Ensure your building’s energy efficiency rating

When undertaking any new build of a residential development, such as houses or flats, you are required to conform to Scottish Building Standards 2015 Section 6 (Energy) of Air-tightness testing. The Scottish Building Standard states “Air-tightness testing should be carried out on new dwellings to demonstrate that air infiltration rates deliver both the stated design level under this guidance and that the proposed ventilation strategy remains appropriate."

It is stated that buildings be designed to 10 m3/m2.h@50Pa or better, as a guidance an air infiltration rate of 7 m3/m2.h@50Pa is used for the TER calculation.

Ethos Environmental provides BSRIA and ATTMA registered Air Tightness Testing (ATT), accredited to License 1 domestic and non-domestic dwellings (< 4000 m3). We cover all of Scotland and North England providing fast response air tightness testing with swift results after the test.

Technical performance standards

Performance standards are given for new buildings and conversions. Each test must therefore be carried out effectively to ensure proper air tightness values of 10 m3/m2.h@50Pa or better.
