What is Cavity Wall Insulation?
Cavity wall insulation is used to reduce heat loss through a cavity wall by filling the air space with material that inhibits heat transfer. This immobilises the air within the cavity (air is still the actual insulator), preventing convection, and can substantially reduce heating costs.
Cavity Wall Insulation is installed by drilling a set pattern of holes into the mortar joints on the outside of the property, and insulation is injected into the cavity. The insulation is gravity fed from the bottom up.
Retrofit cavity wall insulation systems are installed as a system (normally installed to the entire property) and typically holds a 25-year guarantee (normally from CIGA - Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency) from the date of installation. Clause 2 of the Guarantee states that altering or disturbing cavity wall insulation system (even in one area of the property) invalidates the guarantee in its entirety leaving the insured without a guarantee therefore, the insured are not left in a pre-loss condition.
Insulation materials itself do not retain heat, it is the air pockets contained within the material that retains heat and this creates a U-Value (typically the lower U-Value rating, the more heat it retains). Should the product be affected by any of the specified perils, the air pockets can become compressed therefore losing its ability to retain heat.
One of our trained Surveyors will attend your home and conduct a free property survey to ensure it is suitable for Cavity Wall Insulation application.
Our Surveyor can discuss the benefits of Cavity Wall Insulation and how it can help to reduce your heating bills by up to 35%, annual savings of at least £275 per year.
We will discuss with you the available funding to fully cover or part cover the installation costs.
We will also discuss the 25-Year Insurance Backed Guarantee that comes with the installation of your new Insulation System.
Once agreed, our office staff will contact you to arrange a suitable installation date to carry out the work.
Upon completion of the installation, CES Northwest will make the application for the funding element and apply for your 25-Year Insurance Backed Guarantee; this should arrive with you no later than 6 weeks from the installation date.
