Air Pressure Testing Shropshire

Minimising carbon emissions and energy consumption in homes across the UK

energy efficient air tight houses

The urgent need to reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption in homes across the UK is a major issue of our time. Recognising this, Greenovation provides air pressure testing services to meet the rapidly growing demands of construction industry professionals, architects and Local Authorities in Cheshire, Shropshire and the surrounding areas.

Air Pressure Testing – An Overview

The services we provide are focused on providing professional advice and testing procedures with a view to minimising CO2 emissions and energy ‘leakage’ from domestic and commercial buildings.

  • How we do it

    Every testing exercise is carefully project managed. A building is prepared by creating an ‘envelope’. Air leakage is calculated and other problems are identified. We then prepare a report stating what needs to be done to achieve full compliance and successful certification.

A Full-service Package

Rigorous standards for air permeability testing in new homes, extensions and renovations have been in place in the UK since 2006. Finding suitably qualified testing professionals who can provide the services you need is not always easy. In areas like Shropshire that aren’t close to major population centres, the challenge is even greater.

Fortunately, Greenovation provide a comprehensive air pressure testing package for clients in counties such as Staffordshire and Shropshire from our central base at Nantwich in Cheshire. Our cost-effective services cover everything you’re likely to need as part of a pre-emptive process, or remedial work to be provided by third parties.

  • Cavity Wall Inspections ❯❯

    These are undertaken to detect dampness and to inspect insulation material to ensure it’s doing its job properly.

  • Endoscopic Inspections ❯❯

    We examine cavity walls using a small camera (or ‘endoscope’) to detect previously-installed insulation and to examine the condition of tie-wires holding a cavity wall together.

  • Thermal Imaging ❯❯

    Thermal imaging photos of a building’s exterior walls enable us to record surface temperatures at specific parts of a structure. This indicates where heat is being lost. We can then make recommendations to improve insulation and therefore reduce energy bills.
