What is an air tightness test?

A pressurisation test of an abode is performed through the installation of a fan at the main entranceway, and the sealing of all flues and chimneys. This is necessary to determine how much air flow is needed for an excess air pressure of 50 pascals (Pa). The standard BS EN 13929 outlines the framework around which these pressurisation tests ought to be carried out. The cubic metres per hour per square metre of envelope area at 50 pascals (m3/(h.m2) at 50 Pa) is the scientific way in which air pressure testing Oswestry y is measured.

The envelope area literally envelops the internal volume, so it constitutes the walls, ceilings and floors of the test area. Readings that include temperature, external wind and humidity, which require calibrated instrumentation – and said instruments must be calibrated annually following commissioning. The software used to draw up the test results after data analysis is bespoke.
