Cavity wall insulation is a method of insulating a property by filling the gap, or cavity, between the inner and outer walls of a building. This insulation can help to reduce heat loss through the walls and can significantly increase energy efficiency, leading to lower energy bills and a more comfortable living environment.
Types of Material Used for Insulation in UK Homes
There are several types of materials that are commonly used for cavity wall insulation in UK homes. The most common materials include mineral wool, which is made from recycled glass, and expanded polystyrene beads, which are made from recycled plastics. Other materials that can be used include foam insulation, sheep wool, and cellulose insulation, which is made from recycled paper.
Benefits of Cavity Wall Insulation
Cavity wall insulation has several benefits, including:
Increased Energy Efficiency: Cavity wall insulation can help to reduce heat loss through the walls of a property, which can significantly increase energy efficiency.
Lower Energy Bills: With improved energy efficiency, homeowners can expect to see a reduction in their energy bills.
Improved Comfort: Cavity wall insulation can help to regulate the temperature of a property, making it more comfortable to live in.
Reduced Carbon Footprint: By reducing energy consumption, cavity wall insulation can help to lower the carbon footprint of a property.
Energy Savings from Cavity Wall Insulation
The amount of energy savings that can be achieved through cavity wall insulation will depend on a range of factors, including the age and construction of the property, the type of insulation used, and the level of insulation already in place. However, it is estimated that cavity wall insulation can help to save up to 25% on energy bills, which can equate to hundreds of pounds per year.
