What is cavity wall insulation and how is it going to help me save money?

Cavity walls are made of two layers of brick with a gap (or cavity) in-between them. In modern homes, insulation is inserted into the cavity, but in homes built between 1924 and 1982 this was not the case.

This cavity wall insulation is responsible for keeping the cold out, keeping the heat in, and keeping warmth and comfort levels at an optimum in your home. It can be made from foam, bead, or mineral wool – but don’t worry about this. One of our qualified and accredited surveyors will take a look around your property to find out which type is best for you.

What if I don’t think cavity wall insulation is worth it?

If your home doesn’t have cavity wall insulation, your central heating is basically working overtime to generate heat - of which 35% will end up escaping straight through your cavity walls. But at UKEM we can help you to put a stop to this at no cost to you, by signing you up to the UK government’s FREE cavity wall insulation grant scheme.

Apply now. It takes just a minute. We’ll get back to you and take care of the rest.
