Air Conditioning

Air Conditioning

Air-Conditioning systems make an increasingly significant contribution to carbon emissions from buildings. From January 2009, air-conditioning systems have come under the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations and will require an assessment and report on their energy efficiency.

Systems over 250kW must have had their first assessment by 4 January 2009, those over 12kW by 4 January 2011.

Air-Conditioning Energy Assessors (ACEAs) can accredit at two levels:

  • Level 1 ACEAs may produce reports on simple, packaged air-conditioning systems
  • Level 2 ACEAs may also produce reports on more complex, centralised air-conditioning systems
Accreditation

ecmk operates an Accreditation Scheme for ACEAs which will give you:

  • A licence to operate
  • A means of lodging the EPCs you produce with the Central Register
  • Technical survey support
  • On-going training for Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
  • The assurance of a quality control process
All Energy Assessors need to be accredited to lodge Air-Conditioning Reports.

A qualification for Air-Conditioning Energy Assessors now available and you can also accredit through the APEL route by demonstrating your experience of carrying out assessments of Air-Conditioning systems using an approved methodology such as CIBSE TM44.
