Trusted Passivhaus Air Tightness Testing in West Malling
Passivhaus homes were created in Germany during the 1990s with a focus on maximising energy efficiency and thermal performance. This standard has become increasingly popular globally, as it is now considered the fastest growing benchmark for energy performance.
The objective of this scheme is to construct a structure or dwelling that has the best thermal functionality globally, coupled with remarkable heat preservation and air sealing features. Furthermore, all passivhaus dwellings must satisfy the stringent construction standards of a maximum 0.6 ACH.
Tophouse Assessments is renowned for offering Kent and West Malling residents thorough air pressure and leakage testing services for their passivhaus properties. 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 first phase of repairs, we'll carry out thorough evaluations using air pressure tests to assess your West Malling property's efficacy in achieving a target below 0.6 ACH. Additionally, we'll determine average outcomes for both pressurisation and depressurisation assessments.
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
After the completion of the West Malling construction, we'll conduct air tightness and pressure tests to satisfy Passivhaus requirements. Part L of the Building Regulations mandates us to take both depressurisation and pressurisation test outcomes into account, with building control approval granted upon obtaining an average result.
Based in Chatham, we work throughout Kent, London and the Home Counties, including West Malling. So contact us today to discuss your passivhaus air tightness testing requirements and arrange your free and no obligation quotation at your convenience.
