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.

Energy efficiency is a commercial success factor. Not only is it the most direct way to cut energy and consequently costs, but consuming less energy also mitigates climate change and preserves the environment. Energy efficient small & medium enterprises (SMEs) play a vital role in achieving the goals of the EU’s Energy Union Strategy. However, in order to boost SMEs’ intelligent energy use, they need guidance and support.
