Air permeability testing is a requirement that you need to meet when you have a new building. It is a part of the building regulations and it is a very important issue. If you have an air leakage in your home then this will affect the heating levels and it also means that you can’t have the best energy rating either. Air permeability is also known as being air pressure, air tightness and even air leakage and it measures the uncontrolled flow of air as it travels through the cracks and gaps in the building. You will need to have an air permeability test to make sure that your home meets all of the required regulations.

Respiratory conditions are on the rise and as the population gets older, it will help to show you how your footprint is helping to combat the overheating and ever changing climate.
