Approximately 35% of heat loss in the UK is through the outer walls of properties. This can be easily reduced by installing insulation – and you’ll save money on your energy bills for years to come.
Cavity Wall Insulation Installers is a process of filling the space between your home’s outer brick walls with material that inhibits thermal transfer. It is normally installed in new-build homes, but can also be carried out in existing houses. The best insulation for your property is dependent on its location, the size and age of the house, and how many walls it has – but a surveyor will be able to advise you.
Winter-Proofing Your Home: Cavity Wall Insulation Installation
A professional insulation installer will drill small holes in your external walls at strategic intervals and then pump or blow the chosen cavity wall insulation into the gaps. This is usually mineral wool or polystyrene ‘beads’ (both of which can be enhanced with a carbon coating for extra performance). A telescopic lance can be used to reach hard-to-reach areas.
This process is fast, clean and does not require your home to be vacated. It can usually be completed within a day in most homes, and there will not be any mess left behind.
It is important to use an installer who is registered with a body such as the National Insulation Association or Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency CIGA. This ensures that your installation is up to building regulations and gives you the benefit of a 25-year industry backed guarantee.
