What is Wall Insulation?
Wall Insulation is used in homes and buildings to minimise heat loss. This is by filling air space with materials such as mineral wool or glass wool to stop heat transfer. Using Wall Insulation in your home is a cost effective way of heating your home and can cut heating bills considerably.

This is done by a specialist company drilling little holes into the wall and blowing special insulation material into the walls.
If you have solid walls you will need another way of tackling this as there is no cavity to fill.
One way is to add the wall insulation on the inside walls one room at a time from inside the house, maybe when renovating or redecorating. By working on each room at a time you can spread the costs, plus the mess and disruption it may cause. It is possible to fit internal wall insulation to the walls, or you could build a stud wall and put the wall insulation behind it.
If you are having new internal walls built then you could incorporate wall insulation into the new stud wall very easily.
External wall insulation is another option, especially if you have solid walls and don't want the disruption inside the house. It would be a good thing to have external wall insulation done when there is other work being done. Especially, if you will need to have scaffolding up to get the work done.
External wall insulation is fixed to the outside walls. It then needs covering with special render or cladding, leaving your home looking smart. This sort of wall insulation will fill any gaps in the brickwork. It make it less draughty and more weather resistant, it will also extend the life span of the brickwork.
