Internal Wall Insulation

Internal Wall Insulation

If your home was built before 1920 then Internal Wall Insulation can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home.

Internal Wall Insulation can help overcome planning restrictions or provide a cheaper option than External Wall Insulation.

Benefits

Solid walls or non-traditional houses can lose twice as much heat as cavity-constuction properties.

On average you will save around £490 per year on energy bills and reduce your CO2 emmisions by 1.9t/year (Energy Saving Trust figures, November 2013) By insulating your solid walls it will not only keep the warmth in to save energy, but it can also help reduce condensation inside the house if this is a problem on your external walls.

How it works

Internal Wall Insulation can be installed using two different types of system:

1. Studwork & Mineral Wool
This system is a build-up of thermal studwork and a glass mineral wool insulation. Once fitted, walls are finished with plasterboard, leaving a fresh and clean surface for redecoration - perfect for those looking to redecorate and renovate their homes. The encroachment of internal space is minimal.

2. Insulated Plasterboard
This system uses specially manufactured plasterboard which has insulation qualities adhered to it. The thickness of the insulated plasterboard dictates the performance. This insulated plasterboard can either be screw-fixedor wet-fixed to the existing walls.

Irrespective of the system used in your property, any existing fixings on the external walls will need to be moved before insulating - e.g. electric sockets or radiators. In most cases, Everwarm will do this as part of the service.

Installation Time

The installation time for Internal Wall Insulation can vary as every house is different. On average an installation will take around 5 days.
