Air Conditioning inspection

According to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), air conditioning systems over 250kW must have an independent inspection to ensure they comply with existing laws, systems between 12kW and 250kW will also require inspection by the beginning of 2011. Inspection of systems between 12kW and 250kW must be completed by 4th January 2011. It is the legal responsibility of the building owner or manager who controls the air conditioning system to ensure inspection is carried out, so importantly, it could be part of the tenants duty and is additional to and independent of work normally carried out by air conditioning contractors.

From 6th April 2012, the mandatory TM44 air conditioning assessment will need to be lodged on the Landmark database (Landmark manage the Government database formed to hold all air conditioning reports).

Air Conditioning Audit and R22 refrigerant replacement

Effective from 1st January 2010, R22 gas regulations mean it will be illegal to use HCFC's such as R22 refrigerant when servicing and maintaining air conditioning equipment. Temporary use of recycled/recovered R22 refrigerant gas is possible until the end of 2014 but availability could be limited and costs high. From 1st January 2015 sales or use of recycled/recovered R22 refrigerant gas will be prohibited.

F Gas legislation conformity

The new F Gas regulations became law on 4th July 2006 with the majority of measures taking effect from 4th July 2007. The main objective of this regulation relates to limiting the harmful effects of greenhouse gasses, to contain, prevent and thereby reduce emissions of the fluorinated greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto protocol. The regulation addresses containment, use, recover, destruction, reporting, labelling, training and certification on the market prohibitions for the fluorinated gases.
