Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) were introduced in 2007. They show the energy usage and typical energy costs of a property and give it an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). All new builds, including every Taylor Wimpey home, come with an EPC when they’re sold so you know exactly how energy efficient your home is when you move in.
As well as telling you your home’s current rating, an EPC will also suggest how this could be improved. It will outline some recommended changes along with the costs you can expect to pay and how much each change could save you in the long term.
