Air Conditioning Inspection (ACI) Scheme
Elmhurst's Air Conditioning Inspection Scheme is open to trained and qualified Air Conditioning Energy Assessors. The scheme allows assessors to lodge TM44 Air Conditioning Inspections, and provides opportunities for you to develop your career through quality training and CPD.
More often than not, if an occupied building is fitted with air conditioning then it is likely that an air conditioning inspection is required!
These inspections must be completed by an accredited Air Conditioning Energy Assessor, who can assess the energy efficiency of air conditioning systems and also provide professional advice on how to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of existing systems.
The improvement options reported by Air Conditioning Energy Assessors can also highlight many benefits for businesses, including cost savings, reduced carbon emissions, and improved air quality/temperature.
How to Apply
If you are already trained and qualified to deliver Air Conditioning Inspections you can apply to join Elmhurst's Air Conditioning Scheme by completing the form appropriate to you, below.
Why become an Air Conditioning Energy Assessor?
Expand your existing services
Individuals currently assessing Non Domestic buildings will find it easy to expand their existing services with the inclusion of air conditioning inspections. Unlike an Energy Performance Certificate, Building Owners and Managers require regular air conditioning inspections (no more than 5 years apart for air conditioning systems with 'an effective rated output of more than 12Kw') which means Air Conditioning Inspections can provide more frequent work for Energy Assessors.
Penalties pushing compliance
There are also penalties for businesses in England,Wales and Northern Ireland who do not have a valid Air Conditioning Inspection Report; the current fixed penalty for businesses who fail to secure a report is £300. Moreover if a building owner or manager wants to sell the building, not having a report may negatively impact any transactions with potential buyers.
Air Conditioning Inspections link to The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)
Although air conditioning inspections do not make a building ESOS compliant, the report produced by an Air Conditioning Energy Assessor can help with ESOS reporting, as energy saving measures indentified, can be used by an ESOS lead assessor in their ESOS report.
