If your property is built with cavity walls then it is worth considering getting it insulated. It stops heat escaping through the walls allowing your heating to work more efficiently and saving money on energy bills all year round.
It is very important to use qualified Cavity Wall Insulation Installers, like Furbnow, so that the job is done properly and meets the required standards. This is important as a poorly installed home insulation could lead to damp and mould problems in the future.
When a qualified installer comes to your property they will first carry out an assessment to ensure that your home is suitable for cavity wall insulation. This will also highlight any pre-existing issues that need to be addressed before the installation can go ahead.
Cavity Wall Insulation for Soundproofing: Peace and Quiet at Home
Once the survey is complete they will drill small holes in your wall to allow them to pump or blow the insulating material into the cavity walls. There are a few different types of insulation materials that can be used, these include mineral wool, polystyrene beads and polyurethane foam. The insulating material is then sealed into the walls to prevent heat loss through them.
Having your home correctly insulated will help you reduce the amount of carbon emissions that are produced in the UK each year, as well as keeping you warmer and saving you money on your energy bills. In fact if every home in the UK had cavity wall insulation we would cut CO2 (the gas that speeds up climate change) by around 7 million tonnes a year!
