With electricity costs being a major overhead for most pubs, landlords need to look at energy efficiency to cut bills. Envitae's new website can help.
Online PR News – 07-April-2010 – – Roger Lawrie, partner at specialists in energy compliance, Envitae, points out that Air conditioning can account for up to 50% of energy consumption and some landlords are unaware that legislation requires systems with cumulative output over 12kW to be independently inspected by 4th January. This must be carried out by a government approved energy assessor and is additional to any other service or maintenance. Mr Lawrie goes on to say that assessors are finding that inspection reports make recommendations that in most cases will save energy.
Envitae is pleased to announce the launch of their new website. The site provides lots of useful information and guidance on the requirement for independent energy assessment, helping pub landlords and others involved in commercial property to save energy and save money.
Air conditioning inspection is the responsibility of the system operator, who is often the tenant. The government is now consulting on plans for inspection reports to be compulsorily centrally lodged, this will enable local weights & measures to enforce the regulation.
Envitae is offering free advice for landlords who are unsure about how legislation affects them. More information can be seen on www.air-conditioninginspection.co.uk. Or call 0121 240 7666.
