Cavity Wall Insulation
Cavity wall insulation is the most popular & well known form of insulation. This involves filling the gap between the two walls of a house with an insulating material which massively decreases the amount of heat which escapes through the walls. It also helps create a more even temperature in a building & helps prevent condensation on the walls and ceilings. It also has the added benefit of reducing the amount of heat building up inside a building during hot summer spells.
Loft insulation is another extremely effective & popular form of insulation.
Here strips of fiberglass are laid in the attic & it acts as a blanket, trapping heat rising from the house below. It is a well known fact that the majority of a buildings heat is lost through the attic so loft retrofitting is an extremely important form of insulation.
Also, attics can be insulated using aero board sheets or aero board ‘bubbles’ which is often applied, particularly if the attic is not used regularly.
Solid wall insulation
This involves adding a decorative weather-proof insulating treatment to a buildings outside walls. The thickness of the insulation is between 50 and 100mm and is usually installed where there are severe heating problems or the exterior of the building requires some form of other repair work providing the opportunity of adding insulation.
Timber floors can be insulated by lifting the floorboards and laying mineral wool insulation supported by netting between the joists.
A regular tube sealant, such as silicon, can also be used to fill gaps between floorboards and skirting boards to stop draughts.
Here the contractor simply fills gaps around doors, windows, extractor fans etc and decreases the amount of cold air entering the building. There are several types of materials available from brushes, foams and sealants to strips and shaped rubber or plastic. This is more of a DIY activity however it likely a contractor would undertake this as part of an overall project.
Tanks and pipes insulation
The pipes are insulated with a foam covering that reduces the amount of heat loss. This is similar to a lagging jacket on a domestic boiler.
This is now commonplace in the plumbing trade however many older homes will need to be ‘retrofitted’
