CIBSE Technical Memorandum 44 definition: ‘Building owners & facilities managers who control the operation of air-conditioning systems have statutory obligations & duties of care in the operation & maintenance of air-conditioning systems & are responsible for commissioning the required air conditioning inspection within reasonable constraints of time, cost & skills, including generating advice for the user, on a consistent basis’

Air Conditioning Inspections

The Government has introduced a new legislation to meet the requirements of the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).The aim is to provide building owners and occupiers with information about the systems performance and identify opportunities to reduce CO2 emissions.

The inspection will highlight measures which, if adopted, will have the potential to save energy and money.

All air-conditioning systems with an effective rated output greater than 12 kW must now have their energy efficiency assessed.

We carry out an inspection , generate a report which includes recommendations to improve the efficiency of the system. These might range from improvements to the maintenance regime, through changes to the way the system is operated, to recommendations on the specification of a new or replacement system.
