NIA raises awareness of insulation measures

Green GB Week is designed to highlight the opportunities clean growth offers the UK and raise understanding of how business and the public can contribute to tackling climate change.

During Green GB week the NIA will be raising awareness of the multiple benefits of insulation including Cavity Wall Insulation (CWI) which can pay for itself in less than 3 years, to External Wall Insulation (EWI) which can transform the appearance and curb appeal of a home whilst reducing bills and making them warmer, to Internal Wall Insulation (IWI) which enables homes that do not have cavity walls and cannot be treated with EWI to benefit. There are also lower cost, simple measures such as topping up loft insulation and draught proofing to prevent cold entering around doors, windows and floors. 

The National Insulation Association (NIA) represents manufacturers, system suppliers, installers, contractors and fixing and component suppliers of insulation measures and product types in the UK.  With millions of householders lacking adequate home insulation, the industry can play a vital role in contributing to the Governments ambitions to reduce carbon emissions and eradicate fuel poverty. 

We have a national network of NIA Members who meet our membership criteria and a strict code of professional practice which includes a complaint and disciplinary procedure.  For more information visit
