Four Benefits of Solid Wall Insulation

All Posts

Updated: Jan 10

If you live in a home with uninsulated solid walls, up to 45% of your heat is escaping through the wall. This can lead to serious issues like damp and condensation, not to mention a home that’s cold and uncomfortable. Luckily, the thermal efficiency of solid walls can be improved with solid wall insulation, but is it worth it? Solid walls can be insulated from either the inside or the outside and there are many benefits to be gained. You may even be eligible for a grant to cover the cost of solid wall insulation, so read on to find out more.

Reduced heat loss

Solid wall insulation improves the thermal efficiency of a building, dramatically reducing heat loss. As stated, up to 45% of heat can be lost through your walls but solid wall insulation will significantly reduce this.

Lower heating bills

If you’re losing 45% of your heat through the walls, your heating system will have to work harder to maintain a stable temperature. This can result in heating bills which are much higher than they need to be, so add solid wall insulation if you want to save money! You can expect to see a noticeable reduction in your heating bills so it’s well worth the investment.

Reduced noise levels

Noise pollution can be irritating at best and bad for our health at worst. Solid wall insulation can significantly reduce noise pollution from outside, including traffic noise, neighbours and noise from nearby businesses. If you struggle to sleep or are particularly sensitive to noise, solid wall insulation could be a big improvement.

A more comfortable home

Heat loss can lead to cold, damp conditions and no one wants to live in an uncomfortable home. Damp can lead to peeling paint, excess condensation and a range of health issues, but adding solid wall insulation will ensure that your home is comfortable, warm and dry. It also helps to regulate the temperature, so your home will be cooler in summer and warmer in the winter.

Don't worry, whilst your property doesn't have a current Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) we can still check your eligibility by taking some more details from you. Just click next button to proceed.

Your rating score is:

Due to the EPC rating of your property, your home's rating is unlikely to be improved by the measures we install. We are sorry that we cannot help you further in this instance.
The lower your home's energy efficiency rating, the more money the government make available for you to improve it.
Unfortunately ECO4 funding is not currently available directly to the occupant of Social housing.
