Smoke Pen Analysis during a retrofit Airtightness Pressure Test by Heat, Space and Light Ltd

We conducted forensic airtightness pressure testing on a recently-renovated London Victorian townhouse, discovering many air leakage issues to be remedied. The results of the depressurisation of the property improved its comfort, energy efficiency and acoustics by up to 30 per cent, and lowered the home’s heating bills for good.
