Lower your energy bills
Insulating your property with External Wall Insulation (EWI) will dramatically reduce the amount of heat that escapes through each solid wall. A wall with EWI is typical ten times more efficient than a solid wall. This means you would be able to turn down your heating or room thermostat and have your heating on for shorter periods because your home will retain the heat better, keeping you warmer for much longer. EWI typical saves you 45% of your energy bill.
Make your home more comfortable
A poorly insulated property allows the temperature outside to penetrate through to the inside more easily making living conditions very uncomfortable. The same applies for single and double glazed windows. This can lead some rooms having to be rearranged to avoid the cold and possible damp spots in your home. In extremely cold conditions some rooms may even end up becoming completely unused in an attempt to create warmer spots elsewhere in the home.
Insulating your home provides a thermal barrier from the outside elements. It prevents the cold outside penetrating through to the inside whilst retaining the heat generated on the inside. The whole house will become a much warmer and cosier place. Amazingly, in the summer with hot conditions it has the opposite effect of keeping the home cooler.
Why would you want all that money you spend on keeping warm in the winter escaping out through your solid walls, un-insulated loft space, single glazed windows or badly fitted windows and doors
Eliminate damp problems
Solid wall properties often experience damp problems, especially as they age. The outside walls can become porous and allow water to penetrate into the home. Cracks and gaps can form over time which allows draughts and water into your property. But the most common complaint is condensation on the walls. Cracked windows or ineffective double glazed sealed units will also have the same effect.
All of these potential problems are difficult to address and cost a lot of money to rectify and get rid of for good. If left untreated, mould and mildew forms which is even harder and more expensive to treat.
EWI, new windows and doors will provide your home with a tough new weatherproof layer which will protect against penetrating damp and seal up the gaps and cracks. Inside you will be much warmer and the condensation issues will be cured. In turn this will save money on future maintenance and repair costs.
Prolong the life of your external walls
The UK climate throws all kinds of weather conditions at your home. Strong winds, driving rain, snow and frost and sometimes searing heat means that the walls of your home are constantly under threat.
The EWI system recommended by Clique Energy is a specially designed multi-layer system with a silicon rendered finish that is guaranteed to protect your home from whatever the British weather throws at it for many years to come. No more will the walls need costly repairs such as re-rendering or pebble dashing, re-painting or re-pointing. EWI has a minimum life expectancy of over 30 years.
Reduce external noise
Solid walls also tend to suffer more from noise pollution as there is no cavity to disperse noise vibrations. EWI and double glazing is excellent at reducing external noise levels and will make your home more peaceful if you live in a noisy location.
Update the look of your home
No longer will the discoloured finish of the windows or the flaky render or breaking down pebble dash finish make your property look unloved. The new windows or walls with its tough silicon rendered finish, available is choice of colours to suit is guaranteed to have a life expectancy of at least 30 years with virtually no maintenance requirements. EWI provides a fresh new and updated look for your home.
Increase the value your of home
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has performed a study that shows homes that are more energy efficient sell for considerably more than those that are inefficient. An increase of between 5% to 14% has been seen for homes that have an improved energy performance rating. Solid wall properties, will at best, have an energy rating of “D”, more often than not they are nearer to “F” rated. Bringing you home up to a “C” or “B” rating can add thousands of pounds to its value.
