Each year costly energy escapes through un-insulated walls. Turning up the heating carries an increasingly high financial burden and the trend is likely to continue with soaring energy prices.
Installing Ultrotherm allows you to turn down your heating thermostat and reduce the cost of heating your home.

Typical energy cost for gas and electricity

Insulating solid walls increases their thermal resistance and reduces heat loss. Carbon savings are achieved through the reduced use of heating including gas and electricity.
Poorly insulated walls allow heat to escape into the atmosphere, adding to the problem of global warming.
Ultrotherm is manufactured using existing technologies and recyclable materials.
