Wall insulation is the practice of applying a certain material to the exterior or interior of your walls, with the aim of boosting your property’s overall thermal efficiency. But how does wall insulation work?
Well…it all depends on the type of insulating material used, and the method employed during the application process.
For the sake of this particular page we are going to focus on external wall insulation – and our product in particular – Home Logic Wall Insulation.
There are many different options available on the market when it comes to insulating the outside of your home, but we thoroughly believe our product is the best. Here’s why…
Why Consider Wall Insulation?
Up to 25% of your home’s internal heat can be lost through your walls. This is the process in which warm air within your home travels naturally towards the cold air outside through your brickwork.
An uninsulated wall is very bad at preventing this thermal bridging from taking place. This is especially true for buildings made with solid walls.
Cavity walls perform a little better at keeping heat within a home, due to the gap placed between the two layers of brickwork.
However, cavity walls still only have a U-Value of around 1.5 W/m²K, which is not very low at all when compared to the same values of an insulated wall.
During times where energy tariffs are changing and heating bills continue to soar upwards, you simply cannot afford to lose this amount of energy from your home.
Older properties will suffer more than newly-built structures too, so it is incredibly important to have your building inspected regularly to ensure optimum efficiency. External wall insulation will not only boost your home’s thermal quality, it will also prevent moisture gain and your façade from attracting dirt.
