Did you know that solid walls let out twice as much heat as cavity walls. It therefore makes a great deal of sense to insulate them. It is possible to insulate either the inside or outside of your solid wall and each option has its pros and cons.
If your home was constructed before 1920 then there is a high change it was built with solid external walls rather than cavity backed walls. For homes that were made of bricks you can also tell how your home was constructed by checking the thickness of your external walls. You can check the thickness of the homes bricks by measuring them through an external doorway or window. If a wall is less than 10 inches thick, it is probably solid. Stone built houses can, in some cases, have much thicker walls. In most cases these are very rarely cavity walls.
Solid wall insulation costs and savings
I had boiler replaced two weeks ago , everything went smoothly as I have been expecting, engineers came on site spot on time everything boiler is working good , place left tidy , i am impressed with Company Warma , definitely would give 5 star
Don’t often do reviews but felt this warranted one. A little slow getting the fitting date sorted out but once this had been sorted everything was plain sailing from start to finish. Can’t fault the engineer who fitted my combi boiler. Nothing was to much trouble to him, explained everything has he went along. Would recommend without hesitation.
The old boiler and tank were removed and the new condensing boiler fitted by the two installers from XL Heating. They were friendly, informative and tidy, working well as a team for two days.
So far very happy.
