Trusted Passivhaus Air Tightness Testing in Larkfield

Passivhaus Air Pressure Testing  in LarkfieldDeveloped in the 1990s in Germany, the passivhaus dwellings are designed with the pinnacle of energy efficiency and thermal performance in mind. In fact, the passivhaus is currently the fastest growing energy performance standard across the globe. 

The purpose of such an initiative is to develop and enhance a dwelling that has an incredibly high thermal performance, coupled with exceptional heating and air tightness.

The high standards of build extend to the standard of less than 0.6 ACH that all Passivhaus properties must adhere to, too. 

At Tophouse Assessments, we specialise in providing Kent and Larkfield clients with comprehensive air pressure and leakage testing services at their passivhaus dwellings. All it takes is 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 initial fix stage, we will conduct comprehensive air pressure testing to determine and identify the performance and whether your Larkfield passivhaus dwelling will achieve the ultimate goal of less than 0.6 ACH. During this 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 Larkfield construction or build has been completed, just before it is ready to be occupied, we will conduct another set of tightness testing and air pressure testing to the rigorous Passivhaus standard. During this testing, we will calculate the average of both depressurisation and pressurisation tests and then ensure that the air leakage complies with Part L of the Building Regulations and satisfied building control.

Based in Chatham, we are ideally located to provide clients from across Kent and the South East, including Larkfield, with the very best passivhaus air tightness testing services. So contact us today to discuss your requirements and arrange your free and no obligation quotation at your convenience.
