Air Conditioning Surveys
A Zeta Services Air Conditioning Survey is carried out by a fully trained and qualified specialist. Each report undergoes a thorough Quality Assurance process prior to issue, ensuring accuracy, compliance with the accredited body’s requirements, for example CIBSE, and also ensures that areas of immediate concern are clearly identified. The reports also ensure that a clear actionable plan is developed and easily understood.
Our surveys can be carried out using our highly successful ZetaSafe® software.
The software allows you to follow the surveys in real time as they happen, and key areas needing attention can be notified to maintenance staff as they are found.
Recommended re-inspection dates can be setup within ZetaSafe® for the 3 or 5 year recommendation, or sooner for critical issues.
Assets are barcoded as they are inspected and scanned via PDAs. Barcoding also highlights which samples have been inspected, for example, which fan coil units out of the total within a building.
If there are areas on concern on any energy efficiency area prior to survey, the assessor will be more than happy to provide advice and further support is available for follow up actions from Zeta Services Carbon and Energy Compliance Division technical staff.
Under the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive all air conditioning systems now require regular inspections by an accredited engineer at intervals of not greater than 5 years.
F-Gas Regulation EC No 842/2006 came into force in July 2007
Penalty charge of £300 for:
- failure to carry out an inspection
- failure to keep records of the inspection
- failure by a new "relevant person" (being the person who controls the air conditioning system) to undertake an inspection within 3 months of taking control.
CIBSE document TM44:2007 identifies how building owners and managers should be advised to prepare and keep information from all these inspections so that the time needed to carry them out in future (and hence the cost) can be minimised.
We have produced a separate briefing note on F-Gas Regulations available on request.
