Air Conditioning Energy Assessment
Time Is Running Out For Air Conditioning Users
Are you complying with the new legislation?
If you have air-conditioning, under new legislation in accordance with the Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD) your system may require an Air Conditioning Energy Assessment inspection.
Failure to comply could result in a fine!
Who & When?
Premises which have systems with a combined total cooling output of 12kw or more must be inspected no later than 4th January 2011.
Premises with a total combined cooling load of 250kw must be inspected as soon as possible.
After the initial inspection a reassessment must be carried out every 5 years.
What are air-conditioning inspections?
Typically, an inspection would include:
• Documentation review.
• Comparison of maintenance with industry good practice.
• Inspection of system components.
• Assessment of controls and settings.
• Estimation of cooling load.
• Review potential for improvement or alternatives.
• Report on the findings and advice.
What to do next?
AC inspections can only be performed by an Energy Assessor that has been accredited to inspect AC systems by a recognised authority.
