    I'm looking at getting an Epc for our house and hopefully it will make it to the E level despite a G rated boiler.

    We have 12cm thick foam celotex as loft insulation. How much "normal" depth does thus equate to?

    From memory, rigid insulation thickness is multiplied by 2 to give an equivalent insulation quilt thickness for entering into the EPC software - at least for England anyway, might be different rules for other areas. So 240mm quilt equivalent.

    This doesn't equate directly to an EPC rating though, it's only part of the overall calculation.
