Cavity Wall Insulation

More than a third of all heat lost from an uninsulated home escapes through the walls. Installing cavity wall insulation is often one of the most cost-effective measures you can undertake to save energy in your home.

The Green Homes Grant - Local Authority Delivery Scheme is now available to residents across Lancashire and will cover the cost of Cavity Wall Insulation. The scheme is being delivered under CHiL.

Grants of up to £10,000 are available to homeowners to upgrade the energy efficiency of their homes. The grant is available to owner-occupiers, private rented tenants and social housing tenants. To be eligible you must have a household income of less than £30,000 and the property must have a Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F or G.

However a contribution would be required in all instances from a Landlord if it is a rented property. The funding is available until 30th September 2021 so apply now before it runs out!

The Green Homes Grant funding is also available for room in roof and loft insulation measures for Lancashire residents as well as Renewable Heating installations. For more information please look at the Green Homes Grant page.


Types of cavity wall insulation

There are three main types of insulation, fibre, bead and PUR foam. Fibre and bead are the predominant types used subject to suitability based on a technical survey. PUR foam has a broader range of uses including non-standard cavities as well as use in flood risk areas

How it is installed

Cavity wall insulation is injected through the outer wall of your home into the space between the inner and outer leaves of brickwork that make up cavity walls. Where practicable all of the installers working with the CHiL scheme use "Silver Bonded Bead". This product prevents slippage and gives an improved thermal performance. Giving you the peace of mind that your insulation will not cause your property problems in the future.

Reduced Bills

Insulating your cavity walls can help your home to keep heat in; making it feel warmer and more comfortable plus you could save between £90 to £270 per year depending on your property type and size.
