Our procedure for an air tightness test in Leeds, begins with us emptying the dwelling and closing all the openings. Then, we’ll install air testing equipment—essentially big fans—by placing it in a doorway or other type of external opening. At this point, we can take numerous air pressure readings to provide a final score of air tightness.
It normally takes us around 45 minutes to complete air tests. Sometimes it’s less, but it’s very rarely more.
