Air Conditioning Inspections

What is an Air Conditioning Inspection?

The Government introduced Air conditioning inspections as part of the ‘Energy Performance of Buildings Directive’ to give building owners and occupier’s essential information on the performance of their air conditioning systems. It will highlighting improvements that can be made to ensure that your system is working system at peak efficiency and as a result reducing both carbon emissions & operating costs to the user. All inspections are now lodged onto a central government register.

Why do I need one for my property?

From 4th January 2011 all buildings with air conditioning systems that have a total rated cooling output over 12kW (i.e. the combined cooling output of all the air conditioning units in that property) are required to have a valid air conditioning report in place. Systems below 12kW are exempt from the requirement however it is recommended that regular maintenance inspections are carried out by a qualified engineer to ensure the system is working at peak efficiency.

Newly installed air conditioning systems over 12kW must be inspected within the first 5 years of operation.

Inspections should be carried out every 5 years and the penalty for failing to have an air conditioning inspection at present fixes at £300.

This is obviously a very brief overview of the inspections but should you require more in-depth advice please don’t hesitate to contact us.
