Adding external wall insulation (EWI) to the external walls of your property will make a positive difference to how your rooms feel all year round. If you are currently experiencing uncomfortable temperatures throughout your property, i.e. too hot during the summer and too cold in the winter, then installing external wall insulation could be for you.
It works by wrapping a building in a thermally resistant cladding before being rendered with a protective, weatherproof finish. Almost like giving it a super warm, coat and then adding a waterproof layer to keep things even more snug.
Without EWI, you may find that temperatures in your home vary and maintaining the right temperature is difficult. In the long run, investing in EWI could save you money and once installed you will soon feel the difference as the amount of energy lost is reduced.

Every year we see the prices of our utility bills increase. Whether it’s for gas, electricity or water, it can feel like we’re constantly paying more for these services, despite receiving a meagre annual increase to our salaries.
According to a report from University College London our electricity and gas bills rose by £2bn in the year after the 2016 referendum result because of the plummeting value of the pound. With Brexit on the horizon, there are valid fears of future energy price hikes.
Trying to keep these bills low for a home, office or building block can be a struggle. There are many types of heating systems (like underfloor heating) that can heat a large surface area for a lower cost compared to traditional radiators.
Whilst this method is concentrated on heating rooms from the inside, External Wall Insulation (EWI) differs, as it works by adding an external layer to a building that holds the heat in. EWI is not a cheap process, but is one that can provide a long term reduction of heating bills.
The process involves adding, to external walls, a material that is insulated. A professional renderer will then apply a protective render in order to make the external walls look clean and modern. Nowadays, decorative coatings and cladding can be used for homes of all styles and periods including, Edwardian, Victorian and Georgian.
Whilst the cost of external insulation can be higher than insulation for internal walls, it has the added advantages of providing insulation against damp and noise pollution. It is also a great way to boost the efficiency and subsequent value of a property.
There’s no getting away from the fact that EWI is a good long term investment that will help reduce your energy consumption as well as saving you money on those bills. Are you ready to have a chat about applying this to the walls of your home? Call us today on 07812 343 766.
