Take a look at the Regulations



Energy Performance Directive Regulations

The Energy Performance Directive (EPBD) aims to reduce carbon emissions by improving energy efficiency. An important requirement is for regular inspections of air conditioning units, the intervals being dependent upon the systems output.

Five year inspections

EPBD legislation now requires a business’s air conditioning systems with a combined output of 12kw or over to be inspected every five years. The inspection report assesses the systems’ efficiency and maintenance, identifies any faults and suggests improvements, which could range from servicing the system and replacing filters to replacing the entire plant.

How Clean can help

We will commission an independent Accredited Air Conditioning Assessor at preferential rates starting from just £565 (plus VAT). We will go through their report and recommendations with you, using our experience and expertise to guide you through any action that is required. If a new air conditioning system is the most sensible investment, we will provide a fully costed proposal and calculate the likely energy and CO2 savings.

The issue of fluorinated greenhouse gases

When it comes to global warming, the effect F-gases (such as HFCs, PFCs and SF6) can be greater than carbon dioxide.  EU Regulations of 2006 mean that many commercial, industrial and public sector organisations have legal obligations with regard to management and control of F-gas.

The basics

Since 2007, operators of stationary air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump equipment have been subject to regulations aimed at reducing fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases). The regulations cover containment, record-keeping, inspection and testing for leakages, and the use of properly certified personnel to recover gases.

How Clean can help

Expert advice is essential. Our HVAC designers will review HVAC equipment, considering efficiency at full load and CO2 emissions and relating them to the Target Emission Rates and Building Emission Rates.
