Ventilation testing ensures air flow conforms with Part F of The Building Regulations. Compliance is becoming increasingly important as our homes become more airtight to improve energy efficiency, which can compromise air flow.
The main purpose of ventilation is to remove polluted or stagnant air from within a room or building and replace it with fresh air. Improving the standard of construction, increasing insulation and reducing the air leakage creates a higher pollutant level within a property. The increased level of pollutants requires removal or potential harm can come to the building or the occupants. The easiest way of achieving a reduction in pollutants is with an efficient ventilation system.
