Project: Air Pressure Testing The Mumbles, Swansea

Air Pressure Testing The Mumbles, Swansea

Completed: 16/10/2018

Technician: Mikey Crampton

The Brief

We were instructed to complete a Domestic Air Pressure test on this new-build house located in Swansea.

The required target for the test was a very low 3.

This is because the house is fitted with an MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery) unit which recovers heat from the air that leaves your house- both reducing bills and energy usage. These units can recover up to 98% of this heat and return it to the other rooms in your house, meaning that for an MVHR unit to work efficiently you need an air tightness of below 3.

The Process

After reviewing drawings, on site testing was ready to be completed. All suitable equipment was set up and checked over to ensure the best possible result.
