ACRS can advise you if your equipment needs to be assessed and we will put you in touch with a qualified Energy Assessor who will ensure that you are complying with the current regulations.
Following the inspection, you will be issued with a Certificate of Inspection, a Compliance Report and any recommendations considered appropriate.
Air Conditioning Inspection Certificate
With effect from January 2011, it is now mandatory for all premises with a combined cooling output of 12Kw or more to have an Air Conditioning Inspection Certificate.
Systems have to be inspected at least once every five years. Systems installed on or after January 2008 must have their first inspection within five years, whilst older systems must have had their first inspection before January 2011. For all older systems over 250 Kw they must have had their first inspection before January 2009.
Your local authority is responsible for enforcing the requirements of the Air Conditioning Inspection Certificate. If your air conditioning falls under the scope of this requirement, you must be able to provide an Air Conditioning Inspection Report within 7 days of the request being made. Failure to do so could result in a penalty charge notice being issued.
Failure to commission, keep or provide a report when required by an enforcement officer is also an offence which could incur further penalties.

15% of the UK population suffer with hayfever during the summer months, yet installing an appropriate Air Conditioning System could go a long way to help alleviate their symptoms. Some Air Conditioning Systems can actually filter pollens by up to 90%, helping keep rooms protected by the system almost pollen free!
A modern air conditioning system enables you to enjoy a constant temperature within rooms without the necessity of opening windows, thus keeping you relaxed and comfortable at all times whatever the outside weather or temperature. They also dehumidify the air thus increasing your overall comfort and wellbeing.
