Greenbuild Testing Services
Testing is essential if you want to be sure that your building has been built or renovated to the standard you expect.
Testing is also useful for existing houses and other buildings to locate areas of heat loss and to find the causes of draughts.
The testing services offered by Greenbuild allow you to measure and see energy loss in your building, and where required this will backed up by a full report following testing.
- Thermal imaging locates heat loss areas in the fabric of the building. It is also useful for a number of other purposes, such as locating underfloor heating pipes, damp areas, leaks in flat roofs etc.
Thermal imaging is also called Thermography, or an Infra red heat loss survey.
- Blower door testing measures the level of draughtiness, and when used with smoke or thermal imaging, the locations of air infiltration and exfiltration can often be located.
Blower door testing is also called Air Pressure Testing.
- Ventilation rate testing - this testing measures the level of air supply and/or extract from homes. This type of testing is becoming known as 'ventilation validation'.
- BER assessments We offer BER assessments on a much more limited basis, but whatever your BER requirements, please do contact us and we can see if we can help directly, and if not we have a number of trusted colleagues who will be able to undertake the assessment.
BER stands for Building Energy Rating
