Air tightness is the measure of how much air leakage there is from a building. This is determined by carrying out an airtightness test and the figure obtained from the testing is the air permeability value.

Pulse Background Ventilation Assessment

Air Testing

Gio Property Solutions are qualified with the background ventilation assessment of existing buildings competency certificate and use state of the art Pulse equipment to assess properties. 

You can avoid the unnecessary install of trickle vents and door undercuts where sufficient existing background ventilation is proven. PAS 2035 Compliant. 

We are accredited with the IAA who are the only organisation to have developed a process for background Ventilation and Air Tightness Testing Training with technical input by Build Test Solutions (BTS) that is approved by Trustmark. This approach addresses background ventilation requirements under pathway A and B of PAS 2035 and provides an alternative for pathway C whilst not replacing the airtightness testing requirements

Pulse is a portable, modular compressed air-based system designed specifically to measure air leakage rates and enclosure integrity directly at low pressure; this means the system provides an air change rate measurement that is representative of normal inhabited conditions, helping to improve understanding of energy performance as well as background ventilation.

Blower Door Air Test

Blower Air Testing Air leakage can be measured by pressurising or depressurising the building to see how much air flows in or out of the building at a given pressure.

Air tightness testing, also known as an air leakage, air infiltration or air permeability testing is a test to indicate the cubic metres of air leakage per hour per square metre of external area of the building (m3/hr.m2) – as per Part L of Building Regulations. It applies to every new build dwelling, and a certificate must be held in order to get building control sign-off. Airtightness testing is mandatory for new buildings.

Air testing to achieve satisfactory levels of air tightness became a legal requirement in 2006 in England and Wales, under Part L of the Building Regulations.

Air testing tests the air tightness, permeability and leakage that occurs from a building. The more air tightness, the less energy is being lost, and the lower emission rate a building can obtain.

The airtightness testing process is conducted according to strict guidelines and all testers are accredited testers.
