Are Trickle Vents Required?
For UK building regulations to be met there are certain ventilation requirements. For habitable rooms, such as bedrooms and living rooms, the requirement is 5000mm² equivalent area. For kitchens, utility rooms and bathrooms the requirement is 2500mm² equivalent area.
Often the easiest and most cost efficient way in order to meet these building regulations is to add trickle vents to your windows, which is why they are normally recommended and seen as a requirement. There are other options available but these could be hard and expensive to retrofit to an existing property, but are being used more and more on new builds.
