Ventilation Testing for your Residential Development

Ventilation testing is carried out so residential developments and conversions can adhere to the Part F of the Building Regulations in England and Wales. It is a process of ensuring that there is a balance among energy efficiency, air tightness, and ventilation to make the environment healthy and conducive for occupation. Prop Cert’s experts work with MHVR (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery) Systems and extractor fans to check the flow rates of fans in your building. Call us so we can book your test today.

Ventilation Testing for your Residential Development

What is Ventilation Testing?

Ventilation is essentially intended to remove stagnant air from the dwelling and replace it with fresh air. It is also used to decrease pollutant levels in the air within the building. It is a means to control condensation that creates an environment where moulds and fungi cannot grow, and dust mites cannot thrive.

Aside from good ventilation simply being a legal requirement, unacceptable ventilation has a lot of drawbacks and inconveniences, too. Poorly ventilated dwellings can be uncomfortable or even dangerous to live in. They will also be costly in both time and money to maintain down the line.

Ductwork is essential to getting a good rating. Poor ductwork can decrease efficiency of the whole system, increase the noise levels, reduce quality of the air, and increase pollution within the dwelling. Our tests will look into your air ducts and give your reliable advice to implement improvements where needed.

When Should You Have Your Development Tested?

  • Code C1 (\'Danger Present\') - Anybody using the faulty installation is at risk. A repair must be performed as soon as possible. A qualified person must ensure the installation will be safe to use moving forward.
  • Code C2 (\'Potentially Dangerous\') - There is no immediate threat but the damage is likely to pose a threat in the future.
  • Code C3 (\'Improvement Recommended\') –The damage may not present an immediate or potential danger but would result in a significantly safer environment if remedied.

Examples of Code C1 include exposed live wires that are accessible to human touch and conductive parts that have become exposed.

Examples of Code C2 include the absence or a reliable earthing, and when a metallic pipe is used for flammable liquids like gases.

Examples of Code C3 include the absence of a \'Safety Electrical Connection - Do Not Remove\' sign, and socket outlets mounted incorrectly.

How long does an assessment take?

A typical EICR assessment takes approximately 1-4 hours, depending on the size of the property and problems encountered.
