Shadowsnake,

Insulation works by trapping a layer of air. It is like when we wear clothes, it's not the clothes themselves that keep up warm but the layer of air it traps between out clothing and our skin.

Some types of insulation also include a silvery reflective surface to reflect back the infra-red heat back into the house. This however cannot be done for cavity walls.

Any idea if cavity insulation actually works.

In the UK with grants it is pretty cheap if you have a void cavity.

I cannot however find any stats on the internet to say if it improves thermal efficiency and what types of insulation is the best.

Anyone have any ideas?

BTW the link on your site to EST goes to an error page, thought I'd let you know Wink

I feel your pain but the water will have more chlorine than standard tap water so the plants won't like it.

I hate to sound like a greenie but do you really need your own swimming pool?
