BSRIA publishes Domestic Ventilation Systems - a guide to measuring airflow rates (BG 46/2022)September 2022

BSRIA is pleased to announce the publication of Domestic Ventilation Systems - a guide to measuring airflow rates (BG 46/2022).

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 & Wales Building Regulations. A new Approved Document F Volume 1, providing guidance on meeting Building Regulations requirements for ventilation in England, was published in 2021 and came into effect on 15th June 2022. A version for use in Wales, providing the same guidance, was published in 2022 and will come into effect on 23rd November 2022.

The third edition of BSRIA’s Domestic Ventilation Systems guide takes into account the revised guidance and also provides more detailed information about equipment calibration.

The guide is available now from the BSRIA Bookshop, with free downloads for BSRIA Members.
