Air Conditioning Inspections

Are your premises air-conditioned? Yes - then having your air conditioning inspected can save you and your company money. We are that confident of identifying energy savings in your system, that if we can't identify energy savings then we will not charge you for the inspection.

What Are They? (The Legal Bit)

As part of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, it is now a legal requirement to have your air conditioning system inspected by an Accredited Energy Assesor.

By the end of 2010 all buildings with air conditioning equipment that adds up to 12kw of cooling should have been inspected. This is roughly a floor area greater than 1,000 sq ft (100 sq m) of conditioned floor space.

Buildings with cooling equipment adding up to 250kw or more should have been inspected by January 2009. This is roughly a floor area greater than 20,000 sq ft (2,000 sq m) of conditioned floor space. If your building has not been inspected, do not fear as we can quickly ensure that you comply.

Why Bother?

Apart from the financial penalties of not having it done, this is currently a fine of up to £5,000, air conditioning systems use large amounts of energy: up to 50% of a buildings energy usage in some circumstances.

The inspection is designed to show you where inefficiencies are in the system and to show how to reduce your electricity consumption and operating costs. In short, we can we save you money.

The Cost?

The cost of an inspection is dependent on the size and complexity of the installation. To date Steve Elphick Associates have identified more savings in the system than the cost of the inspection. We are so proud of this, that we will make you a promise.

"If we can’t identify energy savings in your system then we will not charge you for the inspection".

This makes an inspection with Steve Elphick Associates a win-win situation for you.
