Air Pressure Testing (also knows as Air
Permeability Testing or Airtightness Testing) has proven itself as being a very
effective way of increasing a buildings energy rating, reducing heat loss and
overall running costs of existing buildings and new buildings prior to
completion. With the legislation backing the use of the new technologies to
ensure that houses are built to a high standard Air Pressure testing is now a
common procedure of ensuring the quality of craftsmanship and materials used.
In commercial buildings, especially when the premises are used for storage or
production of medicines, food or computer equipment an Air Permeability test
can be required to ensure fire safety.
