Building regulations from April 2006 require that new buildings comply with ‘Part L’. This means that a percentage of new houses need to undergo air tightness testing, air leakage testing and air permeability testing.
Air tightness testing is the procedure to trace any unwanted drafts and uncontrolled airflow through the house. Too much air leakage leads to heat loss resulting in higher C02 emissions. Reducing C02 emissions is the purpose of ‘Part L’ of the new building regulations through air tightness testing, air leakage testing and air permeability testing.
