The below information indicates the energy performance of properties in Uk. Energy ratings vary from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the very least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating factors heavily when attempting to sell your house, as prospective buyers will see how much they're probably going to be spending on their home heating expenses. Property upgrades including insulation assist to considerably increase a home's EPC rating.
