What is EPC/DEC?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) summarises prospective energy efficiency of a building. This is useful for property owners, landlords, people looking to sell their home, and has a wide variety of different applications.

Display Energy Certificates (DECs) give non-prospective summarisation of the actual energy efficiency of a non-domestic building.

Having an EPC/DEC improves the asset value of your property, and is essential when selling your property. An EPC is, in fact, required.
