EPC property recommendations

  • Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) continue to be the main method of determining how energy efficient a home is. Each certificate provides a rating from A to G reflecting the current energy performance as well as a potential rating if improvements were to be made.

  • EPCs usually contain a number of recommended measures designed to improve the EPC rating of the property. There are 41 commonly recommended measure such as solar panels, cavity wall insulation, draught proofing etc.

  • Analysis of all EPC certificate recommendations across England and Wales (2023/24) by Dataloft reveals the top 10 most recommended measures by tenure. Solar photovoltaic power tops the list with 57% of all private rental and 79.6% of owner occupied properties having this recommendation.

  • The analysis shows that internal/external wall insulation recommendations are an improvement more common to private rental properties than owner occupied. With generous grants for this type of insulation available to many private tenants, it is a low/no cost way to improve energy performance that may have been overlooked. Source: #Dataloft, DLUHC 2024
