Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) assess the likely energy performance of homes. They rely on making generalised assumptions about all homes, using as their basis standard, usually modern, methods and materials of construction. Little allowance is therefore made for the way historic and traditional homes are built and perform. They should therefore be applied with caution.
