Internal Wall Insulation
Internal wall insulation typically consists of either dry lining in the form of flexible thermal linings available in 1 metre by 12.5 metre rolls, laminated insulating plasterboard (known as thermal board), or built-up systems using fibrous insulation such as mineral wool held in place using a studwork frame.

Cavity Wall Insulation stores the heat within the inner walls, bouncing it back into the room and holding it for longer.
If you live in a home with solid walls, 45% of your heat is escaping through the walls which is costing you money.
As much as a third of the heat you pay for could be escaping through your roof.
Draught proofing is one of the most inexpensive and effective energy efficiency measures for the home.
