Reasons to choose Wilson Browne
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) published a consultation on changes to the Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/3118) to implement part of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2018 (2018/844) (Amending EPB Directive 2018) concerning inspection of heating and air conditioning systems.
The consultation proposes:
- That the government continues to take advantage of the derogation from the requirement to inspect heat systems by providing advice to consumers about their heating systems.
- Options for revising the inspection regime for air conditioning systems. The government proposes to increase the inspection thresholds in line with the Amending EPB Directive 2018 so that air conditioning systems with an effective output of between the existing 12kW threshold and 70kW would no longer be required to be inspected every five years.
The consultation closes on 14 July 2020 and can be viewed here
