Minimizing or eliminating air leakage is a legal necessity when constructing new domestic or commercial buildings. However, this means that new buildings need to undergo air tightness testing.
Airtightness testing is a procedure to trace any air permeability and uncontrolled airflow through a house or building. Therefore, too much leakage means heat loss, thus higher CO2 emissions. While Part L of the Scottish Buildings Regulations obligates new buildings to reduce CO2 emissions, it is necessary you meet the standards.
