Internal Wall Insulation (IWI) – Solid Walls

It’s estimated that households with solid wall insulation can make annual savings of up to £400.00. Internal insulation reduces heat loss within your home by installing insulation on all external walls – also known as dry lining. Most properties are suitable for internal wall insulation and due to the speed of installation, it’s straightforward and hassle-free to complete.

Internal wall insulation is done by vapour sealed insulated boards adhered to the internal side of the external wall directly or via a battened frame structure/stud wall, then plastered and skimmed, with skirting boards fitted and electrical components brought flush with the new wall covering. This will add a maximum of 10cm (4inches) to the wall depth.

Cavity Wall Insulation (CWI)

Cavity wall insulation can cut your heating bills by £300.00 annually, and can take as little as 2 hours to complete.

Cavity wall insulation works by filling the cavity space with material that reduces heat loss. To insert the insulation material into the wall cavity, small holes (around 23 millimetres in size) must be drilled in the mortar joints of your walls. For maximum coverage, the holes should be roughly 1.5 meters apart. The installers will then blow the insulation into the cavity using specialized equipment, filling the holes when finished to prevent moisture from seeping into the cavity.

Loft or Room in Roof (RIR) Insulation

Earthwool is rolled out to cover the loft floor or for RIR the walls are treated as above in addition to the pitches in between the roof joists.

Ventilation

To install insulation measures on your property, we must ensure the ventilation system currently in place is adequate. Our retrofit surveyor will assess your current ventilation system during the survey, the project co-ordinator will then inform you of any improvements that may be needed.

We must upgrade your ventilation system (if needed) when we install any energy saving
measures. Ventilation is necessary to help prevent the build-up of indoor pollutants in your home. Poor indoor air quality can lead to symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, and allergic reactions.

Trickle vents on windows and extractor fans running in bathrooms and kitchens can help to drastically improve the air quality in your home and avoid the effects of poor air quality.

Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) First Time Central Heating or Boiler Upgrade to ASHP

A full traditional wet central heating system with pipework and radiators supplied by an ASHP or your current boiler replaced with an ASHP.

An air source heat pump transfers heat from the outside air to water, which heats your rooms via radiators. It can also heat water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps, showers, and baths. Air source heat pumps are one of the most efficient appliances on the market to heat your home.

Heat pumps work at lower temperatures than conventional heating systems, such as a gas or oil boiler. For this reason, it is important that your home is adequately insulated to reduce heat loss. OFGEM are not allowing heat pumps to be installed in properties without adequate insulation.

Solar PV Panels

Slimline, low weight solar panels can be installed on the roof or ground mounted and wired into the property. They are offered alongside installation of an efficient electric heating system. Having solar panels installed will not only reduce your heating bill, but your electricity in general.
