Acoustic Insulation for Concrete Floors

    Soundproofing a concrete floor Most buildings with concrete floors have enough mass and density to block the transfer of sound waves. Conversation and TV noises generally wouldn’t pass between the floors of buildings that use concrete. The only significant noise issue that you should expect is impact sound. This is generally when an object such as a chair or item is moved around the concrete.   The best way of soundproofing concrete floors to reduce impact sound is to use a layer over the concrete flooring. The soundproof layer is installed over the concrete and below the floor finish . The type of soundproofing you use to block impact sound through the concrete is made from materials that absorb impact sound before it transmits into the concrete.   How effective is concrete floor soundproofing? Soundproofing a concrete floor will reduce impact noise, airborne noise, or both.  Different systems offer different levels of noise reduction depending on the level of

Installing External Wall Insulation

  External wall insulation is essentially a layer of protection for your property, which has multiple benefits. Such as the property retains much more heat on the inside, therefore feeling a lot more comfortable. In addition, the heating system should work less hard, helping save money off heating bills. External wall insulation ( EWI ) is the preferred choice to upgrade the thermal efficiency of properties with solid walls, made using a single layer of bricks. Most UK houses built before 1930 have solid walls and EWI is the ideal option if there are no restrictions on the property . Uninsulated walls allow around a third of the warmth in a house to get out. Making your central heating system work harder to maintain the desired temperature. External and  cavity wall insulation  will help to keep heating costs low because your boiler won’t work as hard wasting energy to keep the ideal environment. Benefits Installing EWI doesn’t interrupt the residents within the property you’re in th

Everything you need to know about air source heat pumps

How does an air source heat pump work? An air source heat pump takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a compressor. It then transfers the heat to the heating system in your home.  They work like refrigerators in reverse.  The air source heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air into a liquid refrigerant at a low temperature.  Using electricity, the pump compresses the liquid to increase its temperature. It then condenses back into a liquid to release its stored heat.  Heat is sent to your radiators or underfloor heating . The remainder can be stored in your hot water cylinder.  You can use your stored hot water for showers, baths and taps.  The pump uses electricity to run, but it should use less electrical energy than the heat it produces. This makes them an energy-efficient way to warm your home. Air source heat pumps work even if the temperature is well below zero. Ground source heat pumps also harness natural heat and increase the temperature to w
