Air Conditioning Inspections
The EU Energy Performance in Buildings Directive came into force in 2008 and laid out the following
requirements for Air Conditioning Inspections in buildings.
For all systems first put into service on or after 1 January 2008, the first inspection must have taken
place within five years of the date when it was first put into service.
For other air-conditioning systems, where the effective rated output is more than 250kW the first
inspection must have taken place by 4 January 2009.
For other air-conditioning systems, where the effective rated output is more than 12kW the first
inspection must have taken place by 4 January 2011.
If you have not had your system inspection yet, we can organise for one building or a whole portfolio
of buildings. Our Air Conditioning Inspectors all carry the correct PI and have been trained to CIBSE
standards. Whilst the Air Conditioning Inspection usually finds opportunities for energy savings our
trained individuals can also go further by providing an Energy Opportunities Assessment.
Non-compliance of the directive can result in fines, but more importantly if you are managing
buildings that do not have their Air Conditioning Inspection in place, should you have a fire or other
incident, non-compliance could result in more serious actions than a simple fine.
Our approved assessors will carry out a physical on site inspection to examine the installation of
refrigeration and air movement equipment that are installed and includes control systems. We
provide a report to you showing any recommendations we make.
