Ventilation Extract Testing & Commissioning

Ventilation extract testing or Part F vent testing is carried out on a dwelling’s ventilation systems. To confirm the installed systems are achieving the required flow rates as required by Part F of the building regulations. 

What is a ventilation extract test?

A test involves one of our accredited team of BPEC testing engineers to test the installed extractor fans within the dwelling using specialist UKAS calibrated testing equipment and measure the flow rates of each of the fans. The testing is usually carried out during the same visit as the air permeability making it more cost effective. The test results are confirmed onsite and certificates are issued same day.

Why test?

With a greater need to lower the amount of uncontrolled air movement, dwellings are becoming ever increasingly air tight. This means that it is very important that the intended air movement within a dwelling is actually achieved. As a result of this, 2010 Part F of the building regulations recognised the need to test extract fans to ensure that they are achieving the correct flow rates. Since then we have been working with large and small developers to help them achieve this requirement.

Our experienced engineers are able to assist you before, during and after the ventilation extract test. Should an extract fan test fail our engineers can assist you to rectify the problem or suggest relevant remedial work to resolve the problem.
