my maisonette seems to lose a fair bit of heat and i have to put the
heating on almost constantly to keep it warm. the wall in the lounge
and main bedroom is an outside wall and is north facing. it is always
very cold to touch, and condensation must go straight to this wall as
mould has appeared on several occasions.
i am writing to ask about cavity wall insulation. i only own the
ground floor and there is another flat above me that shares this
wall. it sounds like cavity wall insulation would stop this wall
being so cold which would save energy bills and also stop the wall
attracting condensation. but how would this work with my neighbour
above? i guess i'd have to pay for the whole job or convince him to
has anybody else here had this job done and did they get any help in
the form of a grant from the council or energy companies?
