  18. 18. 18 Making buildings better Why Is Reducing Air Leakage Important? ■ Heating buildings involves burning fossil fuels and producing CO2 emissions ■ CO2 is a greenhouse gas – it contributes to global warming ■ Reduced air leakage, results in reduced heating energy use ■ The purpose of reducing air leakage is to reduce CO2 emissions, reduce heating bills, and improve occupant comfort
  19. 19. 19 Making buildings better BSRIA Compliance Services What is Air Leakage Air leakage is the uncontrolled flow of air through gaps and cracks in the fabric of a building (sometimes referred to as infiltration or draughts). This is not to be confused with ventilation, which is the Designed, controlled flow of air into and out of the building through purpose built ventilators that are required for the comfort and safety of the occupants. Too much air leakage leads to unnecessary heat loss and discomfort to the occupants from cold draughts. It is expressed in m3/(h.m2) @ 50 Pa The worst allowable design air permeability is 10 m3/(h.m2) @ 50 Pa
  20. 20. 20 Making buildings better What causes Air Leakage? ■ Wind blowing against or across a building Wind against the dwelling causes pressure differences between the inside and outside. Air is drawn into the dwelling through gaps on the windward face (infiltration) and leaves the dwelling on the leeward face (exfiltration) ■ Warm air rising within a building (the stack effect) Warm indoor air is more buoyant than colder outside air (buoyant air rises by convection). This rising effect draws in cooler air from outside (infiltration) which is felt as cold draughts inside. The rising effect increases the pressure inside the dwelling which pushes warm air out of cracks and gaps in the envelope (exfiltration). It is worsened when it is very cold outside and warm inside.
  21. 21. 21 Making buildings better BSRIA Compliance Services Air Tightness Testing BSRIA and NHBC are two highly respected names in the Construction / Building Services Sector.

Which was presented in acknowledgement of being the “Best Quality Service Provider”, in relation to the Airtightness Compliance Testing Service provided to Barratt Developments, the largest UK House Builder.
  22. 22. 22 Making buildings better BSRIA Compliance Services Sound Insulation Testing BSRIA provides UKAS accredited sound insulation testing on all types of buildings for compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations in England and Wales and Section 5 of the Scottish Building Standards. Sound Insulation Testing can also gain credits for the Code for Sustainable Homes and EcoHomes environmental assessment schemes. We provide detailed reports of acoustic performance and make practical recommendations for improvements if necessary.
  23. 23. 23 Making buildings better BSRIA Compliance Services Sound Insulation Testing Under Part E of the Building Regulations, a sample of dwellings may have to be tested to demonstrate levels of sound insulation. BSRIA can advise on the correct number of tests required and, where applicable, the required increase in performance. Use BSRIA’s Fully accredited engineers to provide certification for Building Regulations Part E compliance, as their accreditations are recognised / accepted by Building Control
  24. 24. 24 Making buildings better BSRIA Compliance Services VentilationTesting BSRIA tests domestic ventilation systems as required by Part F of the Building Regulations 2010. These tests are required for almost every dwelling - not only for system type 4 (Continuous mechanical balanced system with heat recovery), and type 3 (Continuous mechanical extract); but also for type 1 (Background ventilators and intermittent extract fans). We validate the system , verifying the required air flows and check that it has been commissioned correctly. As required by the Regulations, we use only UKAS calibrated equipment and engineers registered with a competent scheme.
  25. 25. 25 Making buildings better BSRIA Compliance Services VentilationTesting Part F Building Regulations 2010 introduced the requirement to verify practical performance of ventilation in new dwellings against design. This requires validation of airflow measurements for every dwelling constructed under this edition of the Building Regulations as well as ensuring that the system has been configured correctly. The tests must be undertaken using UKAS calibrated equipment and should be conducted by an engineer registered with a competent persons scheme with respect to "domestic ventilation technologies". Where the engineer undertaking the testing is not registered a 25% penalty will be applied within SAP. All BSRIA Compliance engineers have successfully completed the BPEC Domestic Ventilation course.
