The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

L’objectif de ce document est d’apporter au lecteur des éléments qui lui permettront de se familiariser avec les enjeux et les principes physiques liés à la perméabilité à l’air. Par ailleurs, il constitue une aide à la compréhension des rapports de mesure de perméabilité à l’air de l’enveloppe des bâtiments réalisés par le Centre d’Études Techniques de l’Équipement (CETE). Ce document décrit : - des notions générales sur l’étanchéité à l’air ; - le principe, les méthodes et les instruments de mesure ;

International building legislation is setting stronger and stronger requirements for the energy performance of buildings. An actual example is the impact of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive in the European Union (EPBD) on the national requirements in the Member States. The improved energy performance of buildings can’t be achieved by additional insulation or more effective buildings systems only. A major influence factor on the energy quality is the ventilation technology and also the airtightness of the building envelope.
