- 100mm external EPS Kreisel Systems solution installed
- u-value of walls improved to 0.27W/m2k
- Up to £400 saving on heating bills from the installation
- Property energy rating improved to a band D
The external 100mm solid wall insulation solution has been installed on this semi-detached property in Greenford, Middlesex. In this case, Mr Smith has benefited a little bit from the Government grant with the rest of the project being self-financed.
Many properties in this part of Middlesex and Greater London were built either in the late 1800s or early 1900s with solid brick walls, which means cavity wall insulation is not possible to do. Solid wall insulation can either be installed on the inside or the outside of the property, and the customer chose external due to space considerations and to maximise the benefits of the externally applied render solution.
Having the 100mm EPS Kreisel system solution installed, has brought the property up to a band D rating on the EPC register. Not only has it improved the energy rating, the external wall solution will on average save Mr Smith’s family nearly £400 on heating bills. With the property being cosier and warmer it is also now protected from weathering, as the silicon silicut render goes on top of the insulation to provide all these additional benefits.
