Increased energy efficiency through TM44:

A standard Air Conditioning inspections enables the business to comply with UK law, however to be truly beneficial we believe a TM44 air conditioning assessment should deliver valuable energy information on all A/C system installed across a companies facility portfolio.

Working with our clients, we understand the business challenges they face today are;

 Boards are committed to carbon reduction programmes

 Increasing energy costs will impact the profitability of the business

 Compliance regulations in the energy sector are growing

 Energy & Facility Managers want their TM44 report to help them meet these objectives

 The standard TM44 AC Inspection report offers little help other than compliance

Working with Facility Management firms who want to provide the highest quality of service we know

Energy Managers are required to;

 Coordinate inspections for all business premises every 5 years on HVAC systems (TM44 Air Conditioning Inspections)

 implement energy reduction targets to offset whole sale energy price rises

 Maintain A/C system information from A/C asset records which are often inaccurate or do not exist for buildings / facilities

 Identify on-going areas of remedial work & energy efficiency improvements for targeted investment to achieve Carbon footprint reduction commitments and cost savings

 Ensure regulatory changes (such as R22 replacement and F-Gas leak testing) is applied to A/C systems across diverse & dispersed facilities

 Reduce ongoing energy consumption to further reduce running costs
