Insulation

Insulation methods are designed to keep your home at a desired temperature all year round. Protecting it against the cold in the Winter and excess heat in the Summer.

A well insulated house is very energy efficient, reduces your household bills and cuts your greenhouse gas emissions.

Internal Wall Insulation

Internal wall insulation (IWI) is done inside your home by building a stud wall or by building a stud wall filled with insulations material such a mineral wall insulation. Here at Wizard Eco we use the SWIP system this comes with a 25 year manufacturers guarantee and is BBA certified.

This form of insulation is suitable for any property type and installation is very easy. This keeps the temperature in your home consistent all year round and therefore reduces the need to turn up that costly heating. Internal wall insulation is a viable solution for those wanting to boost their home’s energy efficiency without changing the exterior appearance. This work can also be done room-by-room minimising any household disruption.

Internal Wall Insulation
External Wall Insulation

External Wall Insulation

External wall insulation (EWI) is the application of insulation fixed to the outside of an existing wall. This layer will be finished either with a coat of render or with external cladding to protect it from the elements. Here at Wizard Eco we use the Johnsons or Wetherby system these are both BBA certified and also come with a 25 year manufacturers guarantee.

EWI protects the building’s structure and improves weatherproofing. The finished render is durable, breathable and aesthetically pleasing with the best bit being you can pick your colour.

Did you know? – Nearly 25% of your homes heat is lost through poorly insulated roof space.”

Cavity Wall Insulation

Cavity wall insulation is the process of filling your homes vacant cavity with the Evobead system. This will instantly increase the heat retention of your home. We do this by externally accessing the void and injecting the Evobead product.

Cavity wall insulation also offers good sound proofing compared to solid brick wall reducing the noise impact from external sounds.

This insulation measure can normally be completed in less than a day, this is dependent on the size of your home.

Cavity Wall Insulation
Loft Insulation

Loft Insulation

At Wizard Eco we use Knauf loft insulation. When insulating a loft we use the following process of layering rock mineral wool material in your roof space that traps heat. The insulation is laid between the joists, (the horizontal beams across the floor of your attic) or the rafters (the angled beams that supports the roof).

If access is easy and loft joints are regular, rolls of mineral wool can be laid between those joists – (the horizontal beams that make up the floor or the loft) then another layer is laid at right angles to cover the joists and make the insulation up the required.
