Kent Vision Live – Air Conditioning Installation and Maintenance Advice

Synecore will be attending Kent Vision Live on Wednesday 10 May at the Kent Event Centre in Detling, near Maidstone to offer advice on air conditioning installation and maintenance. The annual exhibition invites businesses from all sectors to exhibit and network with like minded professionals.

Throughout the one day event, the Synecore team will be on hand to answer any questions regarding the air conditioning in your business, including the rules and regulations on maintaining air conditioning.

The team will be located at stand 237 in the Maidstone Exhibition Hall on Wednesday 10 May. Here, visitors will receive helpful advice on new air conditioning installation and maintenance and find out how you can benefit from our seven year warranty on air conditioning systems by major brands, including Mitsubishi Electric, Toshiba and Daikin.

We will also be on hand to discuss how to extend the life of your air conditioning system, through regular maintenance, and the legal obligations associated with FGas regulations, TM44 assessments and the phase out of old air conditioning systems that run on R-22 gas.

To give you a taster, here is a brief overview of your obligations to running air conditioning in your business.

FGas regulations

FGas regulations affect businesses that operate an air conditioning system with a CO2 equivalent charge weight of 5 tonnes or more. It is the company’s legal obligation to remain FGas compliant and the responsibility of the operator (Office Manager, Director, Facilities Manager or Landlord) to ensure the system is regularly maintained and service to prevent harmful leaks. Smaller systems may only need to be checked once or twice a year. A large VRF air conditioning systems should be fitted with a leak detection system and receive regular maintenance.

TM44 assessments

A TM44 assessment is a properties energy rating for an air conditioning system. Just like an EPC assessment, this is a legal requirement and the assessment should take place every five years.

R-22 phase out

R-22 is a harmful ozone depleting gas that is now banned. The gas is commonly found in systems that are more than 15 years old. While it is not illegal to operate a system using this gas, should it have a leak, it is illegal to repair and top up with R-22 gas. As a result it is highly recommended that affected air conditioning systems are replaced.
