What's wall insultion?
Wall insulation is a simple process that involves packing insulating materials between layers of brick within the walls of your home. Hiring a professional to insulate your walls brings a whole host of benefits, and it only takes a few hours. If you are worried about someone entering your home during the current health crisis, fear not! The work is actually done outside your home on the external walls. So, what exactly are the benefits of wall insulation?
Trap heat in
Did you know that we can lose up to 40% of heat through our walls in the winter? This causes our energy bills to skyrocket. During colder months, we always need to use more energy to keep our homes warm, so we don’t want to be losing nearly half of our heat on poorly insulated walls. While some people feel reassured by the Energy Price Cap, and other government regulations which protect consumers from being overcharged, insulating your walls can significantly reduce your energy bills by saving you lots of energy.
This is one of the most common reasons as to why individuals insulate their walls. It reduces the amount of energy we lose and we can keep our homes warmer for cheaper. This is because the layers of brick trap the heat; so it takes a long time for the room temperature to go down and you can stay warmer. If you have invested in an efficient boiler and water heating system - for example, a combi boiler - you should ensure that you are able to reap all the benefits of your eco-friendly choices by making sure that your home is well insulated.
Trap the heat out
Insulating your walls isn’t just important during colder months, but also during the heat of summer, when you want to keep your home cooler. It will keep the heat where you want it: outside. Especially if you have a conservatory, or even large windows which allow heat to enter easily, you’ll want to make sure that your house doesn’t heat up too much during the summer. Wall insulation stops the inside of your home from warming up too much, caused by trapped heat in your home.
Improved Moisture Control
Walls hate moisture. It causes mould and rot which stain the inside of your walls and look very ugly. Wall insulation stops this from happening! Insulating your walls with a membrane that is resistant to vapor means that there will be less condensation caused by water-based activities that you do on a daily basis, such as showering and washing the dishes.
Be good to the planet!
Wall insulation isn’t just great for your wallet, since you save a lot of money on your energy bills, but the planet will also thank you. Less wasted energy means that you have to generate less heat just to keep your home warm. This also makes for a lower and more responsible carbon footprint. As well as other eco-friendly choices you should be making at home, wall insulation can make sure that you are being good to the planet.
As well as this, insulating your walls can limit the sound you hear at home produced outside, as well as from one room to another. Insulated walls stop the transmission of sound, allowing you to be fully cut off from the outside world. Forget barking dogs and car horns - wall insulation will protect you from any unwanted noise, as well as protecting your neighbours from your loud TV or music.
