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)
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.
Cavity wall, filled cavity
Pitched, 300 mm loft insulation
Fully double glazed
Boiler and radiators, mains gas
Main heating control
Programmer, room thermostat and TRVs
From main system
Low energy lighting in 56% of fixed outlets
Solid, no insulation (assumed)
Room heaters, wood logs
Low and zero carbon energy sources
Low and zero carbon energy sources release very little or no CO2. Installing these sources may help reduce energy bills as well as cutting carbon emissions. The following low or zero carbon energy sources are installed in this property:
Biomass secondary heating
Primary energy use
The primary energy use for this property per year is 183 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 C. It has the potential to be B.
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
3.7 tonnes of CO2
This property’s potential production
2.1 tonnes of CO2
By making the recommended changes, you could reduce this property’s CO2 emissions by 1.6 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 C (71) to B (83).
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.
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.
