Heat is lost principally through the walls and the roof of the home.
If these areun-insulated then this will cause higher bills for up to 60% of heat loss in your home. Loft insulation and Cavity Wall Insulation is quick, cheap and easy.
An assessment can take up to an hour, depending upon the level of detail you require or the complexity of the works. The assessment involves a technical survey of the home and it will identify the most effective energy saving measures that would benefit you. These are listed in a document called an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
CAVITY WALL INSULATION
Wall Insulation is always the first type of measure to consider when trying to cut your energy costs or carbon emissions. Cavity Wall Insulation is one of the most cost-effective measures.
Installation for a typical home takes about 2-3 hours. All the work normally takes place outside of the home. Holes are drilled in the wall and the insulation injected.
SOLID WALL INSULATION
Solid Wall Insulation can dramatically improve the comfort of an old home and cut fuel costs significantly. External Wall Insulation (EWI) wraps the home in an insulating blanket keeping it cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter, not only improving the energy efficiency but also the aesthetics of your home. EWI for a typical home takes about 2 weeks to complete.
Loft Insulation is one of the most cost-effective measures that helps retain the estimated 25% loft of heat in your home. Installation is normally completed in the same day.
UNDER FLOOR INSULATION
Under-floor Insulation is an effective measure, particularly if you have a basement or crawl space beneath a timber floor. Installation for a typical home takes less than 2 days.
