Air Permeability Testing

Air tightness plays a critical role in the design and construction of energy efficient 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.

Air Permeability Testing is a requirement for new buildings under Part L of the Building Regulations.Our technicians deliver air permeability testing across the UK for all types of domestic and non-domestic buildings. Air testing forms a key part of our end-to-end set of compliance services.
