Cavity Wall Insulation & Extraction
A staggering 35% of heat is lost through the walls of a dwelling, which is more than in any other area (assuming you have loft insulation). This statistic proves that it is extremely important to reduce the amount of heat lost through your walls for a generous contribution to savings on heating bills.
Government-backed insulation grants can help save money on the costs of energy-efficient improvements for your home such as cavity wall insulation. Find out if you’re eligible through our Insulation Grant Guide:

By taking some time to apply for the ECO scheme, you may find that your insulation replacement/installation costs could be 100% funded through the scheme’s goal of making homes more energy-efficient.
Here at Mass Foam Systems, we install cavity wall insulation using a bonded bead product called “ThermaBead“.
ThermaBead‘s polystyrene bead insulation is a new and innovative product that has proven its worth in the insulation market. Customers are loving this product due to the reliability of the product and cost-savings seen on heating bills.
One customer of Thermabead even said:
Using quality insulation products, like ThermaBead, to retain heat within your home is important if you are looking to see real reductions in your heating bills.
One question we get frequently is “How does Thermabead compare against other insulation materials in the market?”. We’ve done our research and found the following…
|Fills hard-to-reach places||/||X|
|Minimal installation disruption||/||X|
|Reduce heat loss rates by up to 70%||/||X|
|Breaks down over time||X||/|
Here’s a video from Thermabead themselves to showcase the installation process and how their product works.
The key benefits of this cavity wall insulation product are:
- 70% heat loss reductions
- 20% more energy efficient than rock wool and glass wool
- BBA and BDA approved for cavity walls over 40mm thick
- K-value of just 0.033
- Minimal disruption
- 30% fewer drill holes compared to standard solutions
Many dwellings since the late 1930s have been built with cavity walls (a gap between the internal and outer walls). This cavity has proved to be inefficient for insulating and does not meet current building regulations and standards for today.
To solve this rising issue, a product was developed by a company called ThermaBead. This cavity wall insulation product allows the ability to insulation cavity walls that have a space of over 40mm wide.
The product is both KIWA and BBA certified and has gained an incredible reputation throughout the UK as a trusted insulation product for cavity walls.

Why cavity wall extraction may be needed
The UK generally has a damp climate and exposes your home to high-speed winds and icy conditions. These conditions can take a toll on your brickwork and often lead to gaps/holes which can degrade and reduce the effectiveness of your installed insulation.
The result of damp insulation within your cavity wall.
The problem with exposed insulation (typically fibreglass) is that once it becomes wet, it is virtually impossible to dry and thus leaving you with poor cavity wall insulation. To be straightforward, wet/damp insulation = increased heating bill costs for the same internal temperature + expensive structural damage.
Cavity wall extraction would be required to remove the damaged insulation to allow for new, more resilient insulation material such as Thermabead.
