Air pressure testing is a method of measuring and quantifying the air leakage of a building. The test consists of putting a fan contained in a temporary screen into an outside door rebate and pressurizing or depressurizing the building whilst recording the air leakage rates. The external air pressure, wind speed and temperature are measured at the same time, since they have a bearing on the results of the test. Testing the air tightness of existing dwellings can highlight problematic areas which can then be treated cost-effectively to improve the energy efficiency of the dwelling as a whole.
