Properties built prior to 1920 are usually constructed with solid walls. Solid walls allow twice as much heat to escape from the building than cavity walls, but insulation will significantly reduce the amount of heat that the walls let escape.
- Improved levels of comfort. Insulating your solid wall building will provide a much more comfortable working environment by improving the wall's thermal efficiency.
- Fuel bill savings. Insulated buildings require much less energy to maintain a comfortable temperature.
- Reduces condensation and damp.
How it works
Internal wall insulation is achieved by fixing insulation the inside walls of a property. There are a variety of insulation methods available to achieve the desired thermal performance. Once installed, the insulation is then finished with plaster skim and can be decorated as applicable.
With all insulation methods, considerations must be made for preparation and reinstatement of features applicable to your property. For example, with internal wall insulation this would include electrical sockets.
