Cambridgeshire Warmer Walls – An insulation solution for homes with solid walls
Do you live in a property that is difficult to insulate and keep warm? Perhaps your home has a mansard roof or dormer ceilings? If so, we may have the answer. Huntingdonshire District Council and neighbouring local authorities have joined up with MGC Ltd (Mould Growth Consultants) to bring a you a special discounted offer to help keep out the cold.
The solution is a product called Sempatap, which is thermal insulation on a roll. It’s as easy as wallpaper to apply. There is hardly any mess and it can be decorated with virtually anything – wall paper, emulsion paint, it’s even possible to hang tiles on it. The product has been used in the UK for over 15 years by local authorities and housing associations.
Homes with solid walls, mansard roofs and dormer ceilings can lose up to 45% of their heat. Condensation can also cause a problem in these properties with cold walls, which can then lead to mould growth.
Sempatap is an effective solution, it will help householders keep warm, save money on their fuel bills and benefit the environment by reducing carbon emissions. Sempatap Thermal is an Energy Saving Trust ‘recommended product’.
