Damp walls are thermal bridges – If moisture collects in the pores of the wall, more heat is transferred than would be possible if the cavities were filled with air. The thermal conductivity of the wall decreases enormously with dampness.
Tests have shown that a damp content of 5% in a plain brick wall, for example, can lower insulation performance by up to 50%. This is particular pertinent where cavity wall insulation has been installed because when the insulation is wet it loses its thermal value. Many homeowners do not realise this fact.
Preventing water ingress through exterior walls and bricks can reduce energy consumption by up to 30% or more depending on the porosity of the brickwork.
A secoTHERM treatment will improve the thermal efficiency of your home by keeping it dry offering energy savings up to 30% and more depending on the porosity of the brickwork.
