Knauf Insulations innovative ThermoShell® Internal Wall Insulation (IWI) system has been installed in a pre 1919 hard-to-treat property, as part of a retrofit project carried out by St Vincents Housing Association to provide a Cosy Home learning centre.
The Cosy Home helps people find out how they can save money in their own homes. The project also helped to give guidance and recommendations to customers considering the Green Deal.
Callum Jones, Development and Sustainability Officer at St Vincents, commented: "We have worked with Knauf Insulations IWI system before and several of our colleagues have previously attended Knauf Insulations ThermoShell Training Academy to become approved installers, so we decided this was the best solution to upgrade the solid walls.
"By installing Knauf Insulations IWI system and green technologies such as A rated double glazed windows and an A rated combi boiler, we have reduced fuel costs by almost three quarters from £883 to £232 per year and CO2 emissions from 5.20 tonnes to 1.90 tonnes per year which is excellent!
