As Energia’s trusted energy services partner, we have insulated thousands of homes across Ireland. Take a quick look at the video below to get a visual understanding of the process:
If you have an older home than you are definitely losing excess heat through your external walls. In fact, as methods have evolved so quickly over the last few years, most homes in Ireland will benefit from upgraded insulation in walls. According to SEAI up to 30% of your heat could be lost through your walls. Improving this will reduce your energy bills and cut down on your greenhouse gas emissions.
We offer a range of options at various price points:
Internal Dry Lining Wall Insulation
Internal insulation (or Dry Lining) involves attaching extra insulation to the inside of a wall. A thick layer of material is attached to the inside of external walls. This is then finished with plasterboard. Plasterboard wall insulation is very effective and a clean job. You can paint over it and it will add a freshness aesthetically, aswell as improving the energy efficiency of your home. This solution is cheaper than external options and if you are redecorating it can be included in the project with a minimum amount of hassle. House 2 Home uses Kingspan Kooltherm K17, which complies with the TGD part L Building Regulations
Cavity Wall Insulation
The external walls of your home are likely constructed as Cavity Walls. This means that there are two rows of brick or concrete with a hollow space in between them. Cavity wall insulation is a very cost effective and clean method of reducing heat loss. A polystyrene material, in bead form, is injected into the cavity of your walls and sealed with a binding agent. The installation process for this solution is fast and painless, which is one of the reasons why it’s very popular. If you don’t know whether you have a cavity wall contact us today to arrange a visit from one of our assessor who will advise you on the best solution for your home.
External Wall Insulation
External wall insulation is the most expensive solution. It involves coating the outer layer of your walls with materials such as polystyrene slabs . This is is then covered and made weather proof with a unique render. External wall insulation is very effective but usually only recommended for big deep retrofit jobs.
A great way to improve your energy rating and reduce heat loss from your home is to insulate your attic. SEAI estimate that up to 30% of rising heat can be lost through your attic. To combat this it is imperative that you optimize this space. 300mm Rockwool is the current standard for attic insulation. This is something that our expert engineers can install in your home very quickly.
House 2 Home also offers spray foam insulation which is a cost effective premium performance rigid thermostat material. One key benefit of the spray foam option is its ability to reach into small areas and fill most voids. We usually recommend this for attic spaces that have been converted into spare rooms.
How often should attic insulation be changed ?
Your attic insulation should be changed as often as new standards demand. If you have 100mm Rockwool in your attic currently this will need to be upgraded to 300mm as soon as possible. However if you already have 300mm or you install it, this will last for 10-15 years if it is left undisturbed. Our assessors can provide you with professional advise on what solution is best for you.
Which insulation is best for the attic?
Rockwool 300mm insulation is the current optimum industry standard for attic insulation. If you have hard to reach areas in your attic this can also be supplemented
