carbon emissions of one home with another. To enable this comparison the figures have been calculated using standardised running conditions (heating periods, room temperature, etc.) that are the same for all homes, consequently they are unlikely to match an occupier's actual fuel bills and carbon emissions in practice. The figures do not include the impacts of the fuels used for cooking or running appliances, such as TV, fridge etc.; nor do they reflect the costs associated with service, maintenance or safety inspections. Always check the certificate date because fuel prices can change over time and energy saving recommendations will evolve. Remember to look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo when buying energy­efficient products. It's a quick and easy way to identify the most energy­efficient products on the market. This EPC and recommendations report may be given to the Energy Saving Trust to provide you with information on improving your dwelling’s energy performance. 251, Pall Mall, CHORLEY, PR7 3ND

About the building's performance ratings
The ratings on the certificate provide a measure of the building's overall energy efficiency and its environmental impact, calculated in accordance with a national methodology that takes into account factors such as insulation, heating and hot water systems, ventilation and fuels used. The average Energy Efficiency Rating for a dwelling in England and Wales is band E (rating 50). Not all buildings are used in the same way, so energy ratings use 'standard occupancy' assumptions which may be different from the specific way you use your home. Different methods of calculation are used for homes and for other buildings. Details can be found at www.communities.gov.uk/epbd Buildings that are more energy efficient use less energy, save money and help protect the environment. A building with a rating of 100 would cost almost nothing to heat and light and would cause almost no carbon emissions. The potential ratings on the certificate describe how close this building could get to 100 if all the cost effective recommended improvements were implemented. About the impact of buildings on the environment
One of the biggest contributors to global warming is carbon dioxide. The way we use energy in buildings causes emissions of carbon. The energy we use for heating, lighting and power in homes produces over a quarter of the UK's carbon dioxide emissions and other buildings produce a further one­sixth. The average household causes about 6 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. Adopting the recommendations in this report can reduce emissions and protect the environment. You could reduce emissions even more by switching to renewable energy sources. In addition there are many simple everyday measures that will save money, improve comfort and reduce the impact on the environment. Some examples are given at the end of this report.

About the cost effective measures to improve this home's performance ratings
If you are a tenant, before undertaking any work you should check the terms of your lease and obtain approval from your landlord if the lease either requires it, or makes no express provision for such work. Lower cost measures These measures are relatively inexpensive to install and are worth tackling first. The indicative costs of measures included earlier in this EPC include the costs of professional installation in most cases. Some of the cost effective measures below may be installed as DIY projects which will reduce the cost. DIY is not always straightforward and sometimes there are health and safety risks, so take advice before carrying out DIY improvements. 1 Cavity wall insulation Cavity wall insulation, to fill the gap between the inner and outer layers of external walls with an insulating material, reduces heat loss, improving levels of comfort, reducing energy use and lowering fuel bills. Further information about cavity wall insulation and details of local installers can be obtained from the National Insulation Association (www.nationalinsulationassociation.org.uk). 2 Low energy lighting Low energy light bulbs last up to 12 times longer than ordinary ones and reduce lighting costs. About the further measures to achieve even higher standards
Further measures that could deliver even higher standards for this home. You should check the conditions in any covenants, planning conditions, warranties or sale contracts before undertaking any of these measures. If you are a tenant, before undertaking any work you should check the terms of your lease and obtain approval from your landlord if the lease either requires it, or makes no express provision for such work. 3 Solar water heating A solar water heating panel uses the sun to pre­heat the hot water supply, significantly reducing demand on the heating
system to provide hot water and hence save fuel and money. You could be eligible for Renewable Heat Incentive payments which could appreciably increase the savings beyond those shown on your EPC, provided that both the product and the installer are certified by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (or equivalent). Details of local MCS installers are available at www.microgenerationcertification.org. 4 Gas condensing boiler A mains gas boiler that provides both space and water heating will save money, as mains gas is currently cheaper than
off­peak electricity. A condensing boiler is more efficient than other types of boiler, burning less fuel to heat the property. Building Regulations apply to this work. It is also recommended to change the electricity tariff to standard tariff
when off­peak is no longer used. 5 Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels A solar PV system converts light directly into electricity via panels placed on the roof and can be used throughout the home. Building Regulations apply to this work and planning restrictions may apply. You could be eligible for a Feed­in Tariff which could appreciably increase the savings beyond those shown on your EPC, provided that both the product and the installer are certified by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (or equivalent). Details of local MCS installers
are available at www.microgenerationcertification.org. Page 5 of 6

What can I do today?
Actions that will save money and reduce the impact of your home on the environment include: Ensure that you understand the dwelling and how its energy systems are intended to work so as to obtain the maximum benefit in terms of reducing energy use and CO2 emissions. Check that your heating system thermostat is not set too high (in a home, 21°C in the living room is suggested) and use the timer to ensure that you only heat the building when necessary. Turn off lights when not needed and do not leave appliances on standby. Remember not to leave chargers (e.g. for mobile phones) turned on when you are not using them. Close your curtains at night to reduce heat escaping through the windows. If you're not filling up the washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher, use the half­load or economy programme. Check the draught­proofing of windows and replace it if appropriate. If you have unused open chimneys consider blocking them off (making provision for a ventilation opening and a cowl on top of the chimney to avoid dampness).
