Ofgem have reviewed the BUFCA ECO Technitherm guarantee and consider it to be an appropriate guarantee for hard to treat cavity wall insulation for homes in flood risk areas. Technitherm is the only cavity wall insulation to pass the Building Research Establishment (BRE) Flood Resilience test requirements for homes in flood risk areas.
The BUFCA ECO Technitherm Guarantee now includes coverage for:
Cavity wall insulation installations (standard)
Hard to treat cavity wall insulation installations, as follows:
i. where the cavity is less than 50mm wide;
ii. where a chartered surveyor has reported that the cavity wall is not suitable to insulate with standard insulation materials or techniques due to severe or very severe exposure to wind driven rain or risk of water penetration, including flood risk areas;
iii. in uneven cavities in walls constructed of natural stone or from natural stone outer leaf and block or brick inner leaf;
iv. in a building with 3 or more storeys where each storey has cavity walls and where the building is not more than 12 metres in height;
v. where a chartered surveyor has reported that the cavity wall is not suitable to insulate without substantial remedial works to the building. This includes overcoming failed wall ties.
