    EPC & grade of Double Glazing

    I've a 1/3rd of a house (to complete it) & a complete house to have double-glazed:

    Found suppliers (probably being fitted by my tame builder) - one of whom quotes "A" & "B" grade, B cheaper.

    Does the grade make any difference to any EPC assessment, please??

    Regards & thanks in advance..

    Even if it did, do you think you'd be able to convince your EPC assessor of that, that you had the better windows, and that in view of that, your EPC grade should be higher?

    There's a lot of 'if's' there, all of which have to be fulfilled. More hassle than it's worth I think.

      The answer to the question is that the grades A, B and C relate to the quality (and thus the longevity) of the frames, not the glass, and whether you go for A or B makes only a minimal impact on the EPC in terms of improved energy efficiency. It's just more cost effective for the owner in the long run.
