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.
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.
||Average thermal transmittance 0.26 W/m²K
||High performance glazing
||Boiler and radiators, mains gas
|Main heating control
||Time and temperature zone control
||From main system
||Low energy lighting in all fixed outlets
||Air permeability 5.0 m³/h.m² (as tested)
||(other premises above)
||(other premises below)
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:
Primary energy use
The primary energy use for this property per year is 74 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 B. 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
- 0.8 tonnes of CO2
- This property’s potential production
- 0.8 tonnes of CO2
By making the recommended changes, you could reduce this property’s CO2 emissions by 0.0 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.
How to improve this property’s energy performance
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 estimated saving is based on making all of the recommendations in how to improve this property’s energy performance.

Heating use in this property
Heating a property usually makes up the majority of energy costs.
Estimated energy used to heat this property
- Space heating
1249 kWh per year
- Water heating
1455 kWh per year
Potential energy savings by installing insulation
The assessor did not find any opportunities to save energy by installing insulation in this property.
You might be able to receive Renewable Heat Incentive payments. This will help to reduce carbon emissions by replacing your existing heating system with one that generates renewable heat. The estimated energy required for space and water heating will form the basis of the payments.
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
SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) is a method used to assess and compare the energy and environmental performance of properties in the UK. It uses detailed information about the property’s construction to calculate energy performance.
This type of assessment must be carried out on all new properties built after 1 April 2008 in England and Wales, and 30 September 2008 in Northern Ireland.
