Spray Foam Removal
Spray foam insulation seals the roof space restricting airflow to the roof and timbers causing condensation and placing the wood at risk of decay and rotting of the roof supports. It makes the home harder to sell and for a prospective buyer to get a mortgage.
The Elite Home Group offers a quick and effective service to remove spray foam insulation from loft spaces to an acceptable level for mortgage lenders to assess the condition of the roof and the roof timbers. We strongly advise homeowners against removing insulation themselves because it could “damage tiles, electrics and other materials”. Some spray foam is “toxic to touch and breathe in” and requires professionals.
Cavity wall insulation is a great way to save money on your energy bills, prevent heat from escaping through your walls and keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in the summer.
The government has recommended cavity wall insulation as a primary measure in Government energy efficiency initiatives, including the Energy Company Obligation, designed to provide low-cost and free insulation to eligible and qualifying households, helping to reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
When the cavity wall insulation is defective, homeowners should remove and replace it.
Solar Panel Installation
Generate your own electricity and save money on your energy bills with Solar PV
Solar PV technology uses photovoltaic cells to convert sunlight into electrical energy. Solar PV systems can be used for various purposes, including generating electricity, heating water, and cooling buildings.
The use of solar PV has been growing rapidly in the United Kingdom in recent years. According to the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the amount of installed solar PV capacity in the United Kingdom increased from 1.5 gigawatts (GW) at the end of 2013 to 6.9 GW by the end of 2017.
We recognise that the UK is facing significant challenges in its desire to retrofit its housing stock to meet government targets for fuel poverty and carbon reduction and also in its desire for everyone to live in a warm, comfortable and energy-efficient home.
