Solid Wall Insulation
The UK’s housing stock is estimated at approximately 24.5 million dwellings, of that approximately 36% consist of non-cavity wall construction – solid brick, solid stone, pre 1944 timber frame and non-traditional, i.e concrete construction.
Improving the thermal efficiency of solid-wall properties is an area which has massive potential for the future as this is an area where very little work has been done to date. However, more and more individuals are now starting to recognise the advantages of insulating such households and this is an area which is now seeing a real growth with many cost-effective solutions now available.
The Benefits of Solid Wall Insulation
If you live in a home with solid walls, 45% of your heat is escaping through the walls which is costing you money. Insulating the walls will dramatically prevent heat loss in the winter.
What is a solid wall?
9” masonry walls and other non-traditional construction types such as single leaf masonry, >9” walls (e.g. thick stone walls)
Concrete walls, metal or timber panels and some mixed wall types (e.g. Where the ground and first floors are constructed of different materials)
BRE estimate that around 7% of unfilled cavity wall stock cannot receive CWI.
