If your system has a rated output over 250kW you need an air conditioning inspection report now. Systems over 12kW will need to be inspected before 2011.
Since January 2009, air conditioning inspections have been a legal requirement for any system with an effective rated output of 250kW or more. For systems with a rated output of 12kW or more, the first inspection must be done by 4 January 2011.
The purpose of air conditioning inspections is to provide owners and operators with information on the performance of the air conditioning system(s) so that they can improve them and cut costs if they are using too much energy.
Air con inspections must be carried out by an accredited air conditioning inspector at least once every 5 years. For all systems first put into service on or after 1 January 2008, the first inspection must have taken place within five years of the date when it was first put into service.
Icecap can provide an air conditioning assessment by a CIBSE accredited inspector. CIBSE Certification Ltd accredits only air conditioning inspectors capable of working on complex systems, it does not accredit those who can work on simple systems only, although all those trained and subsequently accredited by CIBSE Certification Ltd will be able to carry out inspections of both complex and simple systems in England, Wales and Scotland.
