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.
||Solid brick, as built, no insulation (assumed)
||Pitched, no insulation (assumed)
||Fully double glazed
||Boiler and radiators, mains gas
|Main heating control
||Programmer, room thermostat and TRVs
||From main system
||Low energy lighting in 31% of fixed outlets
||(other premises below)
Primary energy use
The primary energy use for this property per year is 346 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
One of the biggest contributors to climate change is carbon dioxide (CO2). The energy used for heating, lighting and power in our homes produces over a quarter of the UK’s CO2 emissions.
- An average household produces
- 6 tonnes of CO2
- This property produces
- 3.8 tonnes of CO2
- This property’s potential production
- 2.5 tonnes of CO2
By making the recommended changes, you could reduce this property’s CO2 emissions by 1.3 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
Making any of the recommended changes will improve this property’s energy efficiency.
If you make all of the recommended changes, this will improve the property’s energy rating and score from E (51) to D (66).
What is an energy rating?
An energy rating shows a property’s energy efficiency.
Properties are given a rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).
Properties are also given a score. The higher this number, the lower your CO2 emissions are likely to be.
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
9877 kWh per year
- Water heating
2380 kWh per year
Potential energy savings by installing insulation
4889 kWh per year
2565 kWh per year
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
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.
