CAVITY WALL INSULATION Cavity wall insulation is a specific insulation technique used to reduce heat loss though a cavity wall by filling the air space with porous material. This immobilises the air within the cavity, preventing convection. Air movement inside walls causes heat loss, but cavity wall insulation can easily solve this problem.
If your house was built after 1920, it is likely that its external walls are made of two layers with a gap or cavity between them. Cavity wall insulation fills that gap, keeping the warmth in to save energy. It can also help reduce condensation inside the house if this is a problem on your external walls.
Cavity wall insulation can help you to save money. If you live - for example - into a gas-heated semi-detached house with three bedrooms, cavity wall insulation can provide you an annual saving up to £ 135 on your heating bill. Is cavity wall insulation suitable for your home? Your home can have cavity wall insulation service if its external walls are unfilled and they present a cavity at least 50 mm wide. The masonry and the brickworks of your property have to be in good condition to allow cavity wall insulation.
