Cavity wall insulation is an effective and simple way to save money on company overheads and improve the energy efficiency of a commercial or public building.
Significantly cutting down heat loss, reducing fuel bills and harmful CO2 emissions, adequate insulation also helps to meet your key environmental targets.
- Improved levels of comfort. An insulated property provides a much more comfortable working environment.
- Fuel bill savings. Insulated homes retain their heat much better and therefore require less heat to maintain a comfortable temperature, which results in a reduction in your fuel bills.
- Contributes to lowering carbon emissions. Your building will require less heat to be sufficiently comfortable, reducing your CO2 emissions.
- Stops sudden temperature changes.
- Can help to reduce condensation
How it works
If your property was built post-1920, it most likely has a cavity wall construction. This means the property's external walls are comprised of two layers with a gap (or cavity) between them. In a typical cavity wall building, 35% of its heat is lost through the walls. Cavity wall insulation prevents this heat loss by filling this gap with insulation.
To fill this gap, an installer would drill small holes (around 22mm in size) at intervals of approximately 1m in the outside walls of your home. With specially designed equipment, the installer then blows insulation into the cavity. Solarwall use insulation made from white mineral wool, which will not settle, crack, burn, transmit water, or deteriorate with age. Once all the insulation is installed, the installer fills the holes in the brickwork, which are barely noticeable.
