Trusted Passivhaus Air Tightness Testing in Westerham
Passivhaus dwellings were developed in the 1990s in Germany and are designed to improve energy efficiency and thermal performance. They are now the fastest growing energy performance standard across the world.
The aim of passivhaus dwellings is to design and develop a property that has a superbly high thermal performance, coupled with incredible air tightness and heating capabilities. 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 Westerham and Kent clients with proven, accurate and effective air leakage and air pressure testing services at their passivhaus dwellings. It takes 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 initial fix stage, we will undertake extensive air leakage testing to ascertain and undertake the performance and whether your Westerham or Kent dwelling will achieve the pinnacle goal of less than 0.6 ACH. During this stage, we will also calculate the average of pressurisation and depressurisation 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
We will carry out another set of air pressure and air tightness testing to the rigorous Passivhaus standard when your Westerham build or construction has been completed, just before it is ready to be occupied. During this testing stage, we will calculate the average of both pressurisation and depressurisation tests and then ensure that the air leakage complies with Part L of the Building Regulations and satisfies building control.
Based in Chatham, we specialise in providing building companies, architects and property designers from across Westerham, Kent and the South East with the very best passivhaus air tightness testing solutions.
