Controlled ventilation is vital to new and converted properties and Part F of the Building Regulations requires it is tested or commissioned prior to completion. If ventilation is not addressed properly, then moisture and other pollutants can significantly damage the property over time and impact on the health of the occupants.
MES provides a range of ventilation services. From initial stage Part F calculations for extract fans and background ventilation (trickle vents), to detailed system designs for Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) and Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR). We also undertake on-site testing and commissioning of ventilation systems. It’s often beneficial to combine ventilation testing or commissioning with an Air Leakage Test (ALT), which saves both time and money.
