What is External Wall Insulation?

External Wall Insulation (EWI), is a method of insulating the external walls of a building to improve its energy efficiency. This process involves the application of an insulating layer to the exterior walls, followed by a protective rendering system. EWI helps to prevent heat loss, reducing energy consumption and lowering heating costs. It also improves thermal comfort, reduces condensation, and enhances the overall appearance of your property.

External Wall Insulation, also known as Solid Wall Insulation (SWI), is a highly effective method of improving the thermal performance and energy efficiency of buildings with solid walls. Unlike cavity walls, which have a gap between the inner and outer layers, solid walls lack this cavity and therefore have poor insulation properties. External Wall Insulation involves applying an insulating layer to the external surface of the building, which helps to reduce heat loss, prevent thermal bridging, and enhance the overall energy efficiency of the property. This insulation system not only improves the comfort of the occupants but also reduces energy consumption and lowers heating costs. Additionally, External Wall Insulation can transform the appearance of a building, providing a fresh, new look while simultaneously improving its insulation performance.

Types of Materials We Use for External Wall Insulation:

  1. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS): Expanded Polystyrene, commonly known as EPS, is a lightweight and cost-effective insulation material used widely in EWI systems. EPS boards have excellent thermal insulation properties and are available in different thicknesses to meet specific insulation requirements. EPS is easy to handle, provides good resistance to moisture, and offers high compressive strength, ensuring durability and long-term performance.
    EPS has a low thermal conductivity, indicated by its Lambda value (λ), which typically ranges from 0.030 W/m·K to 0.040 W/m·K.
    EPS is cost-effective, making it a popular choice for many projects.

  2. Mineral Wool: Mineral Wool, also known as Rock Wool or Stone Wool, is a versatile and highly efficient insulation material used in EWI systems. It is made from natural rock or mineral fibres and offers excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. Mineral Wool is fire-resistant, non-combustible, and provides effective protection against heat loss, condensation, and noise transmission. It is available in various forms, including batts, rolls, and rigid boards, allowing for flexible installation options.
    The Lambda value of mineral wool insulation typically ranges from 0.032 W/m·K to 0.040 W/m·K.
    Mineral wool insulation is competitively priced and provides good value for money.

  3. Phenolic Foam: Phenolic Foam is a high-performance insulation material that offers exceptional thermal efficiency and fire resistance. It has excellent thermal conductivity, which means it provides superior insulation with thinner insulation thicknesses compared to other materials. Phenolic foam is lightweight, moisture-resistant, and provides long-term durability. It is often used in situations where space is limited or where the highest levels of insulation performance are required.
    It has a low thermal conductivity, with a Lambda value typically ranging from 0.018 W/m·K to 0.022 W/m·K. Phenolic foam insulation provides superior thermal insulation with thinner insulation thicknesses compared to other materials.
    Phenolic foam insulation offers superior thermal insulation with thinner insulation thicknesses compared to other materials. It is a premium insulation option with a higher cost compared to other materials.
  4. Expanded Polystyrene (XPS): XPS is known for its exceptional thermal insulation properties. It has a closed-cell structure that provides high resistance to heat transfer, effectively reducing thermal bridging and heat loss through external walls. XPS is inherently resistant to moisture, It has a high compressive strength and does not absorb water, which helps to protect the structural integrity of the building envelope and making it an ideal choice for insulating below damp course.
    The Lambda value of XPS typically ranges from 0.028 W/m·K to 0.038 W/m·K, depending on the specific product and thickness
    It’s important to note that the cost of insulation materials can vary based on factors such as thickness, density, market conditions, and project requirements.
