Are Your Property’s Air Conditioning Units Compliant?

Are Your Property’s Air Conditioning Units Compliant?

As a property owner, it is a legal requirement to ensure all air conditioning units are TM44 inspected every 5 years or risk penalties for non-compliance.


What is a TM44 Inspection? 

TM44 air conditioning inspections are a legal requirement under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). This legislation is designed to improve the energy efficiency of public and commercial buildings and reduce carbon emissions.

TM44 inspections must be completed by an independent, accredited assessor and a copy of the certificate should be kept on site.

How will TM44 benefit you? 

The main purpose of a TM44 inspection is to provide property owners and occupiers information about the systems performance and identify opportunities to reduce CO2 emissions. The air conditioning inspection will highlight measures that will have the potential to reduce energy consumption and costs.

Having an air conditioning system inspected by an accredited air conditioning energy assessor is designed to improve efficiency, reduce energy consumption, operating costs and the carbon emissions of the system.

What are the penalties for non-compliance? 

Building owners and facilities managers have a statutory obligation and duty of care in the operation and maintenance of air conditioning systems and are responsible for commissioning this report. If your air conditioning unit is not inspected by an accredited assessor every 5 years, you could face a fine of £300 per unit.

Although there is no legal requirement for you to act on the recommendations made on our report, many of the saving opportunities we will identify will be low cost or no cost changes, which can be implemented quickly and inexpensively and the savings made will often cover the cost of your inspection.
