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.

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. What a good performing insulating material does is to keep heat inside in winter and keep heat from entering in your home

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,
