Book an Air Tightness Test in Ayrshire
Ensure compliance with Section 6 of Scottish Building Standards with Thermal Image UK Ltd. With over 10 years of experience in conducting air tightness tests in Ayrshire, our team will measure your building’s air permeability and check if it follows standard building regulations.
Flats and maisonettes with warrants from May 2011 and other dwellings with warrants from October 2011 are required to undergo air tightness testing. We also perform sample tests on current construction in Ayrshire.
Using calibrated Retrotec equipment, we de-pressurise your building and record air flow movement to check air tightness. Should your property fail the test, we can use thermography to locate air leakage points — information you can use for remedial work.
Contact Thermal Image UK Ltd today on 01357 520557 to book a test.
The Advantages of Testing Air Tightness
The foremost benefit of having your building checked is that you have definitive proof that you’re compliant with current regulations.
Your team also contributes to Scotland’s goal of reducing carbon footprint. Uncovering air leakage helps improve energy efficiency, which, in turn, reduces the building’s carbon emissions. Additionally, minimal air leakage means the building can keep energy expenditures down.
Proper air tightness also paves the way for proper ventilation, which reduces the risk for interstitial condensation and creates a comfortable atmosphere for its occupants.
