Internal Wall Insulation

Internal Wall Insulation

  • is generally cheaper to install than external wall insulation
  • will slightly reduce the floor area of any rooms in which it is applied (the thickness of the insulation is around 100mm)
  • is disruptive, but can be done room by room
  • requires skirting boards, door frames and external fittings to be removed and reattached
  • can make it hard to fix heavy items to inside walls – although special fixings are available
  • needs any problems with penetrating or rising damp to be fixed first.
  • Internal solid wall insulation, rather than external, is particularly appropriate where you need to maintain the external appearance of the building (e.g. in a heritage context).
