Air Tightness Testing
Due to the low heat losses, interior surface stay at the same pleasant temperature year round
Air Tightness Testing is a direct line measurement of the overall quality of construction of a building.
The design strategies of buildings and where specified their controlled ventilation means that ever tighter tests have to be achieved and all of these, including Passive House levels of air tightness can all be achieved with a combination of experience and the correct approach to quality control.
If you are building to a tight level of air tightness then it makes sense to undertake 2 air leakage tests. The initial one will be at first fix stage before the building get closed up as leaks found at this stage .
Heat Recovery Ventilation
Economy – Reduces home heating costs
Health – Clean fresh air benefits everybody
Comfort – Closed windows and draught free ventilation
Energy Efficiency – Recovers heat from the air leaving the building
Condensation Control – Continuous extraction from wet rooms
Security – Constantly locked windows mean security
