Air Conditioning Inspections
Air Conditioning inspections are now a legal requirement for all building owners and managers who operate these systems. Do you comply?
The England and Wales the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007, Articles 7-9 of the Directive states that all buildings containing an air conditioning (A/C) system with a rated output over 12kW will require inspection by the 4th January 2011.
These inspections may only be completed by an accredited Air Conditioning System Energy Assessor (ACSEA) at intervals not greater than 5 years.
Why Air Conditioning Inspections?
In most buildings Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) accounts for as much as 60% of the total energy bill and represents the greatest opportunity for savings. As part of the government’s initiative to reduce carbon emissions by 20% by 2020, reducing energy waste in buildings is seen as an important part of the process.
Besides complying with this legislation, having your air-conditioning system inspected by our Energy Assessors will improve the efficiency of your systems by reducing the electricity consumption, operating costs and carbon emissions.
The Audit and Report
A typical A/C inspection would consist of a comprehensive review of the management of these systems identifying opportunities to improve operating strategies, eliminating waste and optimising performance.
Our report will help you comply with the law and clearly highlight the potential savings on site providing you with an action plan and the technical guidance to implement these cost savings.
Our A/C inspectors have extensive knowledge in inspecting A/C plant and systems and have all been CIBSE trained and accredited.
