Get Financial Help with Solid Wall Insulation
There’s around 7 million homes in the UK that would benefit from solid wall insulation. Only 2% of this figure have been insulated from either the inside or the outside and these households will have seen their heating bills significantly reduced.
Previous schemes have not made a significant impact on this work but the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) now provide the opportunity to tackle these through integrating ECO subsidies and Green Deal Finance.
Recent statistics highlighted that 11% of all recommended measures from Green Deal assessments are solid wall insulation. About twice as much heat escapes through solid walls as does through cavity walls so the savings to householders can be very noticeable.
There is a wide range of solid wall insulation solutions and finishes available to suit different house types. Innovation is moving rapidly and all kinds of finishes can be produced, including replicating detail on period properties.
Solid walls can be insulated externally, internally and hybrid (external and internal in the same property) is also available. The financial benefits of solid wall insulation are around to £400 to £500 per year which is an excellent saving on your heating bill.
Advantages of solid wall insulation:
– Can help with condensation problem.
– Makes your home warm and cosy.
– Reduces fuel bills up to £500.
– Saves up to 45% of heat loss.
– Minimum disruption for the householder.
– Internal wall insulation: quick and easy to install, improves the thermal efficiency.
– External wall insulation: improves appearance of the building.
Marcus Payne, managing director of GES Mechanical, said: “If you live in a home with solid walls, around 45% of your heat is escaping through the walls which is costing you money every single day.
“Having solid wall installation fitted will dramatically prevent heat loss in the winter and save you hundreds of pounds over a year.
“More and more individuals are now starting to recognise the advantages of insulating their households and this is an area which is now seeing a real growth with many cost-effective solutions now available.”
Depending on their personal circumstances, home owners may be able to access ECO contributions toward the cost of insulating their solid walls. This means the savings made will be even more noticeable with decreased utility bills from the outset.
