Energy saving is an essential concern in building services engineering as a significant proportion of energy consumption in the European Union is due to building’s operation. The improvement of the Energy Performance of buildings / households and the reduction of CO2 emissions has lead the Cypriot Government to adopt the 2010/31/EE in building regulations. We aim to provide energy consulting services to optimize our mechanical and electrical services.

Our engineers are capable to understand the demands of any building project and help our clients incorporate sustainability and energy efficiency into their projects from the very beginning. We also offer our clients advice on how to save energy within their existing premises and facilities by home energy efficiency upgrades.

Our team provide expert advice and energy services in the following areas:

 

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) gives information about the energy efficiency of the building to owners, prospective buyers and tenants. An EPC has two parts a graphic rating and a recommendations report. The rating is calculated based on the performance of the building and its building services such as heating, lighting, air conditioning. It is known as asset rating and begins from ‘A’ to ‘G’, which shows how energy efficient the building has been designed and modified. An ‘A’ rating indicates that a building is very efficient, consequently reduced fuel bills. Α ‘G’ rating shows an inefficient building with higher fuel bills. EPC has to be accompanied with a description of the potential rating of the building if all the proposed cost-effective measures are carried out. The age, location, size and condition of the building are taken into account for the production of an EPC and depending on these characteristics a building’s rating varies.

 

Energy Audit

The energy audit is one of the first tasks to be performed in an existed household or building based on real data aimed to improve the energy efficiency and reduce the energy operating costs. An energy audit consists of a detailed examination of how a household/building uses energy, what the household/building pays for that energy, and finally recommends changes in operating practices or energy consuming equipment that will cost effectively save money on energy bills. The Energy Audit can be undertaken only by a certified Energy Auditors, enrolled in the Energy Service Department.

 

Air Conditioning Inspection

According to number 11 article of building regulations 2006 and 2009, all Air Conditioning systems with an effective output rated more than 50kW total power in a building must be inspected, and those more than 12kW must also be inspected. The purpose of an Air Conditioning System inspection is to make your building more energy efficient and reduce the CO2 emissions.The inspection of Air Conditioning systems is only undertaken by certified energy air conditioning inspectors. A fully report follows the inspection and must be given to the owner of the building presenting the results and recommending any improvements/ upgrades of the system.

 

Heating Inspection

According to building regulations of 2006 for the Energy Performance of the buildings (142(I)/2006, Articles 10,12 and 13), the inspection is mandatory for heating systems with boilers that have an effective output rated in the range of 20-100kW. The aim of a heating inspection is the same with an Air Conditioning Inspections; make the building more energy efficient and reduce the CO2 emissions. A heating inspection must be taken place every 5 years.
