Trusted Passivhaus Air Tightness Testing in Croydon

Air Pressure Testing at a Passivhaus in CroydonPassivhaus dwellings were developed in Germany in the 90s and are designed with the ultimate in thermal performance and energy efficiency in mind. Indeed, the passivhaus is currently the fastest growing energy performance standard across the world.

The purpose of such an initiative is to design and develop a dwelling that has an exceptionally high thermal performance, coupled with incredible and cost effective air tightness and heating. The high standards of build extend to the standard of less than 0.6 ACH that all Passivhaus properties across London and Croydon must adhere to, too. 

At Tophouse Assessments, we specialise in providing Croydon and London clients with extensive air leakage and pressure testing services at their passivhaus dwellings. All it takes is just one phone call to us on 01634 799115 and we will give you the impartial advice and guidance needed to ensure that your property reaches the target goal of 0.6 ACH.

1st Fix Stage

During the very first fix stage, we will conduct comprehensive air pressure testing to ascertain the overall performance and therefore whether your Croydon passivhaus dwelling will achieve the ultimate goal of less than 0.6 ACH. During this initial stage, we will also calculate the average of depressurisation and pressurisation tests.

The volume will need to be fully calculated by the architect to the Passivhaus standard before we arrive for this initial stage.

An Additional set of air pressure testing

When your Croydon or London build has been completed, just before it is ready to be occupied, we will undertake another set of air pressure and tightness testing to the rigorous Passivhaus standard. During this stage of testing, we will work out the average of both pressurisation and depressurisation tests and then make sure that the air leakage complies with Part L of the Building Regulations and satisfies building control.

Based in Chatham, we work throughout Kent, London and the Home Counties, including Croydon. So contact us today to discuss your passivhaus air tightness testing requirements and arrange your free and no obligation quotation at your convenience.
