Cavity Wall Insulation
About one third of all heat loss in an uninsulated home escapes through the walls. Heat always escapes from a warm area to a cold one. The colder it is outside, the faster your heat will escape into the winter air.
Most houses built since the 1990s include some form of wall insulation, but if your house is older, it might not be insulated. You may be heating the outside air rather than heating your home, and increasing costs as a result. For a typical house with cavity walls, you could save up to £275 per year in heating bills by installing Cavity Wall Insulation.
Firstly, you need to work out the type of wall you have. Solid walls are not suitable for Cavity Wall Insulation, so you may need to find another solution.

Cavity Wall Insulation - Typical Savings
Homeowners and businesses benefit from huge savings after installing Cavity Wall Insulation in a property. A detached property with cavity wall insulation could save its owners upwards of £275 per year, whilst a semi-detached could save over £155. Flats, bungalows, and mid-terrace properties save between £90 - £120 per year, but the installation costs are much less. Payback time is always less than 4 years, and subsidies are available to help with installation costs.
Cavity Wall Insulation also benefits the environment. A detached property could save 1,200 kg of CO2 per year, and a semi-detached property could save around 600 kg of CO2 per year. Flats, bungalows, and mid-terrace properties save between 370 kg and 440 kg of CO2 per year.
