The TM44 survey inspection's sole focus is to seek improvements in energy efficiency. This will result in lower energy bills for the occupier and reduced CO2 emissions. The system is thoroughly inspected by an accredited engineer.
Recommendations are then made to improve the operation of the system. We often find that we can recommend no cost or low cost solutions to quickly reduce running costs by at least 10% as a direct result of our inspection.
The regulation is policed by local Trading Standard officers and financial penalties will be issued to landlords and tenants who fail to have their TM44 air conditioning surveys undertaken. Solicitors are starting to request sight of the document before they complete property transactions. Since this is environmental legislation companies and organisations could suffer reputational problems for failing to comply.
