At Building Compliance Testing, we provide high-quality Ventilation Testing Suffolk needs.Let’s boil it down. What is Ventilation Testing? Why might you need it? In simple terms, this measures the ventilation systems in your building and whether the air flow meets the required standard.You need to know the energy efficiency of any new building. Owners and landlords must legally provide new residents with an Energy Performance Certificate to demonstrate this. Ventilation Testing is another factor to ensure buildings meet requirements, such as during construction.

Extract and Supply Vent Systems

 More recently, tougher regulations mean there is more focus on whether buildings comply. Building Inspectors or Building Control Officers will ask for extract flow-rate testing to demonstrate compliance with Part F of the Building Regulations of all:  

Extract Fan Flow-Rates

Why would these fail?

 The simple answer comes down to poor design, installation or a fan with an inadequate specific fan power (SFP). It all comes down to the required flow rates, location of the fans, length and type of duct run and the exhaust louvre to external area. Come talk to us beforehand and we can help you along the way to ensure compliance.If the test does not meet requirements, the building fails. Therefore, you are required to retest. Resolving the issues is very important to ensure your building remains in standard working order.
