Part F Ventilation Testing
What is Part F Ventilation Testing?
Part F Building Regulations 2010 introduced the requirement to verify practical performance of ventilation in new dwellings against design. This requires validation of airflow measurements for every dwelling constructed under this edition of the Building Regulations as well as ensuring that the system has been configured correctly.
Building Regulation Part L requires buildings to be 'better sealed' and 'more airtight'. In the new Part F 2010 Document, provisions have been designed to ventilate buildings having air permeability down to 3m³/hr/m² at 50 Pa, therefore allowing designers to plan to ‘worst case’ as Building Regulation document Part L allows air permeability up to 10 m³/hr/m²
The purpose of the Building Regulation Part F 2010 - F1 'Means of ventilation' is to ensure that 'adequate means of ventilation is provided for people in the building’, therefore improving the performance of the building and the indoor air quality for occupants of both new and existing dwellings in the UK.
Each component of the ventilation system of the property will be tested individually, for example extraction fans and oven hoods. The equipment is simply placed over the ventilation system and a flow reading is taken on a connected piece of electronic equipment to generate the reading.
