Whilst most people are aware about the importance of insulating their roofs, a lot are unaware that 45% of heat can also be lost through the walls of your house. Homes built around or prior to 1930 typically have solid brick walls. Solid wall insulation is an excellent way of preventing energy waste and cutting approximately £450-£500 per year off your fuel bills.
Insulating your home is the most cost effective way of improving the energy efficiency rating of your home. Not only will it make your home warmer, quieter and more comfortable but it will also make it a more attractive investment for a prospective buyer.
As a result of the Government’s drive to reduce CO2 emissions, every household in the UK is entitled to subsidised insulation. Some homes may be eligible to receive it FREE.
North East Soundproofing Solutions are ‘Approved Installers’ of Internal Wall Insulation.
