EPC

We’re selling our flat, and so have to get an Energy Performance Certificate to show how energy-efficient (or not) it is.

The Estate Agent told us no one ever looks at these when they buy a place, but it’s a legal requirement to have anyway! The EPC man just came round to assess the flat, and asked questions about the boiler, meter and UPVC windows (most of which I couldn’t answer – oops!).

It did make me think more about our energy use – but in a flat there’s not a lot you can do to improve energy efficiency, so it’s more about how many gadgets you have and how much you use them. Again – not much I can do to persuade my husband to cut down on his gadget use!!
