Background: How Air Tightness Testing Improves EPCs

A strong EPC rating is essential for businesses in today’s commercial market. It can save you money, boost your property value, and ensure regulatory compliance. We understand the challenges businesses face in achieving high EPC ratings – especially when it comes to older buildings with outdated building materials and inefficient systems. The most effective tool that we utilise to help businesses improve their commercial EPC rating is air tightness testing.

Air testing involves using specialised equipment to measure a building’s air permeability, meaning how much air leaks through the building envelope. Standard EPC assessments rely on default values for air permeability and more often that not, these default values are inaccurate. This is a particular problem for older buildings and can negatively impact your building’s EPC score as a result. An air tightness test of the property often achieves a much lower result than the default value provided, consequently enabling a more accurate EPC rating.
