What is an Energy Performance Certificate?
The ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES IN SPAIN provides two ratings and there are domestic and commercial: The Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) relates directly to the property’s running costs and measures the overall efficiency of a home. The higher the rating, the more energy efficient the home is and the lower the fuel bills will be.
The Environmental Impact Rating (EIR) relates directly to the property’s impact on the environment.
The rating given represents the property’s carbon emissions, i.e. the higher the rating the less impact the property has on the environment.
The Energy Performance Certificate will show the energy efficiency of the property at the time of inspection. The report will make recommendations for improvements, with low, medium and high cost measures, and offer advice on prioritising the different ways of saving energy, in order to reduce fuel bills and the homes environmental impact.

The Assessment: An ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES IN SPAIN assessment can take anywhere between 25 minutes to over an hour for domestic EPCs. Commercial Energy Performance Certificates tends to take longer requiring several hours or days for a complete inspection. The size of the property, the building's age and the ease of access to the property may influence the duration of the inspection. Energy assessments shouldn't cause too much disruption to daily life. Bear in mind that both an internal and external inspection of the property is required including access to loft spaces and the boiler
EPC provide ratings for all sorts of different buildings and highlight their energy efficiency based on factors such as:
The ratings are then presented in a way that is not uncommon on white goods, such as a fridge or a tumble drier. These are standardised, so that buildings can be compared easily. Like white goods, letters are used, with ‘A’ proving the most energy efficient rating and ‘G’ the least. EPCs not only show the energy performance of the building as a carbon based index, but they also provide:
