What is Air Tightness Testing?

Have you heard Air Tightness mentioned in terms of your building or home? Maybe you’ve been left pondering with the question, what is Air Tightness Testing? Air tightness testing, also known as air leakage testing or air permeability testing, ultimately establishes the rate at which air leaks out of a building. Air tightness testing has been mandatory since Approved Document L was revised in 2006 and 2010.
