Upgrading Existing Homes

Upgrading Existing Homes

At CleanFootprint Ltd we specialise in upgrading existing homes to an EU standard. We insulate your home by using an EIFS Insulation (External Insulated Finishing System).

The first step is to book Clean Footprint to asses your home, using air pressure testing and thermal imaging we can identify where air is leaking in and out of your home. Air leakage results in higher home heating costs.

Once identified we can insulate your house and attic to ensure no air leakage, thus reducing your home heating costs.

Are you prepared to be an intelligent house

External House Insulation
This process involves Insulation been applied to the outer layer of your house, (a wrap around your house) when your house insulation is completed, a high quality render (coloured plaster) is applied, giving you a complete new external finish.

Internal House Insulation
Internally we can insulate your attic. Air tightness is achieved by insulation, covered by a breathable membrane this will keep the cold air out and the warm air in. We also offer a Heat Recovery System which provides ventilation and prevents stale air; this creates a healthy and comfortable climate within the house.

All our work is tested and certified by an independent assessor to give you an energy rating, therefore making your home more valuable.

Why upgrade my home now?
From 2009 the Building Regulations dictate that all existing dwellings when rented, sold or leased will require an Energy Assessment. This rating will inherently affect the market demand for the dwelling and therefore the resale value or rental income. As with rising energy prices the Energy Efficiency will become a key concern for prospective purchasers or tenants. For the home owner this will be an invaluable insight into the performance of their home and will provide objective guidance as to how to reduce their fuel bills and improve the overall performance of their building.
