Trusted and Accurate Passivhaus Air Tightness Testing in Swanscombe

Passivhaus Air Pressure TestingDeveloped in the 90s in Germany, the passivhaus style of dwelling is 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 world. 

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

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

Working throughout Kent, Swanscombe and the South East, we specialise in providing clients with comprehensive air pressure and leakage 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 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 ascertain and determine the performance and whether your Swanscombe 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 Swanscombe construction or build has been completed, just before it is ready to be occupied, we will conduct set of air 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 work throughout Kent, London and the Home Counties, including Swanscombe. So contact us today to discuss your passivhaus air tightness testing requirements and arrange your free and no obligation quotation at your convenience.
