Energy Performance Directive Regulations

The Energy Performance Directive (EPBD) aims to reduce carbon emissions by improving energy efficiency. An important requirement is for regular inspections of air conditioning units, the intervals being dependent upon the systems output.

EPBD legislation now requires a business’s air conditioning systems with a combined output of 12kw or over to be inspected every five years. The inspection report assesses the systems’ efficiency and maintenance, identifies any faults and suggests improvements, which could range from servicing the system and replacing filters to replacing the entire plant.

Clean Air can help

We will commission an independent Accredited Air Conditioning Assessor at preferential rates starting from just £565 (plus VAT). We will go through their report and recommendations with you, using our experience and expertise to guide you through any action that is required. If a new air conditioning system is the most sensible investment, we will provide a fully costed proposal and calculate the likely energy and CO2 savings.
