By having your home properly insulated, you are creating a barrier to the heat flow. It will reduce the heat escaping in the winter – significantly reducing your heating bills – while reducing the heat entering your home in the summer months. As well as reducing your energy bills, good insulation in your home will also reduce your carbon footprint as you are reducing the use of your gas and electricity-powered central heating. When your home is insulated, it can also help prevent condensation and therefore damp and mould which can damage paint, plaster and wallpaper as well as cause some health conditions.
Drylining is another way of ensuring as little heat as possible escapes from your home as it creates a cavity between the wall and plasterboard which can be packed with insulation. This process will also reduce the chance of condensation forming.
