Cavity wall insulation to help reduce heat loss

Insulation is key!

As we all know, it is vital to cut our carbon footprint. Renewable heating sources such as air source heat pumps are an exciting way to do this. However, before we even get to that, we need to ensure our properties have the lowest possible heat demand.

In other words, there’s no point putting in the most efficient heating system if all the heat generated is being wasted. Correctly insulating homes is key to reducing their heat demand, and we’re pleased to see that this is being recognised as the attached article demonstrates.

Around 35% of heat in a property is lost through the walls, and if your property was built between the 1920s and 1990s, there’s a high chance you have an ‘empty’ wall cavity that’s allowing heat to escape.

Cavity wall insulation is a special type of insulation that is injected into the walls of the property to prevent heat escaping as it creates a thermal barrier. This service causes minimal disruption or damage to the property and a full house can be insulated in less than one day.

Cavity wall insulation is a great way to reduce this heat loss. It can reduce your carbon emissions by up to 1,500kg, and save you more than £250 annually. At Green Home Systems we are experts at installing cavity wall insulation, and on advising on the funding available to help you with this. So, give us a call or drop us a customer enquiry to see if we can help you reduce your carbon footprint, and reduce your heating bills.
