The above system
was trailedby Saint Gobain at Salford Energy House project amongst other technologies
in that test, extracting the results on that project and applying them here
would produce excellent results in this environment (YouTube, 2016)
The internal walls on a whole contribute
to heat loss, by not being insulation the house on a whole.
A trialled system by super homes creates section members of insulation that is battened onto
A further trial used in this research
was the super homes energy upgrade in Camden town, over 5 tons of carbon
savings were made between the use of high efficiency double glazing and the
internal wall insulation.

The picture above shows a thermal image
showing the heat loss of a non-externally insulated property experiences versus
an externally insulated property.
It can be seen them in the thermal image
above and the accompanying scale on the bottom of the photo, the house on the
left externally experiences temperatures in the 2-4 degree © range ,this shows
the house is warming up the outside walls from an inside out approach.
In the second picture ,the house
on the right ,the envelope of insulation keeps the heat contained inside the
house and the external temperature is -2,-3 –this shows the heat is not
escaping the envelope as the insulation is keeping the heat inside. In the
first building survey it was identified along the two entrance rooms (lounge 1)
that damp matches were found, these were measuring 15-25% on the damp meter,
with black spots and mould spore growth Thus for this reason excavation will be
required to repair this, and from an economic standpoint whilst a water proof
membrane or damp coarse is being inserted into the wall. This insulation
measure can be added
homes of similar Victorian construction were upgraded with internal insulation
this was documented and demonstrated inIntroduction to internal insulation: a
visit to three homes(YouTube, 2016).
While the floors are up its economically
viable to install underfloor heating, it is planned that this system will tie
into the gas central heating system of which a new energy efficient will be
suggested later in this report, and whilst in most install ions wall mounted
radiator can be controlled, in this scenario the internal temperature of the
house can be thermostatically controlled.
The current floors are a solid system,
probably a concrete construction, which traditionally was poured over building waist
and debris, the point being here is that a cold bridge exists between the house
temperature being warm and the cold ground temperature that is now bridged into
In traditional built Victorian homes joists
run across under the floor boards which acted as an insulation barrier by
having a gap of air between the ground and the floor of the house-here that gap
and thus that insulation is missing.
Up to 14% of a home’s heat can be lost through
