Air conditioning EPC

Get ready for 2011

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

All air-conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kw must be regularly inspected by an Energy Assessor. The inspections must be a maximum of five years apart.

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

footPRINT appreciates as this new legislation comes into force air conditioning unit owners will need help and guidance, we firmly believe it is our role to handle all issues surrounding the certificate, essentially offering a complete service rather than just the certificate alone.
