Public Access to the EPC Register

As of 22 April 2012, ANYBODY with the postcode can access and download the energy performance certificate for a domestic property, display energy certificates and air conditioning reports. This is being made available so that local authorities can identify buildings in their area with poor levels of efficiency, for research & analysis purposes, to enable Green Deal providers to market their services and to increase public awareness on the levels of CO2 emissions.

Can you prevent your details being made available? Yes you can. Click here to request that your energy performance certificate is 'opted-out' of any data searches. This means your EPC information will not be passed on to others and will not be able to be viewed online.

Air Conditioning Inspections TM44

Air conditioning inspections are now a legal requirement for ALL buildings, both commercial and domestic, with a total cooling capacity of 12kW or more. So if your building has three or more split system outdoor units, you will need an inspection now to avoid a fine.

In order to provide you with an accurate quote for an inspection, we will need the following information as a minimum:

  • The full address of the building
  • The type of system: complex (chillers, cooling towers, air handling units, VAV, fan coil units) or simple (split packaged, VRF)
  • The total number of outdoor condenser units, chillers, air handling units etc
  • The total number of indoor units (split units, fan coils, induction etc)
  • The type of controls (central BMS, multiple/individual)
  • The approximate total conditioned floor area
  • Whether you have system documentation available: floorplans, operating & maintenance manuals, maintenance records, commissioning records

For more information about what is involved in the inspection and the items we will need to survey please click here.
