TM44 Inspections – Independent Energy Inspection Of Air Conditioning Units
At Nexus Energy Solutions, we work closely with our clients to ensure their properties are energy efficient and compliant. Air conditioning can be one of the most energy intensive of all commercial systems and it is essential that your cooling and ventilation systems are checked and reviewed on a regular basis. TM44 Inspections take care of this necessity.
TM44 Inspections covers analysis and assessment of the efficiency and sizing of the air conditioning system in comparison to cooling requirements of the building.
The purpose of the TM44 Inspection Scotland is to build higher efficiency levels and the increase the operation of such systems. Findings are recorded in a TM44 inspection report that includes measures which could be undertaken to improve the energy efficiency of the building to reduce cooling load.
The report also highlights timescales for next inspections, which is usually 3 – 5 years. This is subject to the current efficiency of your current TM44 system.
What Are The Benefits?
Did you know that air conditioning systems can account for up to one third of energy usage in a commercial building? A TM44 inspection report will provide recommendations that could help you to reduce this energy consumption.
When you implement the recommendations found in your TM44 report, you could gain the following benefits:
- Reduced Energy Costs
- Improved EPC ratings
- Scheme performance
- Improved CRC energy efficiency
- Improved temperature regulation and air quality
- Increased productivity and comfort across your workforce
TM44 Air Conditioning Inspections
If you are an organisation in England or Wales using an air conditioning system or systems with an output of over 12kW, you will be required to carry out an independent energy inspection (or TM44) of all air conditioning units on your premises. This directive is part of the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificant and Inspections) Regulations 2007 and has been in place since January 2011.
