Air Leakage Testing

Build quality is an important part of any build. Air Leakage Testing is required as part of Building Regulations to confirm the results of SAP or SBEM Calculations in a proportion of residential and non-domestic buildings. There are strict targets within building regulations to ensure new properties reach a decent standard of air tightness. 

How Energist can help

Air testing regulations in England are changing.

New requirements will include a 100% testing regime for new dwellings, lowering the maximum target to 8, and introducing pulse testing as an alternative method.

The changes will apply to new sites in England and Wales from June 2022.

Our team of Air Leakage Test Engineers cover sites throughout England and Wales and work closely with our Technical Team at Energist HQ to ensure reports are checked and issued on the same day.
