Air Conditioning Inspections

According to CIBSE Guide F Energy Efficiency in Buildings, air conditioning and air handling systems can account for around 25% of a building’s energy load which is more than 50% of so-called regulated loads (covering heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting and hot water).

The Building Research Establishment (BRE) Client Report for the Department of Energy & Climate Change, HPR218-1001 – June 2016 highlighted that ‘there is considerable variability from system to system of the annual use of electricity for cooling per unit of conditioned space’.

This variance can be attributed to initial equipment sizing, control settings and ongoing maintenance. To help reduce energy consumption from such systems, the European Union’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) introduced an inspection regime for all air conditioning systems over 12 kW.

Organisations responsible for the operation and maintenance of air conditioning equipment are now required to ensure that systems are inspected in line with the regulations.

EVORA carries out air conditioning inspections in line with CIBSE TM44 guidelines.

The inspections records the current system performance and identify ways to improve overall efficiency. The air conditioning inspections also review service and maintenance records and the condition of the system. Alongside producing a compliant report and issuing the required certification, we will also produce a summary report that highlights areas of opportunity and suggested actions.

Our air conditioning inspections are carried out by ‘time served’ air conditioning engineers. Experience is the key requirement in understanding how a wide range of differing air conditioning systems function and how best to optimise performance.

“EVORA have the unique ability to simplify the many complexities of sustainability into a practical and meaningful approach. Their advice and support has enabled us to take a proactive stance to sustainability, which will help ensure the resilience and future performance of our managed assets.”
