SAVE ASIEPI

The EPBD requires Member States to define building energy performance requirements... but did the Member States take this opportunity to strengthen their existing legislation? Member States are free to define their calculation methods and their requirements... Is it therefore possible to compare requirements across Europe? If yes, are the requirements from one country more severe than those of neighbouring countries?

Although this seems to be true, this is a dangerous generalization. There are many factors that govern airtighness of round ductwork, including roundness (any slight ovality can cause leakage at the joints) and the flatness of the seams at the joints between two ducts (protuding or convex seams can cause point leakages at the joint irrespective of the gasket type).

This is generally not possible. In systems with good airtightness, the leakage flow rates are too small for one to be able to accurately measure the flow rate over the fan.For more information you can check-out the Webevent presentation “Duct System Leakage Testing — Methods, requirements, handing over” by P.G.Schild, available on the website www.asiepi.eu

In general, yes. For more information you can check-out the Information Paper P187 “Duct System Air Leakage — How Scandinavia tackled the problem” by P.G.Schild & J.Railio, on the BUILDUP website
