New edition of TM44 Inspection of Air Conditioning Systems
17 April 2012
TM44 is available now from the CIBSE Knowledge Portal
Giving guidance for carrying out air conditioning inspections, particularly in the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Malta and Gibraltar, CIBSE TM44 is primarily intended to support inspections which are carried out for compliance with the EPBD, but will also be useful to anyone who wishes to assess the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system.
This edition benefits from experience gained over the past three years of air conditioning inspections, as well as giving clarity to some of the questions about air conditioning system inspections that have arisen over that period.
It also considers the reporting requirements introduced by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) for the production of reports in England and Wales, as well as the parallel requirements for Northern Ireland and Scotland.
The revised edition covers:
- Inspection of packaged cooling systems
- Inspection of centralised cooling systems
- Assessing equipment sizing in relation to the cooling load
- Assessment of ventilation performance
- Advice on alternative ways of delivering cooling
- Explanatory notes for building owners and managers
