The very concept of installing a cavity wall insulation is a bright idea indeed. It will make such a big difference to your house in more ways than one. As well as comfort and a much warmer home, an exterior wall with insulation will provide energy efficiency, lower heating bills and keep out the intense heat of those summer months.
On average, installing a cavity wall insulation could save as much as £150 per year on your heating bills. This means it will quickly end up paying for itself and the installation costs.
Installation – Fast, Easy and the very Minimum of Disruption
It sounds like a nightmare to install, but in reality it is far from it. The external walls of all homes are made up of two layers of brickwork. Filling in the gap, or cavity, with insulation is all that is required. Moreover, there is no need to dismantle the wall for the installation team to get into the cavity.
If you are uncertain if your home even has a cavity wall, then found out the when it was built. If it was built before 1920, it will not have a cavity wall; after, then it will have one. As after 1920, a building regulation directive was introduced which insisted all new homes built must have external walls built with a cavity in place.
Choosing an Installation Service
Now that you have decided to go ahead and install a cavity wall insulation, a business that specialises in this type of installation should now be sought. InstaGroup Homes are a specialist cavity wall installation business that operates in the counties of Berkshire, Surrey, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.
A no obligation survey is carried out at your property. A few holes will be drilled into the exterior wall to allow the team to measure the volume of the cavity. This procedure allows InstaGroup Homes to measure how much insulation material will be required for the job. Remember: this part of the survey has no obligation for you to go ahead with the work. All holes will be neatly filled in afterwards and finished off with a coat making it appear as it did before.
Semi-detached properties and various linked buildings will often share a common wall – known as a “party wall”. Insulating a party wall will allow the heat loss to be reduced to a minimum between the two properties.
