Schedule an Air Tightness Test in Glasgow
Assess your building’s air leakage rate and check if it follows the stringent Scottish Building Standards. With cutting-edge equipment, Thermal Image UK Ltd conducts a compliance check and locates air leakage points, which often stem from insulation defects, joints or cracks. Our tests help to improve your structure’s energy efficiency, no matter if your building is as imposing as the People’s Palace or an average city flat.
Thermal Image UK Ltd has three seasoned technicians who complete hundreds of assessments every year. We use calibrated Retrotec equipment to de-pressurise buildings and record air flow measurements.
We can issue Air Permeability Certificates within 24 hours. Expect reliable results that you can feed to your Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) and Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) calculations.
Flats and maisonettes with warrants from May 2011, as well as dwellings with warrants from October 2011, require this type of testing. We also conduct tests on current constructions to uncover structural weaknesses.

The Advantages of Air Tightness Compliance
Following Scottish regulations on air tightness ensures your Glasgow building won’t suffer major energy losses any time soon. A structure with adequate air tightness:
- Minimises heat loss during winter
- Keeps energy expenditure to a minimum. Reduced heat loss means a smaller heating system can meet the building’s heating needs
- Reduces the risk for interstitial condensation
- Reduces its carbon emissions — a national goal for Scotland
- Reduces sound transmission from the outside to the inner dwellings
Additionally, you can rest easy knowing that your building is ventilated adequately. Buildings shouldn’t be too airtight, as air flow is essential in making occupants comfortable.
