Energy saving measures boost house prices – DECC 

Making energy saving improvements to your property could increase its value by 14 per cent on average – and up to 38 per cent in some parts of England – new research released today by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) reveals.

For an average home in the country, improving its EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) from band G to E, or from band D to B, could mean adding more than £16,000.00 to the sale price of the property. In the South West, improved energy efficiency from band G to E could increase this value by over £8,000.00

The report, which took into account over 300,000 property sales in England between 1995 and 2011, is the most comprehensive research in this area to date. It indicates that energy efficiency is now a key factor influencing the sale price of most residential dwellings in England. Read the full press release here.
