Our energy assessors will inspect your property and agree a plan with you that gives the best result for your home. Our “whole house” approach ensures that when we have finished your home is warm, and you have sufficient ventilation to have good air quality and no issues with condensation.
Internal And External Wall Insulation
Homes with solid walls, and this includes most properties built before 1919, lose around 30% of their heat through the walls. This is due to the poor thermal properties of the brick or stone. This can be greatly reduced by fitting insulation to either the inside or the outside of the house.
There are pros and cons of both internal wall (IWI) and external wall (EWI) insulation as follows:
Internal Wall Insulation:
- Generally cheaper to install than EWI.
- Doesn’t change the external appearance of the property.
- Only option in a flat where the freeholder may not give permission for external works.
- Disruptive if you are living in the property during the works.
- Need to move / extend electrical sockets and media cables.
- Requires redecoration after works completed.
- Loss of floor space due to thickness of insulation.
External Wall Insulation:
- Other repair work may be needed before EWI is fitted (remove render, fix rainwater goods, etc)
- Changes, but may improve, the external appearance of a property.
- Can be completed without accessing the home so not as disruptive as IWI.
- No loss of internal floor space.
- Often more expensive than IWI to fit.
- May not be allowed on listed buildings or in conservation areas.
Residential properties lose a lot of heat through uninsulated loft spaces.
We can insulate your loft using the best available products that meet the latest government guidelines. Further to this, our team of tradesmen can also replace any old-fashioned loft hatches.
These often allow air leakage through to the loft area – a cause of up to 10% of heat loss in a home. This simple measure can greatly reduce your heating bills and can often be completed in under a day.
You may not consider heat loss through your floor, but this can account for as much as that lost through the walls.
If you have a suspended timber floor there will be air vents in the outside wall to allow fresh air to circulate under the floorboards.
It is essential to allow this air movement to prevent wood rot in the floor timbers. However, this cold air movement also causes heat loss in the rooms above.
We will insulate between the floor joists and around the perimeter of the walls.
This greatly reduces heat loss through the floor and prevents cold air drafts into the ground floor rooms.
The products used have a 20 year guarantee (and will actually last a lot longer). It is relatively inexpensive and unobtrusive to do, and we can do a room in less than a day.
Loft Conversions And Room In Roof insulation
Are you not using your loft for anything currently? We can turn your unused loft space into anything from:
- Gaming Room
And many more…
There are many benefits of having a loft conversion inside your household that can lead to an increase in your property value and appeal. Having a loft conversion will give more habitable living space with increased energy efficiency depending on what you turn your extra space into.
We will need to discuss with you the project beforehand, when we’ve spoken to you and agreed upon the terms, we can begin to work on making your ideas come to life.
If you have a room in your attic, a bedroom or office for example, it can often be freezing cold in winter and boiling hot in summer. We can insulate the room to prevent heat loss and moderate the temperature throughout the year. Our experienced fitters can also add dormer windows, create extra storage space in the eves or install an additional en-suite at the same time, maximising the space in your home whilst adding value.

Supply and fit new gas boilers
All new Grade-A boilers must achieve an efficiency rating of 92-94%. Older gas boilers are much less efficient than modern alternatives, with some efficiency ratings as low as 70%.
Having an old boiler is literally burning money for nothing.
We can supply and fit the most economical boilers available, with the correct heating controls to ensure your heating bills are as low as possible.
We offer advice on the best package of boiler, controls and installation to fit your budget and lifestyle.
Combining an efficient boiler, correctly set up and fitted alongside insulation and draft proofing will ensure your heating bills are greatly reduced – and also reduce your carbon footprint.
There may be government grants available to cover the cost of boiler replacement. The eligibility for these changes all the time but call us for the latest information and advice.
Fit Solar And PV Panels
Solar Panel is becoming one if not the earth’s fastest-growing source of renewable energy and is the energy source of the future. You can turn that free sunshine into electricity for you to use and it even works great here in the cloudy United Kingdom.
Solar Panels are made up of a group of little solar cells that are spread over a large area and when light hits a cell, you can start producing electricity for you to start using.
The team here at Eco Wirral Homes can help you easily install both roof and ground-mounted solar panels by top-quality manufacturers.
Once set up you can start reaping the many great benefits that come with having solar panels from reducing the costs of your bills, generating green electricity that doesn’t damage the planet over time and becoming more self-sufficient!
Solar panels are also very low maintenance, you will only have to check them for any potential dirt over a period of time as dirt can potentially stop generating as much electricity as you would like.
