Cavity Wall Insulation
Cavity Wall Insulation consists of injecting insulation material between the two layers of brick that make up the cavity wall using specialist equipment. It is used to reduce heat loss through a cavity wall by filling the air space, this resulting in substantially reduced heating costs. The materials used to fill your walls are commonly polystyrene, mineral wool or foam and are designed for buildings with brick walls.
It is important that when looking into cavity wall insulation you hire a registered professional; it is not a job that you do yourself. A professional will have all the necessary experience and equipment needed to ensure you have a quick and safe job. They will drill holes in the walls near the cavity, inject the insulation into the cavity and the seal with cement.
Insulation costs vary depending on the size of your home and are one of the cheaper energy-saving measures to have installed. It can be really effective and you should be able to make back installation costs due to the yearly savings on energy bills.
If done properly, cavity wall insulation will result in your home being far more energy-efficient.
