The aim is to make buildings more energy efficient and reduce carbon output by setting an overall emission rate of buildings.

Why air tightness testing?
Air Tightness Testing is an assessment of the air permeability, tightness or leakage of a building; the higher the level of air tightness the greater the energy efficiency of the building. Air tightness testing can demonstrate the building’s ability to retain conditioned air and loss of conditioned air through the building structure, It also maximises the retention and minimises the loss of conditioned air.
