Is your home Council Tax Band A, B, C or D? Great! You’re entitled to FREE insulation
Cavity Wall Insulation
Around 33%* of a home’s heat is lost through uninsulated cavity walls. By having insulation professionally installed into the space between your home’s two layers of brick, you will save energy and reduce your heating bills.
You can expect to save around £300* per year on your energy bill (based on a gas-heated semi-detached home) rising to £520* per year (based on a gas-heated detached home).
Save up to £520 per year*
Cut your energy use
Maintain a comfy temperature
Carbon savings of up to 1100kg CO2/year*

Save energy with cavity wall insulation
Our team can insulate the walls of an average 3 bed-semi in just a few hours. The team will inject EPS beads into the cavity from the outside of your home via small, carefully drilled holes which are made good with cement afterwards. Afterwards, less heat can escape from your home through the walls.

Costs & funding
As an accredited installer, we have access to various pots of funding that can make insulation FREE or very low-cost for you. The funding comes from places such as energy companies, local authorities and government. We’ll check what you’re entitled to when you contact us.
For example, currently our Connected for Warmth scheme, in partnership with National Grid, means anyone living in a property in Council Tax Band A-D qualifies for FREE cavity wall and/or loft insulation.
Getting cavity wall insulation
Get in touch with us, even if you’re unsure of your wall type, and we’ll advise over the phone or by email. Then we’ll book you a FREE home visit for a Home Surveyor to come and take a look at your property and confirm suitability, do a few checks and take some measurements.
The insulation will be fitted shortly after by one of our friendly technician crews.

Identifying your wall type
Homes built before 1930
Likely to have solid walls
If your home has solid walls, we cannot insulate them with cavity wall insulation. Instead you need to consider another way to make them more energy efficient, such as external wall insulation.
Homes built between 1945 and 1990
Likely to have cavity walls that were constructed with little or no insulation
Your home is likely to be perfect for cavity wall insulation and you’ll feel a big difference; you’ll feel warmer and it will be less expensive to heat your home.
Homes built after 1990
Likely to have cavity walls that were constructed with some insulation but not enough for today’s standards
If you feel your home is hard to keep warm, has cold spots or suffers from damp, you may benefit from having your cavity walls inspected to see if the insulation is up to today’s standards.
As well us using the age of your property to determine its wall type, you can also take a look at the brick pattern.
The bricks will have an alternating pattern so that some bricks are laid lengthways and some bricks are laid widthways, showing the smaller ends.
The bricks will have an even pattern with all the bricks laid lengthways.

Cavity Wall Insulation FAQs
A cavity wall is a construction type whereby a wall is constructed of two layers of a brick with an air gap (or cavity) between them. It is how homes have typically been constructed in the UK since the 1930s.
Cavity wall insulation is when insulation is injected into the air gap (or ‘cavity’) between the two layers of bricks that make up a cavity wall. The insulation creates a thermal barrier, preventing excessive heat loss through a home’s walls.
Homes should be cavity wall insulated, if possible, to help the occupants reduce their energy usage and therefore lower their energy bills.
A typical three-bed semi can be installed in around half a day.
The installation crew need good access to your home’s exterior walls so please move flower pots, hanging baskets and other obstructions.
Cavity wall insulation can save up to £520 per year* on a gas-heated, detached home’s energy bills.
We install EvoBead, manufactured by our sister company so we are 100% sure of its exceptional insulating properties and performance.
It depends on a range of factors so it is hard to give a figure. Plus, we often have access to funding that can make cavity wall insulation free or partially funded, depending on your circumstances. Our Home Energy Surveyor will advise on this during their home visit.
Yes, sometimes we can install cavity wall insulation completely free of charge, depending on the funding that is available at the time, your circumstances and your property type.
