In continuation from energy saving tips – house wall insulation, in the case of solid walls, insulation is applied to either the inside or the outside surface. In contrary to the case of cavity walls, where insulation is usually applied by filling the middle gap, insulating a solid wall is considered of primal importance as

Continuing from previous article on energy saving tips – house wall insulation, in the case of cavity walls, insulation is applied by filling the gap between the two wall layers with insulating material.

Electric vehicles are vehicles which use electricity as their fuel instead of the ordinary cars which use petrol or other fossil fuels. Electric cars need charging, they need to be plugged in to get charged.  Electric

It has been calculated that around 35% of all heat losses in homes with poor or no insulation is wasted through the walls. As in first law of thermodynamics, heat flows from a hotter body to a colder one until thermal equilibrium is reached. So in winter, heat flows from inside (hotter) to the outside,
