Heating & Chilled Water System Balancing
A properly balanced heating and chilled water system is a crucial and cost-efficient way of maintaining adequate pressure throughout your HVAC system, regardless of environmental factors or spikes in usage.
We offer a range of services for all water systems including validation, commissioning and water treatment. Our customer base include hotels, hospitals, government buildings, office blocks, schools & colleges and residential properties.
An unbalanced system can cause various issues depending on the scale of the problem and the size of the building. Some areas may be getting too much heat whilst other parts of the building could be too cold for your staff to work comfortably. A balanced system helps ensure a steady temperature throughout the building and can dramatically reduce the amount of energy wasted.
We can assist in identifying overflows which cause pump sets to work more than they are required. Identifying issues such as these and resolving them quickly and efficiently will also reduce your energy costs.
Is the landlord able to access a property for safety checks?
The contract you make with your tenant should allow you access for any maintenance or safety check work that needs to be done. You must not use force to enter the property. Further information is provided in regulation 39 of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
A landlord has to show that they took all reasonable steps to comply with the law. HSE recommends the following actions and strongly advises that a record be kept of all correspondence with the tenants:
- Leave the tenant a notice stating that an attempt was made to complete the gas safety check and provide your contact details.
- Write to the tenant explaining that a safety check is a legal requirement and that it is for the tenant’s own safety. Give the tenant the opportunity to arrange their own appointment.
HSE inspectors will look for repeated attempts to complete the gas safety check, including the above suggestions; however the approach will need to be appropriate to each circumstance. It would ultimately be for a court to decide if the action taken was reasonable depending upon the individual circumstances.find out more
