Air Conditioning Inspections (ACI)
At Hemmy Ltd we can mobilise our air conditioning inspectors to undertake a survey on any type of building across the U.K:
- Article 9 of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) requires that all air-conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kW must be regularly inspected by an Air conditioning inspector every 5 years, since the 4th January 2011.
- Since 6th April 2012, all Air Conditioning Inspection Reports and certificates must be produced via CLG software report production tool for mandatory lodgment on the Government Landmark Database. The ACI report and certificate will not be valid if they are not lodged. System owners of more than 12kW installed rated cooling capacity should act now, otherwise you are liable for a financial penalty.
- Air Conditioning Inspection Reports and Certificates must be submitted for Health & Safety audits as part of the legal documentation that demonstrates compliance.
- The air conditioning inspection is designed to improve efficiency and reduce electricity consumption, operating costs, and carbon emissions. ACI assessments highlight improvements to the operation of the existing installations as well as opportunities to improve or replace older, less efficient and possibly oversized systems with new energy efficient systems.
- AC energy efficiency may be improved by alternative solutions to strategy, maintenance regimes and air-conditioning technologies.
Non-compliance with ACI legislation will result in a penalty. This is in addition to the cost of a compliant ACI report.
