INTERNAL WALL INSULATION 

WHAT IS INTERNAL WALL INSULATION?

 

Internal Wall Insulation involves applying insulation to the inside of the walls in your home in an effort to improve the thermal performance of your house. There are a few ways you can insulate your internal walls but the main ones are through Insulation Boards or Stud Walls. Our team can advise you on the best option.

 

Rigid insulation boards are around 2½ to 4 inches thick, and made of plasterboard backed with insulation material, usually foamed plastic. They’re normally fixed to the wall with ribbons of plastic or adhesive, or fitted to battens if the walls are lumpy and uneven. The installer will then add extra fixings to hold the boards firm, and seal the joints between the boards.

 

Stud walls are made of metal or wooden frames, which are attached to the wall. Once the insulation material has been inserted into the gap between the stud work frame and the wall, the new wall is plastered and can then be painted or wallpapered. Alternatively, it could be covered with rigid insulation boards, making your insulation even more effective and your running costs lower, but further reducing the size of your room.

Internal wall insulation can, however, be disruptive and require the removal and re-fixing of items such as switches, radiators and kitchen units, so you need to be sure it is the best insulation solution for your home.

UNDERFOOR INSULATION

HOW DOES UNDERFLOOR INSULATION WORK?

 

Many older houses with suspended timber floors have big draughts and inadequate floor insulation;

this can cause cold feet as well as higher energy bills. Installing underfloor insulation can address both these problems and give a payback on your investment in 5 years or less.

Insulation projects are often focused on exterior walls and attics. While insulating these areas are important, homeowners can also save money on their heating (and cooling) costs if they insulate

the space under their floors. Underfloor insulation can take a variety of forms. For homes without basements and those with unheated cellars, adding insulation can bring heating costs down.

Owners might also consider insulating basements, foundations, or even the space between the basement and first floor. The type of underfloor insulation that is right for a given home depends on

its design and climate control needs. However, most houses can benefit from added insulation under

the floors of the main living space.

ROOM IN ROOF INSULATION

WHAT IS ROOM IN ROOF INSULATION?

 

Room in Roof Insulation, often called Attic/Roof Space Insulation sounds more complicated than it is. It’s basically insulation of an additional room in the roof area that has access via a staircase and one or more windows installed. Room in Roofs often have no insulation within the walls and as a result, a large amount of heat can be lost in your home.

Roof Space Insulation is made up of thermal boards that are placed over existing plasterboard and fibre insulation which you would find in normal loft insulations. This creates a thermal barrier and helps trap heat inside your home.

ELECTRIC STORAGE HEATERS

Under the government ECO4 scheme, new electric storage heater grants are available to you if you currently have an electric wall room heaters or inefficient storage heater.

Customers with our High Heat Retention Electric Storage Heaters save on average 30% of their heating costs, on top of receiving new HHR storage heaters, valued over £4000, all charges for removal, installation, and aftercare are paid through the scheme so you will not have to pay any costs.

All we need is a few details about you and your residence and our energy consultants can obtain your funding today, it only takes a few simple steps.

FIRST TIME CENTRAL HEATING

First time Central Heating grants are available for the installation of central heating systems into homes which do not have, and have not previously had a central heating system. For the purposes of the ECO Scheme and to qualify for first time central heating grants, the new central heating system to be installed must be a system which provides space heating through a boiler, connected to radiators.

LOFT INSULATION

A quarter of heat is lost through the roof in an uninsulated home. In 2003 in the UK, the energy we used in our homes produced 27 per cent of the carbon dioxide emissions entering the atmosphere.

A typical property could save up to £240 and almost a tonne of Co² each year and with energy bills continuously rising, your savings will only increase with time.

Benefits of loft insulation

Heat rises, so loft insulation traps heat inside your home. It keeps your home warmer when the weather is cold. It also stops heat coming through the roof when the weather warms up, which means your home will stay cooler.

CAVITY WALL INSULATION

About 35% of all heat loss from UK homes takes place through external walls. Most modern homes have twin exterior walls with a narrow cavity between them.

This can be filled with an insulating material by injecting foam or beads into the wall. This restricts any warmth passing between them, reducing the money you spend on heating.

Benefits of free cavity wall insulation

Cavity wall insulation will prevent up to 35% of heat escaping through your walls. In monetary terms, you could be looking at savings of up to £145 a year for heating a typical family home.

GAS BOILERS

Heating accounts for about 60 per cent of what you spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient boiler makes a big difference.

With the Government’s Help to Heat Scheme, you could be eligible for a gas Boiler Grant
