How does Cavity Wall Insulation work?

Cavity Wall Insulation is used in buildings in which the external walls are made of two separate layers with a single gap or a cavity between them. During the installation of Cavity Wall Insulation a wool-like material is used to fill the gap or cavity. The air trapped in this material works as an insulator preventing the heat from escaping. As a result cavity wall insulation in Scotland has been found to be much more effective than empty cavity walls when it comes to preserving heat and promoting energy efficiency.

How do you know if you have cavity walls?


Before you decide that you want to have Cavity Wall Insulation first you need to know whether your property has cavity walls. One indicator could be the age of your house. Houses with empty cavity walls became popular in the 1920s and were a standard until the mid-1980s, so if your property was built at that time there is a good chance that you have cavity walls.

Another indicator is the brick pattern of your outside walls. If all of the bricks look the same with their long side visible on the outside then you most likely have cavity walls. In comparison, solid walls have bricks in an altering long-short pattern.

If the brick pattern is not visible you can check the thickness of your exterior walls by looking at a doorway or a window. If these are more than 260mm thick you most likely have cavity walls.

If you are not sure if you have cavity walls or if a previous owner has already installed Cavity Wall Insulation you can contact DMS Installers Ltd and ask for a survey.
