Air Conditioning Inspections / TM44
To comply with the Energy Performance Directive, Air Conditioning Assessments are mandatory for systems in excess of 12kW.
We utilise the TM44 Inspection and Assessment methodology as laid down by CIBSE in providing all Air Conditioning Assessments.
In Scotland, the timetable for introduction of these assessments is noted below:
- Systems in excess of 250kW must be assessed by 04th January 2011 and the inspections being carried out from 04th January 2009.
- Systems in excess of 12kW, but less than 250kW must be assessed by 04th January 2013 and the inspections being carried out from 04th January 2011.
The guidance from Scottish Building Standards is that those managing systems in excess of above 12kW, should be arranging inspections now.
As with EPCs, the building owner is responsible for the provision of the inspection and assessment and the validity of each assessment can range from 1 to 5 years depending on the recommendations of the report.
We are members of various Air Conditioning Inspection Panels across the UK, thus have the capability to deliver this service wherever the project may be.
Our qualified air conditioning inspectors can produce TM44 air con reports quickly and professionally.
First off, inspections are legislative, you won’t be able to sell or let your property without having an inspection completed.
- Air Con inspections are designed to improve efficiency and reduce the electricity consumption, operating costs and the carbon emissions for your system.
- Highlighting any improvements to current operation or opportunities to replace older, less efficient systems with a modern high efficiency equivalent.
- By January 2009 all air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 250kW must have had their first inspection.
- By January 2011 all air con systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kW must have had their first inspection.
- Air conditioning systems put into service on or after 1 January 2008 must have their first inspection within 5 years of the date it was commissioned. These air conditioning systems should then continue to be regularly inspected at intervals not exceeding five years.
- Failure to comply would result in fines.
