Cavity Wall Insulation – The Facts
Insulating your walls is the most effective way to save energy and reduce your energy bills. Up to 30% of heat in your home can be lost through the walls. Your walls have the greatest exposure to the elements.
Improving your wall insulation is a great way to make long-term savings and improve the comfort of your home. You could reduce your heating bill by up to 30%. If you have an ‘F’ rated 3 bedroom house, this could be a saving of up to €600 a year.
If your house has been built within the last 25 years there is a good chance it already has some level of cavity wall insulation but it may not be sufficient and could be improved. Unfortunately the level of cavity wall insulation in many homes is well below the required current standards and you could be still losing heat which is only costing you money.
If your house is older than 25 years your cavity walls may not contain any insulation.
If you want to install insulation or top up your insulation in your cavities, the best solution for you is to install Kingspan Platinum Ecobead insulation into your cavity walls with Finlay Eco Fit. This Eco friendly wall cavity insulation is by far the most efficient and cost effective energy system you can use and is approved by the Irish Agrément board and the British Board of Agrément. Ecobead is guaranteed to sustain its thermal performance over the lifetime of your home.
This newly developed platinum bead (superseding white polystyrene bead) has been introduced to comply with new Building Regulations governing heat loss through walls. The required U-value of 0.27 for a newly built house is easily met by Platinum Ecobead.
