Homeowners could pay up to 50% more on their gas and electricity bills if their property has a poor energy rating.

Every house that has been rented, sold or bought since 2008 has an energy performance certificate (EPC) that is valid for ten years.

An EPC shows you how energy efficient your home is, with a rating ranging from Class A to Class G.

If your home is rated A, it is considered the most energy efficient, while G-rated homes are the worst.

Zoopla experts say the difference in energy costs between the most efficient and least efficient properties could be as much as 52%.

How we bought our first houses

Alex Rose, Director of New Homes at Zoopla said: “Last year around 84% of new homes had an EPC rating of B or higher compared to 3% of existing homes across the country.

“Our analysis of EPC data shows that homebuyers who bought a new home last year save an average of 52% on their annual energy bills compared to a pre-owned home.

Did you look at your property’s EPC rating before you bought it? Let us know in the comments below.

“Government policy is also pushing the green agenda, with the introduction of a ban on gas boilers in new builds from 2025 to raise buyers’ awareness of energy efficiency and the environmental benefits of new builds.”

Here are some of the cheapest homes on the market right now, with the best energy ratings.

It’s worth noting that even older properties can be upgraded to the best energy rating, but it will likely cost you thousands of pounds.

In the long term, however, it lowers your energy costs.
