Abstract

Uncontrolled air leakage from buildings is a major cause of energy loss and increasing CO2 emissions. It has long been established that airtightness is an essential part of creating a healthy, comfortable, energy efficient living environment. This has

been acknowledged by the relatively recent introduction of airtightness standards to Technical Guidance Documents Part L in the UK and with the introduction of Energy Performance Certification for new buildings. Niall Crosson explains.
