Around 5 million homes could benefit from cavity insulation, making them warmer and cheaper to heat. Various grants and schemes are available to help with the cost, making it an excellent investment in your home.
Effective insulation prevents heat from leaving your property through the walls by filling the gap between them with an insulant. Many homes built after the 1920’s have cavities that can be filled, making them more energy efficient. This is one of the most affordable ways to make your home more energy efficient, saving you money on your heating costs for years to come.
It’s important that your insulation is dry, to avoid damp, condensation and mould. If yours is damaged or wet, it’s important to have it removed and replaced as quickly as possible to ensure the prevention of heat loss.
Your installer will drill a series of small holes in the outside of your external brick walls and then blow the insulation material, which is typically mineral wool or polystyrene beads into the gaps using special equipment. After the installation is complete, the holes are filled in with mortar.
