Air Conditioning Energy Assessments

Air Conditioning Energy Assessments
Due to up to date regulations, air conditioning units with over 12kw outputs now require standard inspections, so as to determine their energy efficiency. This could be one air conditioner with more than 12kw, or several with the combined total of more than 12kw. In either case, you will need to have an energy assessment for your units. This type of inspection is then revisited every five years.

It is your responsibility, if you have an output that falls in line with the regulations, to make sure an assessment takes place and that the details of this are logged in the relevant place. Your local authority may request to see a copy of your air conditioning report and so it is best to keep it safe and filed away for future reference. If you don’t provide the report within seven days, then you could be charged unfortunately.

There are many air conditioning assessment bodies throughout the country, which act on behalf of the local council and undertake energy assessments. This is because, like most building assessments, the energy performance must be regularly checked over. Air conditioning can occupy a large portion of that energy consumption and therefore, the units need assessing. Once passed, the owner is usually given an energy certificate also for reference. This certificate will then not expire until five years later, when a new assessment will need to be carried out. This is to ensure that the air conditioning is still functioning at normal levels and falls within the energy assessment guidelines.

During the assessment itself, the assessor will monitor the performance of the air conditioning unit and also how they interact with further heating throughout the building. They will try and work out if any savings are realistic to the owner and outline any further enhancements that could be made, whereby the owner could save on energy costs.

The aim of the assessor is o help the owner as much as anything and relay information that could help and assist in making the air conditioning as effective as it can possibly be. By incorporating several strategies, you may well end up saving money on your energy bills as a direct result of your assessment and be grateful for the visit. Working in tandem with Environmental agencies and other services, the assessments are accredited throughout the country and are a valuable part of maintaining air conditioning standards.

Why Install Portable Air Conditioning?

Portable Air Conditioning gets a generally negative press, but as research continues and the advancement of technology improves, air conditioning units will become better received.

It is a fact that more and more homes use air-con now, as a means to regulate the heating within the property. In the USA, it is incredibly popular and has become the norm to have air-con installed.

Within businesses, air conditioning is crucial, to keep customers and workers on the floor comfortable in extreme temperature fluctuations.

Heating & Cooling

It is not as often well known that air conditioning offers both heating and cooling functions. Most of us would already know only that they cool an environment, but is through heating too where their advantages lie. Each function is easily adjustable through manual buttons or a remote. Alternatively, you can set the temperature automatically. Air conditioning is a simple and flexible method of controlling the interior climate of your building.

A further benefit of adopting an air-con system for your property or business is that they can prevent air-borne mites, fungi and odours such as smoke. As a result, the air quality will improve in the surrounding location and be a healthier place to dwell.

The biggest gain that you can have with air-con is the potential to control the temperature. In certain parts of the world, air-con can transform a property from almost unbearable to comfortable. In places of work, such as offices, maintaining a neutral temperature will increase productivity and all round staff morale.

Having air-con reduces the level of humidity as well. It is the humid, muggy air that we find particularly uncomfortable to deal with and this can lead to tiredness and irritability. With air-con installed, these feelings are eliminated and you can also keep the windows closed, so as not to let in bugs and other insects which thrive in the heat.

By shutting out the outside air, you are also reducing noise volumes and exterior pollution. This is beneficial especially in the city. In places like shops, it is proven that customers will spend less time in those places that do not have air-con. This is simply down to comfort and so these kinds of businesses need to have these units installed to keep afloat.

Air conditioning is a great way to regulate the micro-climates around us and make sure we can work to our best. Through filters and growing technology, the units can also help reduce harmful particles in the air, helping combat allergies.
