    Energy Efficiency Certification

    Having your air conditioning systems inspected by an Energy Assessor is designed to improve efficiency and consequently reduce electrical consumption, operating costs and carbon emissions for your system. Energy inspections will highlight improvements in the operation of your existing systems or opportunities to replace older, less efficient or oversized systems with more energy efficient systems.

    By law, all air conditioning systems within a building with a single or combined effective rated output of more than 12kw must be regularly inspected by an Energy Assessor.

    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 1st 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 happened by 4th January 2009.
    • For other air conditioning systems, where the effective rated output is more than 12kw, the first inspection must have happened by 4th January 2011.

    If you control the operation of the air conditioning systems affected by these Regulations, it is your responsibility to:

    • Ensure an inspection has been done in accordance with the requirements and timetable of the Regulations. Keep the most recent inspection report made by an assessor.
    • Give any inspection report kept by you to any person taking over your responsibilities with respect to the control of the air conditioning system.

    Local authorities (usually via their Trading Standards Officer) are responsible for enforcing the requirements relating to air conditioning inspection reports. Failure to commission, keep or provide an air conditioning inspection report when required by the Regulations means you may be issued with a penalty charge notice.

    R22 Refrigerant Replacement 

    After a change in the law in January 2015, air conditioning systems that utilise the R22 refrigerant cannot be recharged with the R22 gas. There are many replacement systems that we can specify that will provide more efficient and cost-effective running. As R22 was also known to be an Ozone depleting CFC gas, it will also be far better for the environment too. We have written an approach for the replacement of an old Air Con System that is R22 based, which you may like to refer to if this is an issue you are facing.
