Party wall insulation is an insulation material designed to be installed between semi-detached or terraced properties. The gap in the wall between you and your neighbour’s property is called a party wall. When a party wall is insulated, it prevents cold air from moving up and down the side of the house, which causes heat loss. Around 5 million homes could benefit from party wall insulation. At Trade Insulations, we offer our very best prices on party wall insulation.
If the property has cavity walls, then the party wall may also have a cavity. Sometimes these cavities are sealed which prevents air flowing through them and heat loss however if your party wall cavity has vents connecting to the outside air, then cold air will flow into the cavity taking heat from all the adjoining rooms and drawing it up into the loft space.
How is cavity wall insulation installed?
Always call a specialist to install your Cavity wall insulation to prevent problems occurring in the future or damages being made to the property.
Cavity party walls are insulated by drilling a hole in the relevant walls and then injecting mineral wool, polystyrene beads, or other types of insulation materials into the cavity.
The drill hole is then filled, and the wall is refinished to match the rest of the wall.
Party wall insulation is provided by several brands including Rockwool, Isover and Knauf, and others.
