Air Pressure Testing
You will need an Air Pressure Test carried out to identify air leakage within a building; air leakage equates to heat loss and higher energy usage.
It is important to ensure that air leakage is kept to a minimum as a leaky house will be more difficult and costly to heat. APT is a requirement of Part L of Building Regulations for England and Wales and without it you are unable to complete your SBEM calculations.
APT is designed Non-domestic buildings under 500m2 are not required to have an APT but we often advise that it should be carried out as non-testing results in a default score of 15.
The current APT target is five, so it’s in your interests to carry out the test and make the property as marketable as possible.
