If your home was built before 1920 or you live in a non-traditional construction house then External Wall Insulation can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home.
Solid walls or non-traditional houses can lose twice as much heat as cavity-construction properties. On average you will save around £490 per year on energy bills and reduce your CO2 emissions by 1.9t/year (Energy Saving Trust figures, November 2013) By insulating your solid walls it will not only keep the warmth in to save energy, but it can also help reduce condensation inside the house if this is a problem on your external walls.
You can chose from a variety of different colours and finishes, which can be smooth, textured, painted, tiled, paneled or pebble-dashed. All Energysave External Wall Insulation installations come with the Solid Wall Insulation Guarantee Agency (SWIGA). The SWIGA Quality Assurance Framework and Guarantee for solid wall insulation provides additional peace of mind and access to technical expertise in the event of any defect arising in the design, workmanship or materials and is aligned to the Green Deal & Energy Company Obligation (ECO) requirements for a 25 Year guarantee.
The installation time for External Wall Insulation can vary as every house is different. On average an installation will take around 10 days.
You could save up to £460 every year on your energy bills
