Designing for Sustainability

Why do you need Ventilation Testing?

As buildings become more energy-efficient and better insulated, the amount of uncontrolled air movement is reduced. This can lead to problems with ventilation, which ventilation testing aims to identify. If ventilation is inadequate it can lead to a range of potential problems, such as excessive condensation, dampness and mould. This can lead to structural problems in the building itself as well as health problems for the occupants.

The experienced survey team at FOCUS 360 Energy can carry out a thorough ventilation test to ensure that your new build property has adequate ventilation.

Ventilation Testing is a requirement for all new build developments under Part F of the Building Regulations.  It validates air flow measurements for new properties and ensures that the system has been configured correctly.

This means all centralised and decentralised mechanical ventilation systems and extract fans should have their flow rates tested, with the results submitted to building control as part of building regulations sign off. Testing should be carried out using UKAS calibrated equipment.
