Specialist Passivhaus Air Tightness Testing Solutions in Folkestone
The passivhaus dwelling is currently the fastest growing energy performance standard in the world. Developed in the 1990s in Germany, these dwellings are designed with the ultimate in thermal performance and energy efficiency in mind.
The aim of this initiative is to develop a property that has an exceptional high thermal performance and energy efficiency, along with incredible heating and air tightness. The high standards of build extend to the standard of less than 0.6 ACH that all Passivhaus dwellings must adhere to, too.
At Tophouse Assessments, we specialise in providing comprehensive air leakage and air pressure testing services at passivhaus dwellings across Kent and Folkestone. All it takes is just one phone call to us at 01634 799115 and we will give you the 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 extensive air pressure testing to ascertain and determine the performance and whether your Folkestone passivhaus dwelling will achieve the primary 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
Just before your Folkestone build or construction is ready to be occupied, but just after it's been completed, we will carry out another set of air tightness and air pressure testing to the rigorous Passivhaus standard. During this stage of testing, we will work out the average of both depressurisation and pressurisation tests and then ensure 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 Folkestone. So contact us today to discuss your passivhaus air tightness testing requirements and arrange your free and no obligation quotation at your convenience.
