Premier Insulations and cavity wall insulation extraction

As providers and contractors of cavity wall insulation for over thirty years premier insulations recently realised there was a big gap in the market for extracting poor performing cavity wall insulation which had failed in performance over the years and was not providing the thermal insulation as initially intended.

Homeowners may ask why would cavity wall insulation if installed properly by a professional company fail To continue to do its work by enhancing the thermal properties of the walls . The logical answer is that there are many reasons cavity wall insulation may need to be extracted from homes and I list the most popular reasons as follows:

  • Poor installation practices by unprofessional companies
  • Degeneration of the insulation caused by unusual forces such as unusually excessive penetration of dampness through the external leaf
  • Insulation material installed at wrong densities particularly prone to fibre product
  • Older insulation products with poor thermal values compared to those available today
  • Loss of insulation material through extending or demolition .

These plus other factors determine homeowners decision to have existing cavity wall insulation removed and we at Premier Insulations are the experts when this service is required.

We have developed the technology to safety and completely remove poor performing cavity wall insulation without any damage or loss of integrity to the walls of the property. Premier Insulations have completed over 50 extraction in the last two years and are fast becoming recognised in the industry as the market leaders in cavity wall insulation and cavity insulation extraction.

Premier Insulations have in excess of thirty years experience in the home insulation industry and provides a comprehensive nationwide service throughout Ireland . Premier Insulation also offer sprayed foam insulation for new and existing buildings using both the PurAcell open cell foam system and the PurAcell 2000 closed cell system .

Premier Insulations provide a one stop shop for cavity wall insulation , attic insulation , sprayed foam insulation and cavity wall insulation extraction

What’s new in Premier Insulations

Premier Insulations are delighted to announce their success in their recent tender for the SEAI Better Energy Warmer Homes panel.

Premier were ranked number one in the Lot A for the installation of retrofit insulation and ventilation measures as installed under the SEAI better Energy warmer Homes Scheme. Premier Have been involved in the delivery of warmer homes under this scheme for the past seven years and have built a successful relationship with SEAI in delivering upgrades to fuel poverty homes throughout the length and breath of Ireland.

What are Fuel poverty homes: These are homeowners who struggle to buy adequate fuel for their homes throughout the winter months and may be on state aids such as fuel allowance etc. There are certain criteria’s to be met to be eligible for the scheme and ownership of your home is the main one. Also the home must be built prior to 2006 when insulation of homes was not of great standards compared to that required today.
SEAI was charged with improving the standard of insulation in Irish homes right throughout the Island of Ireland and recently additional deep retrofit measures were added to the upgrades to include internal drylining , external insulation , heating controls and boiler replacement.

All of these measures undertaken in homes through various government led schemes will help the Irish government to reach their targets as outlined under various world organisation agreements and obligation to reduce carbon emmissions by 2020. There are a lot of various grants available to fuel poverty homes of which some are 100% funded others are partially funded and also schemes available for industrial , commercial and institution buildings.

All details relating to these grants and general information on energy upgrades can be found on the SEAI website. www.seai.ie.

So remember if your home is cold , hard to heat or energy inefficient contact Premier insulations at Freephone 1800646410 and we will help you with your grant application and advice.

Heating and insulation in the home

many homeowners when considering either upgrading or building a home are aware that heating their home will be a very expensive running. Cost over the years of occupancy. The common mistake is focussing on the actual heating system rather than allowing an equally amount of research and money in how they are going to insulate their home. I often say that you can heat a field if you put in enough heaters to do so, however as you will probably instantly agree a field would be very quickly clod again once the heat source was switched off .

Your home is the same, whilst the source of your heat and the cost is very important , it is much more important to retain that expensive heat within the habitable area of the house when you remove or turn of the heat source. As we move towards passive homes the importance of really good insulation is becoming more and more important.

For example; an A rated home which would have really good insulation, a top class heating and ventilation recovery system and first class air tightness would have no heat loss and require no traditional heating system as we know it. We cannot all build A rated homes but we can take steps to deep retrofit our existing homes and dramatically improve our energy efficiency whilst reducing our carbon footprint and saving money in the process.

Typical measures which are relatively inexpensive to install are, cavity wall insulation, attic insulation, heating controls and energy saving lightening. We can also be more vigilant in running our homes by switching off lights, turning down our thermostats by even one degree and having showers instead of baths. We in Ireland have not been particularly good at playing our part in a voluntary capacity to reduce carbon emissions and with a little better housekeeping by everyone we can play our part and enjoy monetary saving whilst doing so .

House Insulation In Ireland

Premier Insulations have over 30 years experience in the delivery of home insulation retrofit measures in Ireland.
Premier specialise in cavity fill insulation for both exiting homes and new built homes whom want to get it right from the start.

So your considering wall insulation for a new home you are constructing . You will have many choices and different architects will have varying opinions as to the best methodology of wall insulation. Most new homes with the exception of IFC homes will be built with a cavity. Some arcitects will specify a board type insulation be it polystyrene board or polyurethane board. This is typically supplied in 4 x 2 sheets is very expensive and difficult to install properly especially when it comes to joining corners etc. Builders generally do not like board for a variety of reasons mainly because it is bulky for storage , difficult to install, and incurs a lot of cut offs and waste. Other building systems will include constructing a hollow block wall and erecting a steel stud system internally and fitting board in between before finally fitting a gypsum board and skimming out.

The next option , the easiest option and the option makes most sense is to construct your cavity wall and install blown platinum bead prior to plastering. The benefits are obvious: No storage of board on site , no risk of the insulation been fitted improperly by block layers who have received no training or certification in fitting board.

Absolutely no wastage , installed by NSAI Certified insulation company’s who are fully trained in the process. The u-value which you require can be easily achieved by predetermining the width of the cavity at either 100mm /150mm, 200mm or for passive homes 250/300mm. The most common cavity width is 150mm which when filled with platinum bead achieve a u-value of .019.

So for your next project contact the experts . Premier Insulations. Your in safe hands.

Premier Insulations are widely experienced in delivering a wide range of insulation upgrades to homeowners both privately and through a range of energy saving schemes provide predominantly by SEAI ( Sustainable Energy authority Of Ireland ).
The most popular energy saving improvements carried out are cavity wall insulation and attic insulation. Cavity wall insulation is advisable in all home with cavities build prior to 2006 and back to around 1970 when cavity walls construction superseded solid concrete or hollow block type walls. The cavities were empty up to around 1980 when building regulation required that 25mm areoboard be installed at construction stage to improve the energy efficiency of the walls. This was revisited circa 1988 when the requirement was revised to 40mm and again in 1994 the minimum required standard was 60mm.

In 2006 new building regulations were implemented which meant the required u-values could not be achieved with areoboard and there was a switch over to polyurethane boards as produced by Kingspan and others. A recommendation was made by those in the department, seai and other interested bodies that homes build with cavity walls prior to 2006 where the preferred method of cavity insulation be revisited and residual cavities pumped with platinum bonded bead to increase the thermal efficiencies. As a result of this government led initiate thousands of homes have and are benefitting from energy upgrades right across the island of Ireland .

Attic insulation upgrades were also part of the initiate and 300mm minimum install was required together with ancillary works such as pipe insulation , raised walkways , hatch insulation and draught proofing . The better energy homes and better energy warmer homes programmes are respectively grant aided or fully grant funded and have been widened to deep retrofit measures over. The last few years to include external wall insulation , internal wall insulation , windows and doors and heating upgrades and controls .
All this reduces Ireland’s co2 emissions , helps to provide a cleaner greener Ireland and protects our future generations against the damaging consequences of global warming.
