Energy Efficiency Initiatives

Reduce your carbon footprint by installing Dryvit's external wall insulation systems. 

External Wall Insulation (EWI) systems provided by Dryvit provide an extremely effective method of insulating properties constructed from solid walls, or those with cavities that are categorised as "hard to treat". 

It is estimated that approximately 35% of the overall heat lost from properties in the UK dissipates through un-insulated external walls. The team at Dryvit understand the importance of ensuring properties perform, and our systems have been designed to solve this problem. 

There are multiple benefits for choosing EWI systems on your project: 

Heat Loss Prevention

EWI is one of the most effective ways to prevent heat loss in a building.

By insulating the facade, the building is warmer and it is easier to achieve a comfortable internal temperature. 

Reduction of Condensation

Condensation occurs when warm, moist air comes into contact with a cold surface. Whilst a little about of condensation within dwellings is normal, excessive amounts can lead to more serious problems such as mould growth. 

By keeping properties warm, Dryvit's EWI systems, prevents excessive condensation, protecting properties from the damaging effects. 

Extends the life of a building

Wind, rain, snow and sunlight over time can affect a property but insulating your walls can help reduce the amount of damage that these elements can course. Protecting your walls with EWI systems, means protecting the integrity of your structure - causing a long term financial benefit.

Quality Standards and Available Funding 

The industry standard which all EWI installers must be certified and compliant to.

PAS 2030 is the industry specification for which all energy efficiency installers must be certified to, and compliant with, when carrying out energy efficiency measures under government initiatives such as ECO.

Here at Dryvit we work with a number of PAS2035 /2030 certified installers. Get in touch to find your local installer. 

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) 4 is the long awaited continuation from previous ECO schemes.

ECO4 places a legal obligation on all energy suppliers to deliver to a target of energy efficiency measures to domestic properties across the UK. The main aims of this scheme are: 

  • To help fight against fuel poverty within the UK
  • To support government carbon reduction targets 

The grant mainly focuses on low income families, the vulnerable and fuel poor consumer groups. Dryvit systems are in pole position to support with the thermal upgrades within the UK. Get in touch with a member of our team to explore the systems available. 

Local authorities, combined authorities and social housing providers are encouraged to thermally upgrade housing stock

With a core focus on energy inefficient social housing stock, this funding aims to raise the energy performance of D, E, F and G EPC rated properties to a minimum band of C. 

The scheme intends to fund up to 50% of the cost of the measure and is part of a wider scheme to take houses around the UK out of fuel poverty. This scheme also acts as a supporting mechanism to the government's commitment to NetZero by 2050.  

There are many routes to funding whether you are a private home owner or landlord requiring assistance with your project or a Housing Association/Local Authority seeking ECO funding. The supply chain network Dryvit UK has in place can help you facilitate a simple route to funding. As a system designer we work with utility companies, managing agents, main contractors, surveyors, partnering technology companies, PAS 2030 specialist installers and insurers to deliver funding and a quality installation of our systems to meet your requirements.

Dryvit would welcome the opportunity to assist you in assessing the suitability of your project.
