TM44 – AC Inspections

Air Conditioning (AC) Inspections are a legal requirement under the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations (EPBR). The aim is to improve the energy efficiency of public and commercial buildings, and ultimately reduce carbon emissions.

The inspections were introduced in 2009 and an accompanying Air Conditioning Inspection report will highlight areas where operational improvements can be made to air conditioning systems. Often the savings identified will cover the cost of the inspection.

All air conditioning systems with a combined cooling capacity greater than 12kW are required to have a valid Air Conditioning Inspection report and a certificate in place, with financial penalties present for non-compliance. Inspections for systems above 250kW have been compulsory since January 2009 and systems 12kW – 250kW since January 2011.

An inspection can only be undertaken by an accredited Energy Assessor and must be carried out at least once every five years.

Air Conditioning Inspections are often referred to as ‘TM44 Air Conditioning Inspections’ or a ‘TM44 Inspection’. CIBSE TM44 is in fact the guidance used for all Air Conditioning (AC) Inspections conducted in the UK.

“We chose Utilitywise to undertake our Air Conditioning Inspections as they are experienced energy professionals. Our AC inspector ‘hit the ground running,’ relieving a lot of the aggravation associated with the process. He liaised directly with each site FM, and produced honest and accurate reports in a timely, professional manner – a great service from start to finish.”

“I was very impressed with the thoroughness, technical detail and presentation of the report and recommendations for our AC Inspections. I shall try and include as many of your  recommendations in our budget for next year as possible, and as part of planned maintenance and refurbishment works. Although we have had to comply with legislation, I did however find this process very useful. Thank you once again.”
