SOLID WALL INSULATION
Insulating solid walls can reduce heating costs considerably, considering typical heating fuel bills make up 85%+ of annual household energy costs this can bring large savings now and in the future as fuel costs continue to rise. Solid walls let through twice as much heat as cavity walls do, so are the main contributer to heat loss in a building. To address this inefficiency Solid walls can be insulated from the inside or the outside.
Along with Energy savings the main motivation for addressing the Solid Wall issue is for general Human Comfort factors. The majority of Solid Wall properties are never heated to the required temperature due to the quick rate of heat loss, so can still feel cold even with the heating on or cool very quickly once the heating is turned off. This becomes especially prudent to properties with modern combi boilers which turn on and off for efficiency.
Internal wall insulation (IWI) is done by fitting rigid insulation boards to the inner face of the wall using numerous modern fixing systems and finishing to a plaster finish.
External wall insulation (EWI) involves fixing a layer of insulation material to the wall, then covering it with a special type of render or cladding. The finish can be smooth, textured, painted, tiled, panelled, pebble-dashed, or finished with brick slips to match the initial brickwork.
