What is Ventilation Testing?
Ventilation testing in the UK involves evaluating and measuring the effectiveness of a building’s ventilation system to ensure it meets the expected standards of the 2010 Building Regulations. These tests help determine the quantity and quality of air circulating in a building and ensure compliance with local ventilation regulations. Our testing typically includes measuring airflow, identifying potential contaminants, and verifying that the system is properly balanced. Often ventilation testing is conducted alongside air pressure testing to provide a more complete air flow picture.
Do I Need Ventilation Testing?
Part F of the Building Regulations establishes that all new dwellings will need air flow rate testing on their ventilation systems. This is particularly important for new build property developers but can also impact on those redeveloping or extending existing properties.
Tests consider anything from trickle vents to extractor fans.
What is the importance of Ventilation Testing?
Ventilation testing ensures residential properties in the UK meet established legal requirements, which have been fostered to promote occupant health and comfort, but they also encourage an attitude of moisture and mould damage prevention.
The latter occurs where good ventilation can help to regulate temperature and humidity levels. But the former can also help to combat the buildup of harmful pollutants such as Carbon Monoxide and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) which can lead to serious health implications on residents.
