Air Testing New Build Specialist

Under the 2006 Part LIA Building Regulations Conservation of fuel and power, any new dwelling will be required to undergo an Air Tightness Test.

Lincolnshire Air Testing is registered with the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) to perform tests on new dwellings across the country. Our procedures are carried out in accordance with the guidelines found in the Air Tightness Testing and Measurement Association (ATTMA) Technical Standard.

We insist on being very flexible around site times. and we are happy to test before/after work, lunchtimes, weekends etc. Our informative diagnostic reports are available immediately and we are able to explain and rectify any problems on the day through our use of the most up-to-date equipment.

Our specialist air leakage test equipment will supply air into the building at a variety of flow rates to create a pressure differential between the internal and external envelope. These airflows and differential pressure readings are monitored to produce a known relationship between these readings.

The air temperature inside and outside is also measured, along with the external wind speed and the atmospheric pressure. Once the test is completed a certificate confirming compliance will then be issued to both the developer and local authority. In the event of a building failing to meet the required standard we can identify the cause of the leakage and advise on how best to bring the property to within the limits. We specialise in domestic dwellings but we can give a quote for commercial testing as well.

Accreditation - We are accredited testers of new houses and large extensions. All engineers have been fully trained under BINDT (British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing) and this is to the ATTMA Technical Standard 1 (2006) BS EN1829:2001.

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
