RETROFIT | EXTERNAL WALL INSULATION
With over 50 years’ experience in the design, manufacture and installation of external wall insulation (EWI) systems; alsecco’s expertise is unrivalled in the industry.
More pertinently, alsecco is providing these solutions for the residential construction sector to support the refurbishment and renovation of millions of thermally inefficient properties in the UK. Vital to the Government’s drive to reduce CO2 emissions and improve the energy efficiency of millions of homes.
Over half the energy required for heating buildings escapes through the exterior walls and with approximately 75% of domestic energy consumption devoted to heating, the ecological and economic impact of this is significant. Research shows the most effective way to insulate buildings is total encapsulation. No matter what the construction or shape of the building, the ‘tea cosy’ effect offers the optimum solution. Using external wall insulation (EWI) ensures that the building remains warm and dry, even against the effects of cold bridging and interstitial condensation.
