The purpose of the TM44 inspections and the resulting report are to ensure that building owners or managers are provided with basic information that gives an indication of the likely efficiency of the air conditioning systems for which they have responsibility, together with some initial advice on how energy efficiency or effectiveness might be improved.


The inspection process required under the EPB Regulations will examine the refrigeration equipment and air movement systems that are part of air conditioning systems, and their controls. It will also examine any documentation that helps understand the systems, or indicates the extent to which the systems have been maintained. The inspector is also required to estimate whether the system is suitably sized for the cooling loads in the treated spaces, and to provide advice on ways in which improvement might be made.


The TM44 air conditioning inspection is required if the effective rated output of systems within a building are more than 12KW.

The aim of the Air Conditioning Inspection Report is to outline any areas within the operation of all HVAC equipment that would improve in performance and reduce energy costs, with the introduction of any no-cost/ low-cost initiatives and any capital investment opportunities that may arise.The survey covered the inspection of air conditioning systems, measuring the performance and powers of fans, and associated cooling electrical load, comparing performance with industry standards to identify energy savings whilst maintaining their minimum performance requirements. A number of other observations are made during the inspection; these cover issues such as the

condition of the air conditioning systems, appropriateness of maintenance regimes, cooling/building loads, fresh air volumes, air change rates and the control of ancillary units. The TM44 inspections is as far as possible carried out by making visual observations of representative sample of the air conditioning equipment and other visual indicators such as refrigerant sight glasses, pressure, temperature or filter gauges, although where these are not available the inspector may have taken some test readings.

The Air Conditioning inspection also included an examination of records of design, construction and maintenance where made available.

Inspectors have a duty to comply with relevant health and safety legislation. This includes a duty to draw the building owner or managers attention to obvious instances of inadequate maintenance or neglect, where these might have implications for the health and safety of building occupants or the public.


Also covered in air conditioning inspection report, is the comparison of size and appropriateness of cooling plant against the cooling loads of the building; and the effectiveness of current maintenance regimes. All of which will enable you to optimise your buildings HVAC operations and reduce energy costs and Carbon Dioxide emissions. Also air conditioning systems which provide no comfort cooling (computer rooms, server rooms, Comms rooms, utility rooms, etc) are exempt from this survey and they are not covered by the inspection.
