Enpro UK provides on-site air tightness testing throughout the UK on both commercial and residential buildings. We also offer a free consultancy at design stage, or a one-off pre-test visit to highlight problem areas. Air tightness is the key feature of any energy efficient building; by reducing wasted heat and allows the buildings atmosphere to be controlled with mechanical ventilation heat recovery units creating a healthier environment.
Air-tightness testing is undertaken to determine a buildings air-permeability rating. Air tightness testing is an integral part of Part L of The Building Regulations which requires new buildings to meet specific air-permeability targets.
Achieving improved air tightness is a key factor in building contractors meeting the government's target for reduced carbon emissions and improved energy efficiency.
