Energy certificates baffle me too; they're about as pointless as the emissions figures for a diesel VW, but I believe they're EU law. Maybe they'll be dispensed of in the UK soon :silent: What a silly comment. Do you think that a post brexit UK will not be subject to global warming and it's effects...
