Building Regulations 2010
Does your home conform to The Building Regulations 2010? These tables indicate the minimum requirements of ventilation needed to ensure that adequate air quality is provided for people indoors. The occupant’s health could be at risk if these ventilation rates are compromised. The systems are measured in litres per second. Contact York Ventilation Service to arrange a calculation of your ventilation rate.
Extract ventilation; rooms where most water vapour or concentrated pollutants are released, usually by mechanical means such as extract fans.
The best way to ensure adequate ventilation in your home would be to install a Positive Input Ventilation system (PIV). These provide filtered fresh air to dilute and disperse low levels of water vapour and other pollutants and the benefits far outweigh individual extract fans.
