What it is…
Since 2006 all new domestic and commercial buildings have been required to be tested for Air Permeability, in order to comply with Part L1 and Part L2 of Building Regulations. This means that for a dwelling to be deemed as habitable and meet Part L1A of the Building Regulations it needs to achieve the standard of air tightness set and be energy efficient.
Since 2010 Part F Building Regulations required developers to verify the performance of ventilation in new dwellings. This requires the validation of the measurement of air flow through mechanical extraction systems for every dwelling constructed as well as ensuring that the system has been commissioned correctly.
