Energy & Structural Performance
An energy performance certificate (EPC) is required for any home or commercial premises in the UK. The certificate is a multi-coloured chart which visualises your property’s EPC rating.
The EPC rating of a building communicated how efficient the property is to run – its energy performance. The certificate will also show where improvements could be made, and what your energy rating would be should these changes be made.
Some aspects which influence a property’s EPC rating include:
- The materials used during construction
- The presence of renewable technologies
- Age of the property
- Structural performance of the property – shape, size, construction methods
An Eco home is planned in such a manner that its efficiency performance will be high from the very beginning.
If you’re planning to build an Eco home in Norfolk, Suffolk or Essex – or if you require any advice or information regarding energy performance certificates – simply contact EPC Buildings today.
EPC Buildings stands for Energy Performance Construction, so we understand the what it takes to make a new home gain the highest energy performance certificate.
