Internal Wall Insulation: Reducing Energy Bills Dramatically
Internal Wall Insulation, also known as solid wall insulation, is an effective way to prevent heat from escaping through the walls, especially if your home is not suitable for cavity fill. This insulation is recommended for homes built before 1920 that do not have a cavity and are solid wall constructed.
According to the Energy Saving Trust (EST), around one-third of heat loss from most homes is through the walls. Having insulation installed, including internal wall insulation, will dramatically reduce this heat loss.
wall insulation is used to insulate solid wall properties by fitting insulation to the inside walls of your home, creating a thermal barrier between the inside of your home and the outdoor, dramatically reducing heat loss. Additionally, can improve the acoustic performance of the external walls within your home.
Having insulation installed can also increase the value of your home by improving the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating. Moreover, this is an excellent cost-effective solution to significantly improve the thermal efficiency of your home, reduce energy bills, and play a vital role in reducing carbon emissions.
How is install Wall Insulation Fitted?
Wall insulation can be quick and easy to install, which minimizes the time that your rooms are out of action. It is installed by building a stud wall filled with insulation material, such as mineral wool fibre. This is a more cost-effective solution than external wall insulation.
An initial survey is carried out by a Retrofit Assessor to check that the wall insulation system is suitable for your home. Enabling works are carried out before the internal wall installation, including the extension of electrical sockets, and removing of radiators and skirting boards.
An insulated stud frame is applied to all exterior-facing walls internally, and insulation batts are installed in all areas within the frame. A vapor barrier is applied and fixed to the studs. Plasterboard is fixed on top of the vapor barrier and prepared for the next stage, which is plastering. The walls are then plastered ready for a decorated finish.
