Air Conditioning Inspections
Air conditioning systems can account for 50% of the energy used in a building, and are therefore specifically targeted in the new legislation. We are here to help you comply with EPBD Article 9 and the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations. The Article 9 Air Conditioning Inspection is gaining recognition as an excellent tool to help you identify energy-saving opportunities. It often pays for itself in just a few weeks when no and low-cost measures identified during the inspection are implemented. The aims of the inspection are to:
- Provide building owners/operators with information about system performance, and
- Identify opportunities to reduce your CO2 emissions and save energy and money
Which systems require inspection?
An air conditioning system is defined within the regulations as “a combination of all the components required to provide a form of air treatment in which the temperature is controlled or can be lowered, and includes systems which combine such air treatment with the control of ventilation, humidity and air cleanliness”. The regulations do not apply to process cooling systems.
When will the Regulations apply?
- First inspection of all existing systems over 12 kW completed by 4 January 2011.
- New systems over 12 kW installed after January 2008 must be inspected within 5 years of being put into service.
