Accreditation Service – There are strict statutory rules that must be obeyed when a new building is built or if an existing building is changed. The safety and comfort of the people who will live and work in the building should be considered and many aspects are now being tested. The Standard Procedures Assessment Procedure (SAP) is required to prove Building Regulations Part L compliance for all new build properties & conversions. In addition, energy performance certificates are required for all newly created properties and rental properties.
Air Resistance Test is also required under Part L. Air strict test is a procedure for tracking any unwanted drafts and uncontrolled airflow through the house. Too much air leakage causes heat loss resulting in higher CO2 emissions and higher heating costs. Regulation Section L (Part J in Scotland) was brought in 2006 and stated that the annual CO2 emission level or Emissions Level of Workforce (DER) of completed buildings should not exceed the defined Targeted Emission Level (TER) with reference to similar sized and shaped buildings.
To find a company to test your air, looking again at Google with your location will bring up all possible business possibilities. For example, look for Bournemouth air testing if you are based in Bournemouth or the surrounding area. When contracting a company for these rigorous tests, make sure they are registered with the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) to ensure they are professional, reliable and fully regulated.
