What does an energy inspection cover?
An energy inspection of your air conditioning system involves a visual assessment of your air conditioning installation. The inspector will examine the equipment and air movement systems including controls.
Access to plant rooms or rooftop locations will be required.
Following the inspection, the inspector will provide you with a report containing:
The current efficiency of your equipment and suggestions for improvement including, where appropriate, its replacement
A list of any faults identified (e.g. condition of air filters etc) during the inspection and suggested actions
The adequacy of the equipment maintenance and suggestions for improvement
The adequacy of the installed controls and control settings and suggestions for improvement
The current size of the installed system in relation to the cooling load
Suggestions for improving the system’s energy efficiency or where appropriate minimising or avoiding the need for air conditioning
You are under no obligation to act on the advice provided in the inspection report.
However, if you do so, it is likely you will reduce energy consumption and costs.
