We perform insulation tasks on a variety of buildings including specialist homes such as the range of Art Deco homes in Lilliput, near Sandbanks in Poole. We have insulated a number of these homes to bring them up to date with modern efficiency. These homes also benefited from a variety of energy saving appliances and efficient heating systems.
Spray foam insulation for underneath your wooden floors works brilliantly to remove draft and hold more warmth within. The open cell foam also allows the wooden floors to breath whilst protecting them from damp. If your homes floors feel cold or you notice a draft coming through them, consider insulating them.
Nearly two thirds of UK homes fail to meet long-term energy efficiency targets, according to data analysed by the BBC.
More than 12 million homes fall below the C grade on Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) graded from A-G.
It means householders spend more on energy bills and pump tonnes more CO2 into the atmosphere than necessary.
The government has said it needs to go “much further and faster” to improve the energy performance of homes.
Experts say retrofit measures are needed because so many homes were built before the year 1990.
Dr Tim Forman, a research academic at the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Sustainable Development, said now only a national project of a scale not seen since World War Two, would be enough to help Great Britain meet its 2050 net zero carbon target, which was signed into law in June 2019.
EPCs measure the efficiency of a house by looking at how well a property is insulated, glazed, or uses alternative measures to reduce energy use.
Homes are given a grade between A and G. The closer to A, the more efficient the home, meaning it should have lower energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint. A grade G is at the other end of the scale. C is just above average.

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Bristol office.
We are now able to serve the Bristol and Bath region with Thermabead wall cavity insulation, Cavity Extractions, Loft insulation and Lapolla Spray foam.
Call our team on 0117 256 5117 to arrange a survey and quotation.
We are performing more and more installs for new homes and extensions. Developers and builders are finding that building inspectors are becoming more ridged on brick ties having their drip points in the centre of the cavity between an layer of insulation board and outer layer. The consequences of this not being the case can be to remove the outer wall and start again.
Some homes we visit has serious issues with their mortar between the bricks. The sis something that needs to be addressed and its a great time to do so after insulation has been added.
Failing to address the issue can lead to dampness, mould or structural issues developing.
Ask us to quote for new pointing along with us being onsite for insulation.
No matter what type of HVAC system you choose for your new home, the better the exterior is insulated, the more efficient your system will be. A geothermal heat pump is very efficient, but the proper R-value and tightness of your home will lower utility bills and increase the life expectancy of your system. Basically, good insulation lessens the workload. The conditioned air produced is better retained and unconditioned outside air has a harder time infiltrating your home.
A very tight and well-insulated home does require some added consideration. The exact type and R-value being installed needs to be relayed to your geothermal installer. This information is critical in determining the proper size of your HVAC equipment. An incorrectly sized unit can lead to all kinds of problems, no matter how well you have insulated.
Also, a very tight home needs to have fresh outside-air introduced into the living environment to maintain healthy indoor-air quality. A good contractor will recommend one of the many methods to do this, from a simple fresh-air skuttle to a heat-recovery ventilator.
The bottom line — if your home has great insulation, your geo system will produce even lower utility costs and generally last longer. Back to the analogy, definitely go with the chocolate sauce and sprinkles!
We are busy with Cavity Wall Insulation Removal presently. There were many under performing products used when the insulation was been done for free through grants and older materials that have degraded that we remove. Some of these are causing damp, others are simply not keeping the home warm. In some cases, after a home has received new windows and doors, or had an extension built, the insulation is lost, leaving voids in the cavity.
In all these cases, we can remove the insulation from the wall cavity and replace it again with Thermabead.
