There is no doubt about it – energy prices are on the rise. This means that now, more than ever, it’s essential to take measures to insulate your home and make sure that you’re not wasting energy. The Government has recently released statistics showing that “the amount of energy lost in UK homes is equivalent to the output from eight power stations.” This means that a quarter of all energy consumed in Britain is used for heating and hot water, two-thirds of which is wasted because homes are poorly insulated.
Check your cavity wall insulation and your current loft insulation levels to see if you should address the issue of heat loss in your home. Even if you’re not worried about the environment, it makes sense to think about insulating your home. Insulation Sussex is a premium installer of spray foam insulation and cavity wall insulation across Sussex. The cavity wall insulation they install will help keep your home warmer, reduce energy bills, and protect the environment. Insulating your loft or cavity walls is quick to do and could save you money every month on your energy bills.
Spray foam insulation is another excellent option for cavity insulation. Foam-based insulation, spray foam insulation, is usually injected into the cavity and expands in all directions, filling every corner simultaneously increasing wall stability. It will not shrink, sag or rot. Every hole is filled, maximizing cavity efficiency. Today spray foam insulation is made of three layers created simultaneously with two chemicals that react when mixed.
The first type of spray polyurethane foam was developed in Germany during World War II to help save the German U-Boats from being detected by enemy sonar. After the war, Americans discovered this new technology and began using it for commercial air cargo holds used in aircraft, including passenger planes.
This discovery led to spray foam insulation being widely commercially available around 1957 under brand names such as 'Icynene', 'Polyon', 'Plantation' and more.
