Alex Strong, Cool-Therm’s technical director, has achieved CIBSE certification to carry out air conditioning inspections under TM44.
The inspections are required under the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulation.
CIBSE Technical Memorandum TM44 sets out the detailed framework for assessment, specifying the approach that should be taken in evaluating efficiency and performance.
It also requires advice to be given the building owner on steps to improve the efficiency and operation of air conditioning.
"Building owners and managers are only now getting to grips with the requirements," says Alex Strong. "The enforcement officers have been relatively lenient to date. However, it appears they are beginning to take a tougher stance. We are gearing up for increased activity over coming months."
