HVAC commissioning is the process of evaluating system performance and identifying repairs.
It includes bringing the systems into operation, their regulation, the setting up of associated control systems, and the recording of the final settings and the overall state of the final system performance.
To minimise environmental impact and prolong product life, the commissioning process should generally begin at the design stage.
A commissioning plan should be submitted at the same time the Target Emission rate (TER) and Building Emission Rate (BER) calculations are produced.
This allows the Building Control Body (BCB) to check that commissioning is undertaken as work begins.
It is submitted at this time to ensure that provisions specifically included for commissioning purposes do not fall short of value.
This is also done to ensure that engineering exercises are not neglected due to poor understanding of commissioning needs by on-site personnel.
At the end of the commissioning process, the BCB must be ensured that the plan has been followed and that the results of the tests confirm that the performance is reasonable in accordance with the actual building design.
Until notice is received, the building cannot be signed off as being compliant with building regulations.
AmbiRad has stressed that its products are set to recommendations at the first instance, to increase their shelf-life and ensure energy efficient production.
