Internal Wall Insulation

Internal wall insulation works by fitting rigid insulation boards to the inside of walls, or by installing a stud wall filled up with insulation material. This type of insulation will typically slightly reduce the floor area of any room it is applied in.

Internal Wall Insulation

Internal wall insulation is the application of insulation to the inside of external walls. This type of wall insulation can improve the overall thermal performance of your property, as it can help to retain heat in the winter and keep the property cool in the summer. There are various methods to install internal wall insulation. The most common method involves stud wall insulation; however, internal solid wall insulation is also a popular option. The type of internal insulation you need will depend on the property you have and the aesthetic you hope to achieve.

Our experienced and friendly internal wall insulation installers will come to your property and assess your space, before advising you on the most effective internal wall insulation options for you. Here at Heat Insulation, we have years of experience installing internal wall insulation and have answered thousands of queries.

How do I know if I have solid walls?

If your home was built before the 1920’s the external walls are probably solid and do not have a cavity. One way to tell is to measure the width of the wall by looking at an external wall window or door. If the Brick wall is less than 260 mm then it is likely a solid wall.

Another way to tell is by looking at the pattern of the bricks. If you see a full brick followed by a half brick continuously (like the image on the right) then it is likely a solid wall. If it all full bricks this is likely a cavity wall.

Can I benefit from Internal Wall Insulation?

Internal Wall Insulation is preferable when there is a need to uphold the external appearance of your property. You can benefit from internal wall insulation if your walls are solid and not cavity walling. If your property is made of brick and your bricks alternate in length between long and short, the walls will likely be solid.

Will it cost me?

Internal insulation will typically cost between £4,000 to £16,000 but is wholly dependent on how many rooms are being insulated, and the types of material used to insulate. This type of insulation is traditionally cheaper than external wall insulation as it involves a much lower cost in both materials and labour.
