Part F Ventilation Testing

It is now a requirement to test ventilation systems in all new build developments, as per Part F of the Building regulations.

At BE we are well placed to carry out Part F ventilation testing – as it can usually be covered at the same time as your air permeability test.

What is Part F Ventilation Testing?Part F Testing

Part F of the Building Regs applies to ventilation requirements, and was last updated in December 2010. In reality we are only recently seeing it’s enforcement and an inconsistent approach from building control bodies, which makes it very difficult to plan for.

Ventilation designers adhere to certain good practice and design when specifying ventilation systems.

There are 5 different ventilation types, ranging from simple background and intermittent fans, to whole house mechanical extract systems with heat recovery. These are labelled as ‘Systems 1 – 5’.

Part F testing validates air flow measurements for the new dwelling and ensures that the system has been configured correctly. Testing should be carried out using UKAS calibrated equipment.
