Free Cavity Wall Insulation Scotland
Cavity wall insulation is an insulating material which is placed in the gap between the inner and outer wall of your property, making it more energy-efficient. Our preferred insulating material is a bonded EPS bead system due to its durability, low thermal conductivity and moisture resistance. Our free cavity wall insulation Scotland team will be sure to keep you involved in every step of the process. If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to speak to our team.
What is a Cavity Wall?
A cavity wall is a wall formed by an inner skin and an outer skin of masonry, connected by ties, but separated by a cavity. The masonry is formed by units such as brick, stone or block. Typically, if the external walls of a building are less than 30 cm thick, then they are unlikely to include a cavity.
Pre-1920 and older houses are more likely to have solid walls. A solid wall has no cavity; each wall is a single solid wall, usually made of brick or stone. Our Surveyor can identify this during the survey inspection, and if necessary we can carry out a boroscope check on your wall and put a camera inside it to see if your home is suitable for free cavity wall insulation in Scotland.

What Is EPS?
EPS is a lightweight cellular material consisting of fine spherical shaped particles which are 98% air and 2% polystyrene. This expandable polystyrene is a rigid cellular plastic containing an expansion agent called pentane. It has low thermal conductivity, which makes the material have a long term R-value, meaning it is resistant to heat flow and an ideal product for thermal insulation.
Low Water Absorption:EPS bead does not absorb moisture and its thermal properties are not affected by damp, humidity or moisture. Its closed-cell means it cannot absorb water and the bead will maintain its shape, size, structure and appearance. We ensure the EPS will materials will last as long as the structure will.

How Do I Get Started with Free Cavity Wall Insulation Scotland?
The first thing you need to do is to contact us at M3 Energy Scotland. We will discuss the entire process with you and organise a surveyor to attend the site at a suitable date and time. They will carry out an assessment of your property to confirm that it is suitable for insulation. This assessment will also be double-checked by the actual installer before installation. We like to make sure that you get the best service possible and ensure you we will cause as little disruption to your home as possible. .
What Will I Need To Do When Getting Free Cavity Wall insulation Scotland?
When carrying out the installation we may advise that a few things are done before we make a start. We recommend that you remove ornaments as the drilling may cause some vibrations. This is particularly true on the external walls, we advise this for safety and your peace of mind. The technician will need access to all walls, so they will need to get inside attached garages, lean-to sheds, conservatories etc. The insulation can only be really effective if all walls are done. If you have a wall right on the boundary, you may like to mention to your neighbour that the technician will need to go onto their property. As we mentioned, if you have any questions at all about the installation, please don’t hesitate to ask us. .
How Long Will It Take?
A cavity wall insulation normally takes around 2-3 hours to install, but the time does depend on the size of the house and other factors, such as accessibility. If you have any questions about this, please call us for more information..
