Cavity wall insulation
Cavity wall insulation is highly cost effective method of reducing energy consumption saving money and cutting down carbon emissions. A 35% of heat loss in a home is because cavity wall insulation is not installed. Upto 30% of heating bills can be obtained by installing cavity wall insulation, approximately 180 per year. Insulating cavity walls is a technical process and requires special technical skills. Only approved skilled installers can carry out this process.
The cavity wall is injected with insulating material by drilling holes in the external walls approximately 1.5 m apart through the mortar joint. Holes are generally of 22-25 mm diameter and made good after injection. Each hole is injected in turn starting at the bottom. It usually takes “Two” hours to install but the time does depend on the size of the house and other factors such as access.
The drilling process inevitably creates a little dust, which will be cleared at the completion of the job. The insulation combines with the trapped air, and act as a barrier to stop heat from escaping. It works in all seasons by keeping the house warm in the winter and cooler in the summer. The Cavity wall insulation/ installation carry a 25 years of guarantee endorsed by “The Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency – CIGA” and all products installed benefit from the “British Board of Agreement – BBA”.
