CIBSE TM44 assessment – an energy efficiency assessment of a buildings air conditioning system with a rated output of 12kW or more. BSSEC provides air conditioning inspections to CIBSE TM Air conditioning inspections are required under the Energy Performance in Buildings Directive. CIBSE TM44 is used as the guidance for air conditioning inspections in the UK, the TM44 provides guidance on conducting an air conditioning inspection to.

CIBSE TM44 Inspection of Air Conditioning Systems
The operator — the person who controls the technical functionality of the system, usually the owner, office manager or facilities manager — is responsible for ensuring the business obtains an up-to-date TM44 inspection. Mandatory inspections The inspection of air conditioning systems in non domestic buildings with a cibee output of over 12kW became mandatory in January in England and Wales, under the Energy Performance of Buildings EPB Regulation 20 Article Refrigerant Thermal Decomposition Products.
As the quality and frequency of system maintenance affects efficiency, the inspections represent an independent assessment of whether the maintenance being carried out is appropriate.
The report also identifies whether mandatory requirements such as the F Gas Register are in place. Our Inspectors This may be through improved maintenance procedures but will certainly include references to systems accessories, controls and general operation that can all be adopted to reduce power consumption and CO2 emissions. A TM44 inspection report is now required when selling or letting a property, along with other energy efficiency assessments for your building.
The F Gas Register has to be updated after each system breakdown, service call or maintenance visit irrespective of whether it involves refrigerant loss or replenishment. If you are a human and are seeing this field, please leave it blank. Mechanical cooling refers to a system that contains some form of refrigerant. The energy assessor will suggest any improvements that could be made to your existing system to ensure it performs efficiently.
Reasons The regulations have been put cisbe place as a means of assessing the energy performance of a building and the plant that serves it.
Air conditioning is an often overused word, but in the context of the inspections encompasses all systems that either include mechanical cooling directly or are served by equipment including mechanical cooling. This should identify each system, any maintenance carried out, the nature of any repairs, any leakage checks annual for small systems, 6 months for systems containing more than 30kg of refrigerantrefrigerant losses and also any refrigerant added for each HFCF or HFC system.

For older systems that run on R22 refrigerants — a gas which is now banned by the EU for its harmful global warming effects — the assessor should suggest replacing the system with a modern more efficient system.

Skip to main content. This applies to multiple systems as well as single units so a site with four 4kW air conditioning units also needs to be inspected.

The inspections have to be repeated every 5 years. With the benefit of the experience gained over the past three years, and to clarify some of the questions about air conditioning system inspections that have arisen over that period, the guide has been revised.
It is primarily intended to support inspections which are carried out for compliance with the EPBD, but it is also useful to anyone who wishes to assess the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system. There cannot be more than five years between each cjbse, which must be carried out by an accredited energy assessor. Heavy-Duty Truck Sytems Chapter Low Energy Consultancy have a dedicated team of accredited air conditioning inspectors who are able to provide level 3 simple and 4 complex inspections.
The inspection is a legal requirement and is cobse to improve efficiency, reduce energy consumption, operating costs and the carbon emissions of air conditioning systems. Development Of Quantitative Structure.

The revision has also provided the opportunity to incorporate the separate legislative requirements for Northern Ireland and Scotland in the main text of the guide, rather than as separate addenda. The issue takes into account the reporting templates produced by the Department for Communities and Local Government for the production of reports in England and Wales.
Summary Our recommendation would be that a client establishes a phased replacement programme for R22 refrigerant based equipment for the following reasons:
