Greenzone LogoIf you control a commercial property, then you should be aware that air conditioning inspections (ACI), also known as TM44 inspections, are now required by law.

These inspections are usually carried out by a qualified external party, such as accredited level 4 industry experts Green Zone Surveys. Green Zone Surveys provide both TM44 and commercial EPCs (energy performance certificates) to businesses in the UK, and are renowned for their reliability and longevity when it comes to air con systems and business efficiency.

ACIs became compulsory for businesses after it emerged that UK building accounted for over 50% of carbon emissions and energy consumption, leading to an increased rate of comfort cooling.

The government focus on make the country more energy efficient and environmentally friendly has meant that many businesses are now able to apply for schemes and funding to improve the efficiency of their office or building, including tax breaks and energy-efficiency loans.

Air conditioning units form a huge part of the UK’s problems with over-consumption, but TM44 air conditioning inspections can greatly reduce wasted output saving both cost and protecting the environment in the longer term.

Businesses must be compliant with TM44 regulations if they operate air con in their property. For more information please visit Green Zone Surveys also provide F-Gas compliance associated with air conditioning, as well as a number of other commercial services including kitchen extract cleaning, thermal imaging, and asbestos surveying.
