WHAT IS CAVITY WALL INSULATION?
Cavity wall insulation is a process that involves the insertion and placement of insulating materials between the layers of your exterior walls. These materials resist the transfer of hot and cold from entering or existing the wall system depending on the season to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Insulating your walls helps in improving your home’s energy efficiency and reducing heating and cooling costs.
WHY CONSIDER WALL CAVITY INJECTION INSULATION?
A staggering 35% of domestic energy is wasted from uninsulated cavity walls, which means that we are consuming energy far in excess of our needs. Injecting insulation into wall cavities is one the most effective energy efficiency measures that can be taken in a home.
Whether your motivations are saving the planet or saving your wallet, there are many advantages to ensuring your walls have enough insulation.
Opting for cavity wall insulation can reduce your dependence on heating systems for your property. This, in turn, reduces your electricity bills and helps you save money.
