Did you know by 2025 all newly rented properties must have an EPC rating of C and above…

At the moment rental accommodation in Northern Ireland must have an EPC rating of E and above, but did you know that come 2025 all newly rented properties must have an EPC rating of C and above, and all existing tenancies must comply with these new rules by 2028.

There are many ways to improve your property’s energy efficiency and why it is key for landlords to be planning ahead for these proposed changes from the Government.

At @mcginvestments we offer a construction project management service where we carry out building, renovations or refurbishment works on your property, whether it be for your own residential home or an investment property.

Some of the best ways to increase your EPC rating would be installing, new A-rated double glazing windows, these will not only keep your warmer but could also reduce your energy bills significantly.

Another option is loft and floor insulation. Insulating your ground floor is another great way to save money on your heating bills and increase the EPC rating.

Most of the heat in our homes is lost through the roof because most homes do not have enough insulation in the loft. Topping it up from 120mm to at least 270mm of insulation will significantly reduce heat loss.

Other options can be cavity wall insulation, changing the boiler to a more energy efficient one, heating controls and low energy lighting.
