Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets.
Gain control of the air in your building and gain control of your costs and air quality.
With approximately 30% of your building’s energy usage utilized to compensate for air leakage, the need to control the air entering and leaving your building is more than an air quality issue, it is also a cost issue. By making a building more air tight, and increasing the performance of a building, less of the conditioned air is lost through enclosures reducing the load on the mechanical systems. This not only puts less stress on a system, but also allows for a more efficiently sized system.
With Intertek’s Whole Building Air Barrier Testing, our customers can confirm the building’s design intent is met by quantifying the air leakage of a completed building. With a staff trained and certified in Whole Building Air Barrier Testing and Infrared Thermography, we have the experience and knowledge to perform the appropriate testing helping our customers meet their required standards. Additionally, because the testing is completed towards the end of a building’s construction, it makes leaky systems difficult to repair. To assist with this, Intertek’s Building Sciences staff can provide additional assistance throughout the design and construction phase increasing the potential to achieve a passing test in the end.
