Just had one done on a house i rent out. Its lagged, new central heating and new double glazing. Point of it i do not know. No idea what happens if you are not energy efficient. Another way of gaining cash ecmdj

I think one of the reasons behind these certificates is so that prospective purchasers can compare the property to others that may interest them.

Well my house here is top energy efficient but is bloody freezing. Reason, its in billinge and on a hill. Other house is energy efficient c yet is much warmer. Reason is its surrounded by other houses which act as a windbreak and the bilinge house is not. Certicate means nowt as far as i am concerned
