With energy costs one of the biggest household expenses for many, it's important that we all do what we can to ensure that our properties are as energy efficient as they can be.
However, it is not just a case of being mindful of our spending any more. In just two years’ time - April 2018 - it will be illegal to for landlords to rent out a property with an F or G Energy Performance Certificate rating under a new tenancy agreement.
