Inspections show 1 in 20 air conditioners not in acceptional condition

Inspections by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) show that a surprizing 1 in 20 air conditioning systems are failing to meet the required standards in the UK.

Building owners were often noticing that, against expectations, energy bills were increasing due to faulty and unreliable equipment that had been repaired.

The CIBSE are trying to tackle this problem by leading a campaign to force and push the government to help fix the problem, and ensure that all air conditioning units meet the necessary standard that is expected.

The campaign is supported by the UK Green Building Council, the British Institute of Facilities Management, BRE Global and the heating and Ventilating Contractors’ Association and has recieived over 300 industry signatures.

President of the CIBSE, Rob Manning said: “The campaign aims to bring together the many voices of frustration and concern to form one united call for action. We need to raise the issue of non-compliance up the government agenda and promote the benefits of increasing compliance rates.”
