Better Homes Yorkshire, The Nowells Case Study

Energy efficient improvements have been carried out in the Nowells area of Leeds.

External wall insulation (EWI) was fitted to a number of homes in order to reduce heat loss through the walls. The properties' external fixtures were then covered with a brick effect render in order to maintain the original features of the property and fit in with the rest of the street.

The photos below show the work being carried out at a variety of different stages.

EWI slows down the rate at which heat escapes through the walls of your home, helping to keep your property warmer and lowering your energy bills.

EWI installation takes around four weeks to complete resulting in a home that is more comfortable to live in and fuel savings of up to £475. Other benefits include better weather-proofing for your home as well as a renewed aesthetically pleasing appearance.
