Cavity Wall Insulation Installers
The majority of homes built after 1920’s will have cavity walls, which are spaces in between masonry (brick) walls. Those spaces can be filled with insulant which stops heat escaping and improves the energy efficiency of your property. It can also save you money on your yearly heating bills and typically pays for itself within five years.
Cavity Wall Insulation Installers small holes at intervals across the outer brickwork of your home before insulating your cavities with either polyurethane foam or mineral wool. This ensures that the insulating material is evenly spread across your external walls, so there are no cold spots or air pockets.
Once the holes are drilled, your installers will pump or blow the chosen insulation material into the walls. The insulant will be sealed to keep it in place and prevent moisture damage.
Cavity Wall Insulation Maintenance: Keeping Your Home Efficient
If you are worried about damp affecting your cavity wall insulation, it is worth asking your installer to drill a small hole in the brickwork and use a borescope to check the wall cavity for any signs of damp. This will be particularly relevant if your house is old and has had damp problems in the past.
When the insulation is installed properly by a registered installer, you will experience significant energy savings and enjoy a warmer, more comfortable home. It is important to choose an installer signed up to a code of practice such as the National Insulation Association or CIGA, so that your installation meets building regulations and offers a 25-year guarantee.
