Cavity Wall Insulation
Direct Savings have access to UK government ECO funding grants which allows us to deliver up 100% funded cavity wall insulation to any property which qualifies.
Cavity Wall Heat Loss
Insulating the cavity space in your walls will help you to reduce heat loss and lower your home energy bills more than any other measure. On average a house will lose 35% of its heat through external walls if they are not insulated. This makes it an obvious choice, especially when you consider you can have it done for free through the UK Government's ECO (Energy Company Obligation) funding grant.
A series of small holes (approximately the size of a 10p piece) are drilled through the mortar joints of the outer wall in a pattern which is recommended by the insulation manufacturer. A high performance poly pearl bead insulating product is then applied via an injection process ensuring that the whole cavity is fully filled.
The pattern of the drilled holes and the amount of pressure applied on application ensures that the insulation product is at the correct density throughout the whole cavity.
On completion the installers will fill all drilled holes and use mortar to match your current mortar colour. We use a poly pearl bead - unlike wool or foam this will not cause damp.
