What is Air Pressure Testing?
For any new builds, commercial or domestic, it’s compulsory to meet the regulatory standards L1A and L2A for air pressure testing. This is sometimes referred to as air leaking testing, air permeability testing, or air tightness testing. The tests are designed to assess the amount of air leaking through a building’s thermal envelope. Air tightness testing in Manchester is necessary for any building that is due to go on the market, as it makes up a part of SAP calculations that are required by law.
