London is a busy, bustling and expensive place, and so those who are lucky enough to own properties in the capital are looking for ways to save on money and improve the value of their homes. One of the best ways to achieve both of these things is solid wall insulation, so we’re going to talk a bit about why exactly solid wall insulation is perfect for the London homeowner.
Higher Property Prices
London is renowned for its high property prices, so if you’ve managed to get yourself on the property ladder in London then you may be looking at ways that you can improve on your investment.
Solid wall insulation (SWI) is a great solution, as it can dramatically improve the energy performance of your property, which in turn can increase its value. The higher your EPC rating at the time of sale, the more appealing your property will be to future owners.
On top of this, giving the building itself a bit of a facelift can also work wonders on making it more appealing for future buyers.
Greater Levels of Pollution
Because of the fact that London is a busy place, there are greater levels of pollution which can play havoc with your nice coloured render finish.
Choosing to have solid wall insulation installed means that you can choose a hydrophobic, self cleaning render as your decorative finish. This type of render is very good at maintaining a clean finish, so you’re less likely to see discolouration due to pollution. Our Premium Bio Silicone Render is the best at maintaining a clean finish – you can check it out here.
Grey Concrete Jungle
London is a big city, some might call it a ‘concrete jungle,’ so a nice fresh render would ensure that your property stands out from the grey crowd.
Higher Cost of Living – Save Money on Bills
London is more expensive, and the cost of living is higher than the rest of the country. This means people are looking for ways to reduce their monthly expenditures, and solid wall insulation is a great solution.
Installing SWI means that you can reduce your energy consumption every month, while still maintaining a comfortable temperature within your home. Solid wall insulation can save a detached property up to £400 a year on energy bills, giving you a little extra leeway.
