Talk: Aircrete: A New Lease of Life for Cavity Walls
Cavity walls are the most common construction method in Ireland, but with heat loss through walls accounting for up to 35% of a home’s total heat loss, there’s room for improvement. Aircrete blocks can transform this traditional form of construction into one which can compete with other more modern forms of construction. This seminar will show how a simple change to introduce aircrete blocks in the construction can significantly elevate the thermal performance, and give traditional cavity wall construction a new lease of life.
