What is an air tightness test?

A pressurisation test involves the sealing off of all chimneys and flues in a residence or dwelling. Next, a fan is set up in the main entrance doorway of the abode to determine how much air flow is needed to sustain an excess pressure of some 50 pascals (Pa).
The pressurisation test ought to be carried out in adherence to BS EN 13929. Air permeability is recorded in the following manner: Cubic metres per hour per square metre of envelope area at 50 pascals (m3/(h.m2) at 50 Pa).

The “envelope” is the area of the floors, walls and ceilings encompassing the internal volume of the test area.

While the processing of data and the production of test results is carried out on bespoke software, any measurements that are carried out must use just calibrated instrumentation, which must be calibrated thereafter annually. Readings that are taken include those for external wind speed, humidity and temperature.
