The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 require inspection of all air conditioning systems with rated outputs over 12 kW at intervals not greater than 5 years.
The regulations require the first inspection of the affected air-conditioning systems to be carried out as follows:
- 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 happen by 4 January 2009
- For other air-conditioning systems, where the effective rated output is more than 12kW the first inspection must happen by 4 January 2011
From 4 January 2011, if the person in control of the air-conditioning system changes and the new person in control is not given an inspection report, the new person in control of the system must ensure the air-conditioning system is inspected within three months of the day that person assumes control of the system.
With their in-depth experience of Facilities Management, Building Services and Production Services Maintenance, AVT are very well qualified to carry out inspections of air conditioning systems and production cooling plant using fully accredited Air Conditioning Inspectors.
