Why can I claim?

- Your home not being suitably placed for the cavity wall insulation, homes in areas that see higher rainfall are more susceptible to problems
- Your home may not even have a cavity
- The cavity of your property should have been properly cleaned before any insulation was installed, there may be debris or other foreign objects in the cavity
- The insulation may have been installed negligently
- Your home may have already had insulation installed

What is a Cavity Wall?
Most houses built after 1920 were built using two individual layers of brick with a void (or cavity) in between the two layers. Generally, you can tell if your property has a cavity due to the pattern of the brickwork.
This cavity was put in place to ensure excess rainwater from outside could not move through to the inside layer of brickwork causing issues in the property with damp. Most houses build prior to 1920 were built without a cavity, the brickwork pattern is slightly different. Solid wall insulation should not be confused with cavity wall insulation.
Around 30-35% of all heat that is lost from an uninsulated home escapes through the walls. In order to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty, the government created the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme. All major energy providers have an obligation under the scheme to ensure customers that are potentially impacted by fuel poverty are provided solutions to ensure their properties are energy efficient (to reduce bills). One of these solutions is to provide cavity wall insulation to reduce the heat being lost through walls. Having cavity wall insulation installed could save customers up to £225 per year.
