airtightness

La ventilation influence le calcul du niveau E dans les réglementations régionales sur la performance énergétique des bâtiments (PEB). La présente Infofiche examine les possibilités de diminution de ce niveau, tant pour le résidentiel que pour le non-résidentiel. Elle s'adresse au responsable du calcul PEB et à l'auteur de projet, mais également aux entrepreneurs concernés par la ventilation afin de les aider à convaincre sur le choix de solutions énergétiquement efficaces.   Sommaire de cette infofiche:

We spend up to 90% of our lives indoors. Yet the air quality inside buildings has been shown to be 2 to 5 times poorer than outdoors. This can also true for modern energy efficient buildings due to increased insulation levels and greater air tightness.

The TightVent Airtightness Associations Committee (TightVent TAAC committee) was launched on September 26, 2012. Its primary goal is to promote reliable testing and reporting procedures.   At present the participants (TAAC members and guests) are from Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the US.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) Residential Diagnostics Database (ResDB) contains blower door measurements and other diagnostic test results of homes in United States. Of these, approximately 134,000 single-family detached homes have sufficient information for the analysis of air leakage in relation to a number of housing characteristics.

This paper presents the new framework for the realisation of reliable pressurisation tests in Belgium and the provisions taken to widen the number of buildings where a valid pressurisation test can be realised. The pressurisation test is described in standards. In Belgium, the measured airtightness performance can be used in the regional Energy Performance (EP) regulations in order to improve the calculated performance. A few years ago, supplementary specifications to the test standard (NBN EN 13829) describing detailed specific elements of the test, were added to the regulations.
