Almost one third of all heat in uninsulated homes is lost through the walls and while most homes built after the 1990’s will be properly insulated, homes built before then won’t. Insulation is required to prevent heat escaping through the walls and this will save energy whilst saving you money on your heating bill.
What is Cavity Wall Insulation?
If your home was constructed after the 1920’s, then it will most likely have cavity walls. These external walls are built with two layers and in between these layers is the cavity that can be filled. Our cavity wall installers use special equipment to drill tiny holes in your outside wall and then insulation is blown into the cavity. Polystyrene beads, mineral wool or foam insulation will be used. All our polystyrene beads come with a 25 year CIGA guarantee. Our cavity wall installers will then fill the holes so you will hardly even notice them.
How Long Does Cavity Wall Insulation Take?
Your cavity wall insulation should only take a few hours and will take no longer than a day to complete. Our fully trained installers will provide a professional service with minimal disruption and mess.
The Benefits of Cavity Wall Insulation
It is estimated that around 35% of heat in homes escapes through cavity walls. When your cavity walls are properly insulated, this number can be dramatically reduced to just 10% and this could save you up to £140 per year. In addition, it will also reduce your C02 emissions. Furthermore, you can look forward to reduced condensation in your home if you find that this is an issue with your external walls.
