Vent Testing

Owners of new build homes need ventilation testing to be sure that their new building structures are in compliance with building regulations. Testing the ventilation is meant to ensure that the flow of air in a building meets the standards set on part F of The Building Regulations. The testing is done after the installation of ventilation systems. It takes into account the various aspects of a property’s ventilation plan.

What Is Part F Ventilation Testing?

Part F ventilation demands changes in the legal requirements of buildings since December, 2010. It calls for the commissioning of all fixed mechanical ventilation systems that can be tested and adjusted. The commissioning notice is then to be presented to a Building Control Body. It demands the measurement of air flow rates for mechanical ventilation systems that are put up in new dwelling buildings. Owners of the said buildings are to be given all the information they need concerning ventilation systems and their maintenance requirements.
