Residential Ventilation Masterclass

“I found this a really informative and enjoyable course…no hesitation recommending to anyone involved in surveying or specifying in relation to condensation dampness.” (course delegate)

Who is this training course for?

With ever increasing pressures upon homeowners to conserve fuel, insulate and draft proof their homes, the frequency and severity of mould growth and condensation related damp is increasing.  Where it is discovered that a lack of air exchange and ventilation is a contributory factor to a damp problem, it is imperative that the correct solutions are specified.

This unique course developed by the Association, looks in detail at retrofit ventilation systems and the associated industry regulations, and so is suitable for anyone involved in the design and installation of retrofitting fans and mechanical ventilation solutions in existing homes.

Delegates will leave understanding how to design specify ventilation systems that meet the requirements of Part F of the building regulations and evaluate existing systems against the standard. The course will allow surveyors to take the guesswork out of specifying fans and ventilation units.
