TM44 Inspections - Air Conditioning Energy Assessments TM44 Inspection Information, Legislation, Benefits & Costs
CIBSE TM44 is used as the guidance for air conditioning inspections in the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Malta and Gibraltar. The guidance is primarily intended to support inspections which are carried out for compliance with the EPBD, but will also be useful to anyone who wishes to assess the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system.
Air conditioning energy assessments are now a legal requirement under The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 SI 2007/991 amended by SI 2007/1669, SI 2007/3302 and SI 2008/647. We’ve written in more detail on both EPBD and air conditioning compliance obligations.
The person who controls the operation of the system is the person who has the responsibility for ensuring an inspection takes place every 5 years. Only systems that are used purely for process cooling are exempt form the air conditioning inspection laws.
The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive is policed by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (Trading Standards). Failure to comply with the directive could include reoccurring fines of £300 for smaller air conditioning systems (per non-compliance visit). For more complex systems, some councils have stated that non-compliance could result in larger fines relevant to the level of deemed negligence. The TM44 Inspection of air conditioning systems is also a requirement in order to obtain and renew ISO:8001 accreditation.
In short, you could save significantly more than it costs to carry out the air conditioning assessment, with very little capital expenditure. How much you can save will depend on the age and efficiency of the air-conditioning system and controls installed. An ‘Enhanced TM44 Inspection’ gives a more in depth assessment of the air-conditioning system. Thus, we would highly recommend our clients to consider this type of TM44 inspection in order to maximize identified potential savings.
We go into depth on the subject of Energy Savings which can be found on our news page.
The costs of a TM44 inspection depends on the type of air conditioning system that you have installed. The CIBSE TM44 inspection guidance describes the methodology to follow so we would need to know about the components of your system in order to quote a price. The inspections fall under 2 categories, level 3 inspections & level 4 inspections.
An example of a TM44 inspection level 3 would be 7 split units with a centralised controller. A level 4 inspection would typically involve 1 or more AHU and/or chillers, these type of inspections tend to cost more due to the time taken to inspect the components.
If you would like to know more about TM44 inspection costs then please let us know what equipment you have installed and we will get back to you with a formal quote and competitive price.
