Energy Performance Certificate - A-Rating

Our new homes at Swan’s Nest have ‘SAP’ ‘A’ rating, the most energy efficient band, so you have peace of mind that your new home will help you to achieve low energy bills

Our new homes are, on average, up to 11% more efficient than our competitors.*

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) shows the current and potential energy rating of a property, known as a ‘SAP’ rating. ‘SAP’ stands for Standard Assessment Procedure and is the Government’s recommended system for producing a home energy rating.
