Many homes in this area are of solid wall construction. Solid wall homes are often poorly insulated and lose a high proportion of their heat through the walls. There is now an increased focus on insulating solid walls, and the Government’s Green Deal scheme and ECO subsidy are designed to encourage this practice, alongside other energy efficiency measures.
To help residents of Lichfield to understand more about it, Southern Staffordshire Community Energy and the Energy Saving Co-op were asked by Lichfield District Council to commission a video showing how solid wall insulation works and how to identify a solid wall property.
The partnership also delivered 4 solid wall show homes across Lichfield: several of these are featured in the video.
If you live in a solid wall property and would like to further help on insulating it please contact Kate Sadler on 07565 963282. We may also be able to arrange for you to visit a solid wall property that has already had external or internal insulation installed.
