star this property answer text <p>The replacement of a heating system must always be carried out in accordance with Building Regulations. Replacing an existing appliance with a less carbon efficient one is not compliant with Building Regulations and any suspected breaches of this should be reported to Building Control in the appropriate Local Authority. Replacing a heating system with a higher carbon option will not be given as a recommended measure to improve the building’s rating on an EPC as this would be contrary to Building Regulations.</p><p> </p><p>The Domestic Buildings Services Compliance Guide (2013) provides further information on this: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/697525/DBSCG_secure.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/697525/DBSCG_secure.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>We are considering the responses to our call for evidence on EPCs and will respond in due course.</p>
