Air Tightness

3d house with arrows of heat loss

Air Tightness and Moisture Control is an important part of any new house build. Building regulations now require a mandatory air tightness test be carried out on all new homes built since 1st July 2008.

The loss of air through gaps and crevices in a new house can be measured by undertaking an Air Tightness test. This test will show areas of heat loss throughout the building. Heat loss from a building makes it less energy efficient, therefore more expensive to maintain.
