energy_ratingDo you need an Air Conditioning Inspection?

As required by the EPBD (Energy Performance of Buildings Directive), all air-conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kW must be inspected every 5years.

Building owners and managers who operate air-conditioning systems that fall within this scope have a legal obligation, under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), to ensure that their buildings are inspected by qualified and certified air-conditioning inspectors (ACIs).

In accordance with the requirements of BS EN 15240 and the CIBSE TM44 reporting methodology, Evolva Energy carries out an extensive survey of each air-conditioning system and produces a comprehensive advisory report, which is issued by building owners and lodged on the Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate register.

An Evolva Energy ACI Report contains:

• Detailed inspection notes and an assessment of the overall performance of the air-conditioning system

• Calculations to assess whether the system is adequately sized or oversized for purpose

• Recommendations for building owners which, if implemented, improves the efficiency and reduce the energy consumption and CO2emissions of the system, resulting in reduced operating costs

• Alternative solutions for air-conditioning strategy, maintenance regimes and technologies.

What level?

Evolva ENERGY can provide assessment for both level 3 and 4 systems. Level 3 assessments will cover all unitary, simple and multi split packaged and simple VRF/VRV air conditioning plants, equipment and systems.

Level 4 assessments cover large centralised air conditioning plants, equipment and systems. Our Level 4 assessors are also accredited to inspect and report on packaged air conditioning systems.
