A cost-effective way to save energy
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.
We have different funding pots available if you require Cavity Wall Insulation so we should be able to help if your property is eligible for the work.
If you have an EPC of D, E, F or G and your house has no Gas Central Heating you could apply for a Home Upgrade Grant (HUG). The grant is available to owner-occupiers and private rented tenants. To be eligible you must have a household income of less than £31,000 or live in an eligible Post Codes area.
If cavity Wall Insulation is the only work that you are interested in then the easiest option would be to go through The Connected to Warmth Funding. This funding comes from the National Grid and Affordable Warmth Solutions. There is no contribution required even from Landlords. Just apply through our website and the Team will refer you to Connected to Warmth who will contact you to arrange a survey. A Lancashire based installer will do the work for you and a guarantee will be provided.
You could also have Cavity Wall Insulation through ECO Funding. To be eligible you would need to be in receipt of a Means Tested Benefit or have a household income of less than £31,000. If you qualify because of your income being less than £31,000 we would need to see 3 months of wage slips and also 3 months Bank Statements.
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.
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.
