Can filling the cavities lead to moisture crossing to the inside wall?

With polystyrene beads this cannot happen because the material does not soak liquid. Drinking cups are made from it because of this quality. When you drink from such a cup you notice the heat from the drink cannot penetrate the thin wall of the cup. This will give you some idea of how little heat can pass through a 2½ to 4 inch thickness of the same material in a wall cavity. Every bead has a single point of contact with each of the surrounding beads, allowing the cavity to breathe and any moisture penetrating the outer leaf to drain away immediately.

How will I know that enough bead has been blown into the wall and that the job is being carried out properly?

Beads cannot be compressed into small bales to take up less space or 'fluffed up' to take up more space. If not enough material is injected into the wall then the top of the cavity will be without bead. When the filling process is complete you can inspect the cavity and see for yourself the result of the installation. We will show you the beads in the cavity before we block the drill holes.

Because you are not compressing the material within the cavity, do you need to drill as many holes as other systems where a given density must be achieved?

No, much fewer holes are required. We drill mainly at the top of the area we wish to fill and under windows. In a typical gable wall, only about half the number of holes are required to blow bonded bead as are needed with other systems.

Here's How Ecowarm Can Make Your Home
The Ultimate In Energy Efficiency With High Performance Cavity Wall Insulation

Bonded bead cavity wall insulation is suitable for all homes with cavity walls and Ecowarm offers a complete package to our customers - from expert advice through to project completion.

Here's a step-by-step guide showing how Ecowarm installs blown bead cavity wall insulation.

  1. Cavity is measured and assessed by our surveyor. A series of 22mm holes are drilled on the exterior of the house in strict accordance with the NSAI-approved drilling pattern to insure all areas of the cavity are filled. Holes are drilled along the top of the building, at both sides of each window and door, and under each window, vent and flue - these holes are at a maximum 600mm apart.
  2. The cavity is then filled using compressed air to pump insulation into the cavity through each hole. The bead enters the wall; the insulation is coated with a waterproof adhesive as it passes through the bead gun.
  3. With every hole pumped, the cavity is now completely full of insulation. All holes are filled in using a sand and cement mixture. The exterior of the house is then cleaned up. And there you have it! The installation of your insulation is complete giving a guaranteed fill and bonded cavity for a warm, energy efficient home
