Free Cavity Wall Insulation
Free cavity wall insulation grants
Free cavity wall insulation has been re-introduced in the UK as part of a new home energy saving government insulation grant scheme. Currently cavity wall insulation is free for everyone in the UK for a limited period.
The cavity wall insulation that is installed as part of the free insulation grant scheme is not foam or wet it is a man made fibre similar to loft insulation, but finely chopped so as to fit in between your walls. This acts as a protective layer against the cold. It is moisture proof and cannot pass dampness from wall to wall via the cavity.
Installing wall insulation is like putting a coat on your house. The insulation keeps the heat in, meaning that you can have your central heating on for less time, or turn in down to a lower level. This costs you less in gas / fuel bills and reduces harmful emissions which are released into the environment. Cavity wall insulation also keeps your home cooler in the summer.
