Essential Services Regulations – understanding your obligations.

Do you own an accommodation building, school, office, shop, car park, warehouse, public building, or similar?

Then by law, you must conduct regular Essential Services Measures. As a building owner, you are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of all the building’s essential services. An essential service is defined under the Building Regulations 1994 (the Regulations) and includes Air Conditioning Systems, Heating Units, and Mechanical Ventilation.

Generally, for buildings built before 1 July 1994, you must keep records of maintenance checks, service, and repair work. These must be on hand as proof of upkeep for any municipal building surveyor or chief inspector who requests them.

For buildings built or altered after 1 July 1994 the list of essential services including performance and maintenance required, would be included with your occupancy permit or certificate of final inspection.  You must prepare an annual essential service report and you may engage specialist maintenance contractors to assist you. Reports must be displayed on the premises for inspection and provide occupants with important safety information.

Fines up to $100,000 for individuals and $50,000 for companies applying for non-compliance. But more importantly, the safety of building occupants, visitors, and passers-by is compromised if maintenance inspections are not conducted regularly.

Surrey Air will put your mind at ease and answer all your questions relating to the HVAC essential services in your building. Call us today for an immediate on-site inspection.

We had an exceptional experience with the professional team who serviced my heater and evaporative air cooler. They were punctual, provided excellent service, and even went the extra mile by fixing a broken tile on our roof. Highly recommended for their professionalism and attention to detail.

Surrey air came a few weeks ago and serviced my reverse cycle air conditioner for me. They were able to fit me in quickly, there was good communication and the technician arrived on time. The technician was helpful going onto the roof and providing me photos to give to the body corporate re other units that needed attending to.

These guys had the most reasonable call out fee, they were able to attend to fix our issue the day after I contacted them and there was great communication throughout the whole process from booking to the eta of the technicians. They arrived and promptly set to work, getting our cooling back up and running. I would recommend them.
