Air-conditioning inspections

As part of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, the owners or operators of buildings with air conditioning systems with a rated maximum calorific output greater than 12kW must have mandatory inspections carried out of those air conditioning systems.

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.

Building owners and managers who control air-conditioning systems have statutory obligations and duties of care in the operation and maintenance of air-conditioning systems.
