With the improvements in dwelling airtightness over the past few years, and increased use of systems such as Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR), getting the ventilation right in dwellings has become more critical. In 2010, a requirement for mechanical ventilation air flow rate testing in dwellings was written into the England a Wales Building Regulations. In a workshop in August 2012 hosted by the MBE KTN with the National Measurement Network and the Technology Strategy Board, the measurement of ventilation performance was quoted as the most significant gap and deficiency in building performance measurement. This BSRIA guide was written as a contribution to the resolution of some of these difficulties.This BSRIA guide was written as a contribution to the resolution of some of these difficulties.
