Performance Building Consultancy

Leaky and draughty buildings are less comfortable to live in, are more costly to heat (and cool) and are potentially less durable.  Poorly designed and constructed homes can cost 30-50% and sometimes more to heat and cool. Airtightness is important as it identifies air leaks/gaps in your building envelope.


Thermography or Infrared image is a way to detect temperatures across the surface of an object, and how those surface temperatures can be influenced by various factors. Eg. moisture evaporation, thermal bridging, insulation levels, etc. It is an excellent, non invasive, fast and safe tool to identify items that warrant further investigation. When used in conjunction with a blower door test, leaks and gaps  can be rectified saving you money on energy bills for heating and cooling.


Blower Door Airtightness Testing

During the build phase, a blower door test is performed to quantify how air tight or leaky your build is.  The ‘Tighter” the building, the lower the energy losses and spend, and the greater the comfort levels. Tests are undertaken after plastering, but prior to fit-out of joinery to detect gaps and air-leaks.
