Four Benefits of Solid Wall Insulation
If you live in a home with uninsulated solid walls, up to 45% of your heat is escaping through the wall. This can lead to serious issues like damp and condensation, not to mention a home that’s cold and uncomfortable. Luckily, the thermal efficiency of solid walls can be improved with solid wall insulation, but is it worth it? Solid walls can be insulated from either the inside or the outside and there are many benefits to be gained. You may even be eligible for a grant to cover the cost of solid wall insulation, so read on to find out more.
Reduced heat loss
Solid wall insulation improves the thermal efficiency of a building, dramatically reducing heat loss. As stated, up to 45% of heat can be lost through your walls but solid wall insulation will significantly reduce this.
Lower heating bills
If you’re losing 45% of your heat through the walls, your heating system will have to work harder to maintain a stable temperature. This can result in heating bills which are much higher than they need to be, so add solid wall insulation if you want to save money! You can expect to see a noticeable reduction in your heating bills so it’s well worth the investment.
Reduced noise levels
Noise pollution can be irritating at best and bad for our health at worst. Solid wall insulation can significantly reduce noise pollution from outside, including traffic noise, neighbours and noise from nearby businesses. If you struggle to sleep or are particularly sensitive to noise, solid wall insulation could be a big improvement.
A more comfortable home
Heat loss can lead to cold, damp conditions and no one wants to live in an uncomfortable home. Damp can lead to peeling paint, excess condensation and a range of health issues, but adding solid wall insulation will ensure that your home is comfortable, warm and dry. It also helps to regulate the temperature, so your home will be cooler in summer and warmer in the winter.
