What Is Internal Wall Insulation?

In a nutshell, internal wall insulation is when the inside part of an external wall is insulated. This helps keep heat and energy within the property.

Before moving forward with internal wall insulation it’s important to consider:

Insulating your external walls from the inside can help improve your building’s energy performance. Reduce heat loss through your walls and you’ll also save money on your energy bills.

Why Internal Rather Than External Wall Insulation?

For properties with solid walls, both internal and external wall insulation have pros and cons.

External wall insulation, as the name suggests, sees the exterior of the property fundamentally altered to have the insulation installed. This can impact the appearance and is often a more disruptive process.

Internal insulation on the other hand is easier and quicker to install, however the nature of it means internal space will be affected. 99% of the time this is fine, however if a room is already small and claustrophobic, or if things like power switches and radiators need to be moved, it can prove inconvenient.

Like we said, there are pros and cons to both, however one thing’s for sure; having insulation over not having insulation is definitely a winner, thanks to extra comfort and energy savings.
