Internal Wall Insulation

You could be eligible for FREE internal wall insulation*

Internal wall insulation is more commonly known as solid wall insulation and its an effective way of keeping heat from escaping through the walls, especially if your home is not suitable for cavity fill.

This type of insulation is usually recommended for homes built before 1920 that do not have a cavity. If your home has a cavity and suitable for cavity insulation, then this is a better and quicker option.

What is Internal Wall Insulation and what are the benefits?

There are an estimated 25 million homes in the UK of which more than 30 per cent have been deemed hard to insulate with traditional methods, for example, cavity wall insulation.

The majority of these have a solid wall.  Internal wall insulation is an excellent solution to significantly improve the thermal efficiency of our homes, reduce energy bills and play a vital role in reducing co2 emissions.

How is internal wall insulation fitted?

Internal wall insulation is done by building a stud wall filled in with insulation material such as mineral wool fibre. This is a more cost-effective solution than external wall insulation.

  • An insulated stud frame is applied to all exterior facing walls internally.
  • Insulation batts are applied to all areas within the stud frame.
  • A vapour barrier is applied and fixed to the studs prior to plasterboard being fixed and prepared for plastering.
  • It is then plastered ready for a decorated finish.

Dyson Energy Services can install ancillary items such as skirting boards, windowsills and extend electrical sockets/remove and replace radiators as necessary.

Can I get a grant to cover the cost?

Yes, you can.  There is funding available through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.  This is an obligation placed by the government on to the energy suppliers, to provide funding for energy-saving measures, including insulation and boiler replacements, for qualifying households.  This is part of a wider government strategy to reduce carbon emissions and help householders save money on their energy bills.


New government driven standards

New government driven standards, that came into effect from the 1st of July, mean that householders who sign up to funded energy efficiency measures through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, will benefit from a new requirement to install additional ventilation in their homes, where required.


How much money will internal wall insulation save me?

The Energy Saving Trust suggest that a household could save up to £420 per year depends on how the type of home you live in.

Frequently asked questions

Would I have to remove my furniture before installation?

Our surveyor would discuss this with you during your home survey and advise at that time what preparation would need to be done before installation.

How long does it take to install?

A typical property such as a 3-bedroom mid-terrace property would usually take between three and five days to install.

What insulation products do you install?

For the framework – we use a thermally engineered stud, extruded polystyrene bonded to a15mm strip of oriented strandboard.  We use water repellent glass mineral wool slabs.

The insulation that is applied within the frame is an earthwool batt, water repellent glass mineral wool slab.

The overall system is 110mm thick, which includes the plastered finish

Do I get a guarantee with the works?

Yes, you will receive a 25-year industry-backed guarantee.
