Solid walls have the added benefit of being insulated internally by applying rigid insulation boards to the existing walls, or by building a studded wall and then inserting insulation directly. There is a wide variety of insulation options available with the most common types of insulation being mineral and sheep’s wool.
Internal insulation on solid walls is generally a much cheaper option and a more cost-effective solution than installing external wall insulation, which has many added benefits as far as the cost of installation goes.
Additionally, you’ll also find internal wall insulation on solid walls can be installed one room at a time, making your wall insulation much more controllable and easier to manage.
In the UK alone, 28% of all home owners have a solid wall construction. Evaluating these statistics, this equates to more than 7 million homes. Most homes that were built before the mid-1930’s will certainly have solid walls, most of which have the further benefit of being insulated.
How Solid Wall Insulation works?
Solid wall insulation is a great way to store heat in your home. It achieves this by absorbing heat from both inside and outside of the property during the day. Acting like a heat collector, the warmth is stored throughout the walls of your home. On the flip side, external wall insulation will help counter-balance the absorption of heat during those ever so hot summer months.
The benefits of solid wall insulation include:
How much can I save on installing Solid Wall Insulation?
You could be saving on your energy spend depending on the characterises of the property. Each home would need to be independently assessed, but more importantly the main benefits of installing solid wall insulation would be reduced energy costs and consumption.
The Energy Savings Trust has estimated that the annual savings from a typical homeowner for a detached house are around £460, up to £270 for a semi-detached and approximately £180 for a mid-terraced. You can see from these figures alone that solid wall insulation is a great home investment.

Solid wall insulation is a method of insulating the walls of a building by applying insulation materials internally or externally. This can include materials such as mineral wool or sheep's wool, and can be used to reduce heat loss and increase energy efficiency in the home.
Solid wall insulation works by absorbing heat from both inside and outside of the property during the day. The warmth is stored in the walls of the home, which helps to keep the home warm during the winter. External wall insulation can also help to counterbalance the absorption of heat during hot summer months.
The benefits of solid wall insulation include reduced heat loss, a cosy warm home during the winter, saving money on energy costs, acting as an effective noise barrier, and increasing the value of the property.
The amount you can save on energy costs will depend on the characteristics of your property. The Energy Savings Trust estimates that the annual savings for a typical homeowner for a detached house are around £460, up to £270 for a semi-detached and approximately £180 for a mid-terraced.
