Insulations â Internal Dry Lining
Internal insulation (or Dry Lining)Â is where you attach insulation to the inside of a wall.Â So where the existing plaster work is currently youÂ fix about 100 mm of insulation material on to the wall and finish it with plaster board, then you can redecorate.Â This solution is cheaper than external insulation and if you are redecorating it can be included in the project with a minimum amount of hassle.House2Home usesÂ Kingspan Kooltherm K17, whichÂ complies with the TGD part L Building Regulations

Insulations â Cavity Wall
Is an expanded polystyrene material which is injected in bead form with a binding agent into cavity walls. It is used to reduce the thermal transmittance (heat loss) of completed, new or existing cavity walls with masonry inner and outer leaves. It also facilitates the control of surface interstitial (forming in one or more gaps or cracks) condensation in walls.
Cavity walls became popular inIrelandin the 80s.Â Quite simply they are two walls built side by side with a gap of about 60mm between them.Â The cavity between the two walls in older houses can be filled with insulation and new homes nowadays are built with excellent approved insulation material in the cavity.Â If you have a cavity wall, it is fast and easy to pump in insulation. If you donât have a cavity then this system will not work.
Insulation â Attic
Spray foam insulation is a Premium performance rigid thermoset insulation. This method has aÂ thermal conductivity rateÂ as low as 0.020 W/m.K. Some key benefits of the spray foam insulation include its ability to reach into small areas and fill most voids. This Home Insulation method is especially useful if there is a room in the attic, as youÂ can insulate at rafter height.
Also a flexible fiber glass or Rock WoolÂ insulation sizing from 100mm thick to 300mm thick depending on the specification of the job can be used. This is one of the most cost effective ways to apply Home Insulation.
