The environment has become an increasingly important issue in all areas of business, particularly in the building services industry.

Forty-five percent of all carbon produced in the UK comes from buildings and the government has set targets to reduce the UK’s energy usage by 20% by 2020. Recent revisions to part L of the Building Regulations are part of the effort to achieve this. Fortunately, energy-efficient technology gets smarter all the time and efficiently designed heating, cooling and ventilation systems really do help to reduce carbon emissions and save your organisation money. Regular maintenance is clearly an important factor in this balance.

All our engineers are ACRIB registered in the safe handling of refrigerants and 21 Degrees is a member of Refcom (the register of companies competent to handle refrigerant gases). This means you can be sure that the refrigeration gases in your systems (all of which require careful control and are covered by EU and UK legislation) are being handled and disposed of correctly. We are also members of BESCA which means that we can self-certify our projects with building control to ensure they meet part L of the building regulations.


They consistently produce a high standard of workmanship which meets the exacting standards of our clients.
