What is an EPC?
An EPC certificate tells you how energy efficient your property is, aiming to give you an indication of how much it will cost you to heat and light the property, and how much CO2 the property emits.
It also crucially tells buyers or renters what changes they can make to improve the efficiency of the property in order to reduce their energy bills. This could include everything from adding/upgrading insulation, switching to energy-saving light bulbs and purchasing new A-Rated appliances.
The idea behind an EPC is to inform you of what you can do to improve the energy efficiency of your property, saving money, and also to demonstrate how attractive the property is from an energy perspective for potential buyers.
The better the rating the lower the cost of running the property.
What information does a commercial EPC contain?
An EPC is intended to inform potential buyers or tenants about the energy performance of a building. The purpose of an EPC is to allow consideration of energy efficiency as part of their investment or business decision to buy or occupy that building.
The EPC shows the energy efficiency rating (relating to running costs) of a non-domestic property. The rating is shown on an A-G rating scale similar to those used for fridges and other electrical appliances.
The EPC includes recommendations on how to improve the energy efficiency

How do I test or monitor legionella from my water system?
Where monitoring for legionella is considered appropriate, the sampling method should be carried out in accordance with BS7592 and the biocide, if used, neutralised where possible. Water samples should be tested by a UKAS-accredited laboratory that takes part in a water microbiology proficiency testing scheme such as that run by Public Health England. The laboratory should also apply a minimum theoretical mathematical detection limit of <= 100 legionella bacteria per litre of sample for culture-based methods.find out more
