What can I do if I have problems with my insulation?
Loft insulation is one of the simplest and most cost-effective methods of conserving heat in your Burnley property. It is an effective insulator for at least 40 years and when properly installed, could save you up to £225 per year in energy bills. Generally, loft spaces that are easily accessible and that do not have damp or condensation problems are best suited for loft insulation. If your loft has these issues, they will need to be corrected before insulation can be installed.
Not all Burnley properties are suitable for cavity wall or loft insulation; however most providers conduct a free survey. Homes won’t be suitable if…
you live in a flat and can’t co-ordinate with all the other tenants. Your home is timber or metal-framed, or made from natural stone or concrete. If your home has damp problems, these need to be rectified first.
Up to 35% of heat lost from poorly insulated buildings escapes through the walls. External wall insulation significantly reduces this heat loss, leading to a reduction in annual fuels bills by as much as 25%. External wall insulation systems also protect the building structure, prevent deterioration, and overcome thermal bridging and condensation problems. Newbuild in a newbuild instance ewi systems are the most cost effective way of achieving the current & future thermal performance requirements for the building regulations, achieving an internal environment with low temperature fluctuations and low heating requirements.
Cold homes can cause mould, health problems and can even be fatal. Experts at the world health organisation say up to half of excess winter deaths are caused by cold homes and poor insulation. Insufficient insulation also directly impacts the amount of energy needed to heat your Burnley home, as more heat is lost through the walls. This not only costs you and the government, but costs the planet valuable non-renewable resources.

Cavity wall insulation is easier and cheaper to install than external wall insulation. Ewi is designed only for properties that either a) do not have cavity walls, or b) are ‘hard to treat’ e. G. The cavities are too small to insulate. If your house has cavity walls that can be treated, then you won’t qualify for free external wall insulation. If you’re not sure what type of insulation you need, please get in touch with one of our energy surveyors.
Burnley Home & garden.
Before we begin work we’ll need to erect scaffolding to the outside walls of your home so our installers can work safely and reach the entire wall area. We will ask you to please remove any cars, caravans and garden furniture away from the building. We may also need deal with attached features and move or adjust pipe work, gates and fences, external wall fixtures and satellite dish if you have one. After the preparation work is complete the outer walls of your home will be fitted with insulation board panels, mechanical fixings and adhesive that are over coated silicone finish.
It’s less disruptive, as the installation is carried out externally – although your gas, electricity or water may have to be cut off for a while at some stage, and your garden may take a bit of a battering!
it doesn’t reduce the size of any rooms. It can improve the appearance of your home’s outside walls, as you can choose whatever finish you want – whether smooth, textured, painted, tiled, panelled, pebble-dashed or brick slips. Cladding can be timber panels, shingles, tiles, aluminium panels or brick.
