Trusted Passivhaus Air Tightness Testing in West Malling

Passivhaus Air Pressure Testing  in AshfordDeveloped in Germany in the 1990s, 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 this initiative is to develop a dwelling or property 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 West Malling clients with comprehensive air pressure and air 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 ascertain and determine the performance and whether your West Malling 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 West Malling construction or build has been completed, just before it is ready to be occupied, we will conduct any set of air tightness 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 satisfies building control.

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.
