Q50 provides a range of energy efficiency services to the residential and commercial property sector.
These include Building Energy Rating (BER), Blower Door Testing and Thermal Imaging Surveys.
We provide a full suite of air leakage measurement and detection services.
We will find the source of air leaks so that you can plug them before the building is finished. We can then test the envelope in accordance with the European Standard EN13829 to ensure that your new home complies with the current Building Regulations.
We an help you to locate and record areas of your building that have insufficient or missing insulation - in walls and roofs.
Building Thermography can also be used to identily and record thermal bridges at key junctions in the external envelope - such as between the roof and the external wall or the floor and the wall.
Infrared Imaging is great for identifying sources of draughts around window and door openings. The captured image clearly shows the extent and source of the leak.
Q50 is a Registered Ventilation Validator under the NSAI ventilation validation scheme.
The 2019 revision of the Part F (Ventilation) of the Building Regulations has mandated that ventilation systems be checked by an independent third party for flow rates after commissioning.
For consumers, the benefits of Ventilation Validation are immense in terms of energy efficiency of the dwelling improvement and indoor air quality improvement, providing enhanced comfort and health benefits to the occupant.
