What is Air Pressure Testing

Everything you want to know about Air Leakage Testing

Air pressure testing is a method of measuring and quantifying the air leakage of a building. The test consists of putting a fan contained in a temporary screen into an outside door rebate and pressurising or depressurising the building whilst recording the air leakage rates. The external air pressure, wind speed and temperature are measured at the same time, since they have a bearing on the results of the test. Part 1LA of the Building Regulations 2006 makes it a legal requirement that new domestic dwellings pass a mandatory air tightness test before being occupied.
