Property type
Mid-terrace house
Total floor area
127 square metres

Rules on letting this property

Properties can be rented if they have an energy rating from A to E.

If the property is rated F or G, it cannot be let, unless an exemption has been registered. You can read guidance for landlords on the regulations and exemptions.

Energy efficiency rating for this property

This property’s current energy rating is D. It has the potential to be B.

See how to improve this property’s energy performance.

Energy efficiency chart This property’s current energy rating is D with a score of 65. It has a potential energy rating of B with a score of 81.

The graph shows this property’s current and potential energy efficiency.

Properties are given a rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).

Properties are also given a score. The higher the number the lower your fuel bills are likely to be.

For properties in England and Wales:

  • the average energy rating is D
  • the average energy score is 60

Breakdown of property’s energy performance

This section shows the energy performance for features of this property. The assessment does not consider the condition of a feature and how well it is working.

Each feature is assessed as one of the following:

  • very good (most efficient)
  • good
  • average
  • poor
  • very poor (least efficient)

When the description says “assumed”, it means that the feature could not be inspected and an assumption has been made based on the property’s age and type.

Feature Description Rating
Wall Solid brick, with internal insulation Good
Wall Solid brick, as built, no insulation (assumed) Very poor
Roof Pitched, no insulation (assumed) Very poor
Roof Roof room(s), insulated Good
Window Fully double glazed Good
Main heating Boiler and radiators, mains gas Good
Main heating Boiler and radiators, mains gas Good
Main heating control Programmer, room thermostat and TRVs Good
Main heating control TRVs and bypass Average
Hot water From main system Good
Lighting Low energy lighting in 43% of fixed outlets Average
Floor Solid, no insulation (assumed) N/A
Secondary heating None N/A

Primary energy use

The primary energy use for this property per year is 241 kilowatt hours per square metre (kWh/m2).

What is primary energy use?

Primary energy use is a measure of the energy required for lighting, heating and hot water in a property. The calculation includes:

  • the efficiency of the property’s heating system
  • power station efficiency for electricity
  • the energy used to produce the fuel and deliver it to the property

Environmental impact of this property

This property’s current environmental impact rating is D. It has the potential to be C.

Properties are rated in a scale from A to G based on how much carbon dioxide (CO2) they produce.

Properties with an A rating produce less CO2 than G rated properties.

An average household produces
6 tonnes of CO2
This property produces
5.4 tonnes of CO2
This property’s potential production
3.0 tonnes of CO2

By making the recommended changes, you could reduce this property’s CO2 emissions by 2.4 tonnes per year. This will help to protect the environment.

Environmental impact ratings are based on assumptions about average occupancy and energy use. They may not reflect how energy is consumed by the people living at the property.

Potential energy rating


By following our step by step recommendations you could reduce this property’s energy use and potentially save money.

Carrying out these changes in order will improve the property’s energy rating and score from D (65) to B (81).

Do I need to follow these steps in order?

Yes. Each step builds on the one before it so you can save the most energy.

For example, it’s more energy efficient to insulate your home before you buy a new boiler. A well insulated home will lose less heat so you do not have to run your boiler as often.

Estimated energy use and potential savings

Estimated yearly energy cost for this property
Potential saving

The estimated cost shows how much the average household would spend in this property for heating, lighting and hot water. It is not based on how energy is used by the people living at the property.

The potential saving shows how much money you could save if you complete each recommended step in order.

Heating use in this property

Heating a property usually makes up the majority of energy costs.

Estimated energy used to heat this property
Type of heating Estimated energy used
Space heating 15052 kWh per year
Water heating 2300 kWh per year
Potential energy savings by installing insulation
Type of insulation Amount of energy saved
Loft insulation 1254 kWh per year
Solid wall insulation 2693 kWh per year

Contacting the assessor and accreditation scheme

This EPC was created by a qualified energy assessor.

If you are unhappy about your property’s energy assessment or certificate, you can complain to the assessor directly.

If you are still unhappy after contacting the assessor, you should contact the assessor’s accreditation scheme.

Accreditation schemes are appointed by the government to ensure that assessors are qualified to carry out EPC assessments.

Type of assessment
Show information about the RdSAP
RdSAP (Reduced data Standard Assessment Procedure) is a method used to assess and compare the energy and environmental performance of properties in the UK. It uses a site visit and survey of the property to calculate energy performance.

This type of assessment can be carried out on properties built before 1 April 2008 in England and Wales, and 30 September 2008 in Northern Ireland. It can also be used for newer properties, as long as they have a previous SAP assessment, which uses detailed information about the property’s construction to calculate energy performance.

Green Deal Plan

Energy efficiency improvements were made to this property by a Green Deal Plan.

Before buying or renting this property, you should ask the property’s owner for a copy of the plan. You can also get a copy of the plan from the plan’s provider with the owner’s consent.

Cost of the plan

Plan charges:

  • are payable as part of the electricity bill
  • reduce as each improvement is paid off
Current charge
£281 per year
Estimated saving
£256 per year
Payment period start
20 May 2015
Payment period end
13 June 2039
Interest rate payable
fixed at 8.0% APR

This is the current charge, but the charge can change over time depending on the details of the plan. The plan can be paid off early, although extra costs may apply.

The estimated saving is based on:

  • the original Green Deal assessment
  • the improvements made by the plan
  • typical energy use for this type of property, using current energy prices
Room-in-roof insulation (flat ceiling U = 0.18, slope U = 0.18, stud wall U = 0.18, gable wall U = 0.18 W/m²K): Thermaline PIR Board
Paid off 5 February 2039
internal wall insulation (U = 0.3 W/m²K) to 100% of uninsulated solid brick wall: Drilyner TL IWI System
Paid off 5 February 2039
