You may have heard of a TM 44 Inspection, but be unaware of what it is or your responsibility around them. If you operate commercial premises or are a landlord that has an air conditioning system of a certain size installed, you must have it inspected at least every 5 years. Failure to do so may result in a fine. This article will provide the key facts you need to understand and let you know how to proceed with your next TM 44 Inspection.

If you need to proceed with an inspection, K2 Heating & Cooling Ltd can help you obtain or renew your existing certificate.

The key facts about TM 44 air conditioning inspections

  1. Under UK law (England & Wales), there is a requirement for air conditioning systems to be inspected regularly. This comes under the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspection). The purpose of this is to promote energy efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of buildings.
  2. TM 44 provides guidelines on how to inspect air conditioning systems to ensure they’re operating efficiently and look for ways to save energy.
  3. Air conditioning systems over 12kW must be inspected at least every 5 years. This applies to single units or combinations of units within buildings that exceed 12kW in total.
  4. Only approved engineers like K2 Heating & Cooling that have been accredited by an approved scheme can carry out these inspections.
  5. After a successful inspection, the building manager should receive a report that outlines the efficiency of the system in place, along with any faults and recommendations for improvement.
  6. Building owners who fail to keep up with the required inspections or who are unable to provide an up-to-date inspection report may be fined.

The benefits of having a TM 44 inspection

The primary goal of TM 44 is to ensure the efficient operation of air conditioning systems, reduce energy consumption, and reduce CO2 emissions. By getting your inspection done in a prompt manner, you not only uphold your legal obligations but are also contributing to a greener, more energy-efficient future.
