Introducing… The ATTMA Domestic Ventilation Commissioning Certification Scheme

Introducing The ATTMA Domestic Ventilation Commissioning Scheme.

ATTMA, the leading authority in building air tightness testing and measurement, is delighted to unveil its ground-breaking Domestic Ventilation Commissioning Certification Scheme (DVCCS) in the United Kingdom. This pioneering initiative is set to transform the way domestic ventilation systems are commissioned, ensuring optimal performance and fostering healthier living environments for homeowners across the nation.

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the impact of indoor air quality on our overall well-being. Properly designed and commissioned domestic ventilation systems play a vital role in maintaining fresh and healthy air circulation within homes. Recognising this crucial need, ATTMA has developed the Domestic Ventilation Commissioning Certification Scheme, a comprehensive certification scheme that sets new standards for excellence in domestic ventilation commissioning.

Key Features and Benefits of the DVCCS:

  1. Quality Assurance: The DVCCS is designed to provide rigorous quality assurance for domestic ventilation commissioning, ensuring that systems are correctly installed and adjusted to deliver optimal performance. This guarantees that homeowners can breathe easy, knowing their indoor air quality is of the highest standard.
  2. Enhanced Energy Efficiency: By adhering to the DVCCS guidelines, ventilation systems will be fine-tuned for maximum energy efficiency. This not only reduces carbon emissions but also helps homeowners save on energy bills, creating a win-win situation for both the environment and their wallets.
  3. Health and Well-being: ATTMA’s DVCCS puts health and well-being at the forefront. The certification scheme ensures that homes have properly functioning ventilation systems, reducing the risk of indoor air pollutants, such as allergens, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and excess humidity. By improving indoor air quality, the DVCCS helps promote healthier living environments for families across the country.
  4. Compliance with Regulations: The DVCCS is fully aligned with industry regulations and best practices, giving homeowners and building professionals peace of mind that their domestic ventilation systems meet all necessary standards. ATTMA’s expertise and reputation as a leading authority in building performance add an additional layer of credibility to the certification scheme.
  5. Lodgement: In true ATTMA Style, ATTMA has updated its Lodgement system, allowing it to record flow rates of all types of fans. Where MEV, dMEV, MVHR and dMVHR systems are used, the flow rates are calculated within the system for the tester, ensuring commissioning is as accurate as can be.
  6. Industry Collaboration and Training: ATTMA encourages collaboration among industry professionals, manufacturers, and suppliers to share knowledge and expertise in the field of domestic ventilation commissioning. The DVCCS also offers a comprehensive training programme through its Approved Training Partners, ensuring that certified professionals have the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver the highest quality commissioning services.

Every homeowner deserves to breathe fresh, clean air in their own homes. With our new scheme, we’re raising the bar to ensure domestic ventilation systems are properly commissioned
