Air conditioning system inspections in Scotland
12th October 2012
As of 4 January 2013 all buildings with air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of between 12 kW and 250 kW must have had their first inspection and are then subject to subsequent regular inspections every 3-5 years depending on the performance of the system.
In January 2009, as stipulated under the Energy Performance in Buildings Directive, the Scottish Government introduced regular inspections for air conditioning systems commencing with a mandatory inspection for air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 250 kW, in January 2011 inspections were extended to air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of between 12 kW and 250 kW, and first inspections on such systems must be completed by 4 January 2013. Testing of air conditioning systems of over 12 kW has been introduced to promote improved energy efficiency of air conditioning systems and in turn, improved energy performance of buildings.
How Mabbett can help?
Our Professional Engineers can undertake an air conditioning system inspection to the relevant standards and assess the current energy efficiency of existing systems and provide recommendations for improved energy efficiency, and if appropriate, re-design the system to achieve maximum energy efficiency.
