Air Permeability Testing

Air Permeability Testing is a requirement for new buildings under Part L of the Building Regulations.

BE is accredited to deliver air permeability testing across the UK for both domestic and non-domestic buildings. Air testing forms a key part of our end-to-end set of compliance services.

Air tightness is an incredibly important issue to deal with when designing and building low energy buildings. Uncontrolled air leakage through the fabric of a building creates heat loss, and significantly affects the energy performance in standard assessment tools like SAP and SBEM.
