What is Cavity Wall Insulation?

If your home was built after 1920 it is likely that you have cavity walls. This means the outside walls are made up of two layers with a gap or cavity in between. Up to a third of household heat can be lost through the walls so insulating them is an excellent way of reducing costs and conserving heat.

Cavity wall insulation is a product that is inserted between the two layers of your walls to help keep the heat in.

You should be able to tell which wall type you have by looking at the brickwork on the outside of your house. If your home has cavity walls, you will only be able to see the long side of the bricks like Fig A.

If your home has solid walls, you will be able to see a pattern showing the long and short side of the bricks like Fig B.

Can your house have Cavity Wall Insulation?

Your home will usually be suitable for cavity wall insulation if:

bullet External walls are cavity walls that are currently unfilled
bullet The cavity is at least 50mm wide
bullet The brickwork of your property is in good condition
bullet Your property is more than 25 years old
bullet The walls are not exposed to driving rain.
   
Are your external walls easily accessible?

When cavity wall insulation is installed, it must be “blown” from the outside of the house into all parts of the wall. The installer must be able to access all parts of the external walls to do this properly. The installer may also need to insert a “cavity barrier” which prevents the installation affecting your neighbours if your external walls are attached to another property, for instance, your home is semi-detached or a terrace.

What if you have damp walls?

If you have any damp patches on any of your internal walls then they should not be insulated until the problem is resolved. It is best to speak to a builder who specialises in damp prevention who should be able to advise you on any repairs that may be needed.

Installing cavity wall insulation

Cavity wall insulation is not something you can do yourself, it must be carried out by a registered installer. The process involves:

bullet Drilling small holes about 22mm wide, at 1 metre intervals across the external walls of your house, through to the cavity space
bullet Specialised equipment is then used to “blow” the insulation through these holes into the cavity
bullet Once the whole wall has been filled, the installer will fill any holes that were made so that they are barely noticeable.
