Why the external walls of your house need insulation?

Why the external walls of your house need insulation?

It is estimated that poorly insulated houses lose around 30% of their energy through their walls. The external walls of your house need insulation urgently? Yes, if it is a priority for you reducing your bills and your carbon footprint.

This is an annual waste of approximately £300. Surely you can think of other places where you would like to spend that money.

In addition to lower bills and a warmer house, there are other benefits: 

  • Your house will be nicer because its external appearance will be much better.
  • Heavy mould and condensation on the interior walls will disappear. 
  • The neighbours will be jealous and will want to know how much the price of your house has gone up. 
  • You reduce your carbon footprint and your house is more sustainable. 
  • You prolong the life of your house.
  • Wide range of finishes and colours.
  • If you plan to sell it, its market value will rise.
