TM44 Air Conditioning Inspection
All you need to know!
If you control the technical operation of an air conditioning system, are a building manager or owner, you are responsible for obtaining an assessment report. A TM44 air conditioning inspection must be carried out by an accredited Air Conditioning Energy Assessor. Accreditation ensures that the Assessors are professional and competent.
New systems over 12 kW installed after January 2008 must be inspected within 5 years of being put into service. So, in January 2013 you will need to start having TM44 inspections on all re-fits after January 2008. Systems should be inspected every 5 years.
Be aware of partial re-fit works; if any part of an old a/c system is left in place, the site will require a current air conditioning report.
If you have just moved into a space or acquired a building with air conditioning, the law states that you must have a valid air conditioning report within three months of moving in
With an effective rated output greater than 12Kw inspections should have been completed by 4th January 2011
With an effective rated output greater than 250Kw, systems should have been inspected by 4th January 2009.
