Air Pressure Testing

Part L of the Building Regulations sets the energy efficiency standards for new homes and requires that a sample of new homes on all developments are tested for air leakage (also known as air tightness, air permeability or air pressure testing). Testing the air tightness of existing dwellings can highlight areas of problems that can be treated cost effectively to improve the energy efficiency of the dwelling as a whole.

The ESconsult Team have a vast wealth of knowledge and onsite experience in the house building process. We will be on hand to give guidance and advice on good practice and commonly known failures in air testing, so that the dwelling achieves the minimum air leakage rate and passes first time.
