PART F VENTILATION TESTING
Part F building requirements & home ventilation testing
Approved Document F, otherwise known as Part F, is a UK domestic building regulation that looks to ensure that homes and commercial are able to maintain good indoor air quality and have appropriate ventilation.
In order to ensure that your building is properly ventilated Part F of the building regulations states that you need to verify how practical the design is in terms of the airflow if you have a new dwelling.
This means that you need to measure the requirements for every single dwelling that falls under this part of the code. You will also need to make sure that all of your systems are configured properly as well.
You will need to ensure that you have UKAS equipment and an engineer who understands the various domestic ventilation technologies. If your engineer is not registered, then you will take a penalty of 25% and be applied to you with SAP.
Additionally, you need to ensure that you have all the right ventilation rates, required SAP calculation worksheets, the type of ventilation, the floor plans for every dwelling and the occupant schedule as well.
