How to pass an Air Tightness Test first time
An Air Tightness test (also known as air leakage test, air pressure test, air permeability test) is a government regulated test to ensure buildings don’t leak or retain too much air.
Air leakages increase heat loss and if air can’t move freely enough it can be dangerous for occupants due to mould, rot, damp and condensation.
UK Building Compliance want to help our clients ensure their buildings pass this test first time, so we’ve designed a simple check list and easy guide to passing an Air Tightness Test.
Designed ventilation systems are excluded from this test, so our technicians will tape up all extractor fans, chimneys, MVHR units, etc to give a true test score.
We offer our services all over the UK, so if you’d like to receive a quote or require further information please contact us.
