How to Add Insulation to Finished Walls

Add Insulation to Finished Walls

Insulation of any kind is guaranteed to improve your comfort, and save you money. Not all homes have been constructed to be energy efficient though.

Unless you have an energy efficient home, you can improve efficiency and reduce your energy bills by adding insulation.

Remember that your older homes have considerably less insulation than the modern built homes, but you can add insulation to any home with confidence and see it paying for itself within a few short years.

So with that in mind, we are going to show you how to add insulation to finished walls…

It’s All In The Preparation…

Before you decide to add insulation, you need to identify how much insulation your home already has, and where the insulation is located.

If you have an energy assessment carried out by a qualified home energy auditor, then you will be able to know instantly where the insulation is recorded, as an insulation check is part of their routine energy assessment.

This audit can also help you ascertain specific places in your property where air leaks occur, and which areas will need sealing to reduce the risk of losing valuable warmth from your home during the colder, Winter months.

External Wall Insulation – A Wise Investment

The decision to insulate the exterior of your property is a good investment for a number of reasons. The main benefit is that you reduce the amount of heat loss you experience during the cooler periods of the year.

It keeps the heat in, and the cold out during the long, Winter months; it also keeps the cool air in, and the warm air out during Summer.

You will find that wet materials are a better thermal conductor, as they transfer the heat effectively. So it improves thermal conductivity when the walls become wet with rain. The drier your brickwork, the less heat you will lose, and, as a result, the more money you will save in the long run.

Cavity Walls VS Solid Walls and Internal VS External
