More and more these days I see Energy Performance Certificates are changing, if it is not the Assessment programmes that change it is the government legislation concerning the certificate ratings that is different from those previously produced.
I believe in life one should never stand still and not reverse course when we are convinced that what we do is right, we should keep moving on to produce the best results we can.
people are just coming round to appreciate that the higher the EPC rating then the more energy and costs will be saved for the future.
Whether we like it or not Energy costs money and without energy saving measures similar to that described in the Epc being implemented, it is the same as throwing money away, money that most of us badly need to continue our standard of living.
So in my opinion change in this respect is a good thing if it leads to spending less money with the Energy Companies after all it is us that they get the majority of their profits from.

The current day thinking is that in order to improve the energy saving and reduction of Energy needed to heat our homes then the fabric of our homes requires constructing using the most energy efficient materials. The age of the range of property available for sale or rent in this country varies across the ages and prior to 1980 was not very well put together with a view to being energy efficient.
