Like layers of clothing trap air between them and keep it, cavity insulation works in a very similar way. The insulation material creates an ‘air matrix’ and retains heat effectively. Here’s a look at some of the benefits
Energy and Cost Saving
Cavity insulation needs to be executed by professionals and can vary in cost depending on the size and structure of the house but it is definitely quite affordable. The insulation material is inexpensive considering it is polystyrene beads or treated glass fibers. Effective insulation can help to retain heat and reduce on heating bills. By slowing the movement of heat through the walls, a good temperature can be maintained that is both comfortable and good for health.
Reduces Carbon Footprint
For homes that rely on producing heat through gas or electricity, the fuel consumption can leave the environment severely damaged. If heat is escaping because of ineffective insulation or the lack of it, then people will end up using more energy to produce heat. Having cavity insulation in your home will make your home more heat efficient and would help to reduce the carbon footprint.
Quick and Easy Installation
The entire process is very non- invasive and non-disrupting. The work is carried out from the external walls and within a very short period of time. The insulating material is sent in through small air holes drilled on the wall. The polystyrene bead is small enough to be injected in and since the holes are so small they are easy to cover up. The entire process is also executed systematically and professionally.
Prevention of Mold
Condensation on the walls can result in a growth of mold. An insulated cavity wall prevents moisture from passing through the wall and traps it. This means there is minimal chance of mold buildup that could compromise your home and health.
Cavity wall insulation blocks noises from outside from entering your home. It also absorbs the impact of noise from inside the home from being heard by the neighbors. This is great if you require minimal sound interference in the house or a particular room.
Reputable companies use water-resistant, rot-proof expanded polystyrene. Not only is it sustainable but can also be recycled or reused. Once the wall is insulated with EPS, you won’t have to worry about it for a long time which makes it a worthwhile investment.
Wall insulation is a great benefit for your home and your well-being.
