External & Internal Wall Insulation
On a Solid wall construction upto 45% of a buildings heat loss is through the walls.
External wall insulation (EWI) & Internal wall Insulation (IWI) are methods of improving a buildings thermal performance by reducing the rate heat escapes from a building through Solid Walls & hard to treat cavity walls.
EWI is the most effective at insulating Solid Walls and Hard to treat Cavity walls as the system is applied externally ensuring no cold bridging points at floor levels or wall junctions, effectively wrapping all external walls and internal heat within the building. EWI is finished with a variety of finishes, render & brick cladding. EWI has positive aesthetic values, that, along with improving the rate of heatloss can dramitically improve, modernise and upgrade a buildings aesthetics.
IWI although not theoretically effective as EWI is still a viable and worthy option of improving a building thermal efficiency, if applied correctly by a specialist installer. IWI has benefits when considering Solid Wall treatment to listed or conservation areas where EWI is either not possible due to planning restrictions or not desired.
For either method we always apply full systems with excellent performance ratings and history, all systems are BBA approved and BBA tested. We are trained and approved applicators with each manufacturer & system we install and are also fully approved and certified Green Deal Installers of EWI & IWI systems, to ensure full peace of mind throughout the installation.
