1. Damp Where buildings suffer damp, installing cavity wall insulation can be the worst action a homeowner can take. The very nature of the product can be its own worst enemy. The materials used to fill the cavity exacerbate the problem, keeping moisture inside the building and preventing it from drying out. When asked can cavity wall insulation cause problems, we’d advise that the first problem to look out for would be damp. There are two main types of damp which affect buildings, both of which are aggravated by cavity and wall insulation and can be key problems with cavity wall insulation:
Humidity in indoor environments is generally caused by building-related issues or from exposure to driving rain. Most common in homes is elevated relative humidity, which is triggered by poor drainage systems, leading to dampness in substructures such as lofts and cellars; the resulting humidity causes water vapour to be transmitted into the building’s interior structure. Where cavity walls are insulated, this dampness is not only contained within the building’s inner skin and therefore unable to dry, additionally, the moisture also transfers heat loss, leading to homes which are cold as well as damp.
Condensation also comes from water vapour within a building. The moisture in the air condenses on cold surfaces such as windows, tiles, work surfaces and bathroom furniture. The damage caused by condensation is very similar to that caused by humidity and can appear in similar places because it occurs in dead air pockets that accumulate in both horizontal and vertical corners. In many cases, compressed insulation, especially between walls and between walls and ceilings causes a decrease in thermal resistance, leading to water damage in the indoor environment. In the most severe cases, where moisture is not dealt with quick enough, mould and mildrew develop, bringing with them many health implications from spores. When we answer the question of can cavity wall insulation cause problems, many people struggle to believe that your health can be at risk as well as your home. This is why we carry out the removal of cavity wall insulation!
2. Health Implications Asthma is one of the most common health problems with cavity wall insulation associated with structural dampness. It is worsened, and in some cases brought on, by condensation, moisture, humidity, and water intrusion, all of which contribute to indoor moisture. Mould infestation is also a major trigger for asthma. Aside asthma, other health concerns relating to mould are infections, allergenic or immunological illness, and non-allergic illnesses. Asthma is also triggered by the sensitization of dust mites accruing in the humid, wet regions of a structure. Another health effect associated with structural dampness is the presence of bacteria in an indoor environment; bacteria requires water to grow and multiply and is a source for the transmission of diseases, therefore putting occupants’ health at risk by water intrusion into the indoor environment.
A 2009 World Health Organisation report entitled Children Living in Homes With Problems of Damp states: ‘Excess moisture leads – on almost all indoor materials – to growth of microbes such as moulds, fungi and bacteria, which subsequently emit spores, cells, fragments and volatile organic compounds into the indoor air. Moreover, dampness initiates chemical and/or biological degradation of materials, which also causes pollution of the indoor air. Exposure to microbial contaminants is clinically associated with respiratory symptoms, allergies, asthma and immunological reactions. Dampness has therefore been suggested to be a strong and consistent indicator of risk for asthma and respiratory symptoms such as cough and wheeze.’ As soon as you start noticing problems like these, waste no more time asking other companies can cavity wall insulation be removed, make sure you get in touch with us ASAP before things get worse. Our insulation removal service will benefit you in no time.
3. Financial Implications When asked can cavity wall insulation cause problems, many people would initially think of the financial implications. The way in which finance can become an issue is because: – Costs of initial installation – Higher energy costs – ‘trapping’ the damp often causes buildings to feel colder after installation, prompting the homeowners to increase thermostatic control of their heating system and have it switched on for longer periods of time – Costs of remedial work to the property – redecoration etc, not to mention the costs of the remedial work of removing the damp itself – Higher energy tariffs- where the installation has been carried out through a scheme such as CERT, the energy company will insist on a higher energy tariff as a means to recoup their costs – Inability/grave difficulty in selling homes with inappropriately installed cavity wall insulation
4. Climate Change can worsen these problems Changes to the climate also aggravate the problems caused by cavity wall insulation. Wetter summers mean buildings have fewer opportunities to dry out, while colder, drier winters mean heating draws moisture through capillary action into the fabric of the building, making the existing problem even worse. Consumer magazine Which? conducted an undercover investigation to ascertain whether cavity wall insulation is being installed appropriately for consumers. They invited eight companies to give a quotation on a property which had been assessed independently as not being suitable for cavity wall insulation, to install cavity wall insulation. All eight companies said the property was suitable for cavity wall insulation and quoted prices for the work. It is highly likely that these eight properties, had they received cavity wall insulation, would have to pay a great deal for more the removal of cavity wall insulation.
