Technical Guidance - MVHR commissioning for residential Passivhaus
The MVHR commissioning protocol is NOT the same for Passivhaus Certification as it is for UK Building Regulations compliance.
In general commissioning should follow the protocol set out in the “Domestic Ventilation Compliance Guide”. However there are additional commissioning requirements for Passivhaus and EnerPHit certification which are summarised in this document.
Prior to any commissioning, familiarity with the standards and the method is very important, as the Passivhaus approach is different to standard methods employed by commissioning agents in the UK.
