Cavity Wall Insulation

If your home was built after the 1920’s, the chances are that you already have a cavity wall. Cavity walls are made of two layers with a gap also called a cavity between both the walls. Cavity wall insulation helps to fill the gap between two layers thus helping to reduce heat loss. Cavities are usually filled with glass fibre wool or rock wool. There are two types of external wall for a house which are cavity wall & solid wall. Cavity wall insulation is therefore filling the gaps of your external wall with insulation material to reduce the loss of heat.

What to Do Next?

It is first important to identify whether the property requires installation and if so the work can be carried out. To begin with, a survey and a Green Deal Assessment will be carried out on the property and an install date will then be fixed at your convenience. If you already have a Green Deal Report which recommends cavity wall insulation then we can book an installation date and carry out the work accordingly.
