Airtightness is the process of eliminating all draughts, gaps and air leaks from a building for the purpose of reaching passive home status. This is achieved through the use of airtight membranes, sealants and tapes along with the expertise of professionals who have been working in the passive home sector since its inception.
Airtightness in Passive Homes UK
Passive Home Systems Ltd. has been in operation since 2008 and has a wealth of experience in the airtightness sector. Our goal has always been to provide our customers and clients with the very best, innovative solutions for an energy efficient, airtight home.
When we speak of airtightness, we do so with the interior of the building in mind. The inside of the building is effectively enveloped in an airtight membrane that is sealed to ensure there are no gaps or spaces where air/heat can be lost. Passive House Systems offer a full range of products to achieve this outcome, some of which are listed below:
