Hi, I have a renovation project on a solid walled detached property. It’s in a conservation area so any work has to be done internally.
It’s basically a shell now so best time to do any disruptive work.
I was planning on having insulated plasterboard installed on battons against the external walls. However, I read a Guardian article recently that said the figures quoted as possible savings on Green Deal/EPC sheets (Loft insulation, new boiler etc) have been greatly exaggerated compared to actual tests.
With the possible problems caused with insulating solid walls – damp, condensation etc, is it just worth foregoing the insulation and just using normal plasterboard with an air gap from the battons?
Getting very confused….
Any help appreciated.
