Title: Airtightness in UK dwellings

Ref Code: IP1/00
Authors: R Stephen

Abstract1: Adequate ventilation is essential for the health and comfort of building occupants, but excessive ventilation leads to energy waste and sometimes discomfort. Often, the planned ventilation is augmented by unwanted infiltration through air leakage paths in the building envelope; this leads to the concept of 'build tight ventilate right'. Attention has focused on reducing unwanted infiltration by the review of Part L of the Building Regulations, which will lead to reduced energy consumption in buildingsand will interest those involved in design, specification and supervision of construction of new dwellings.
