This is my first message on this site but i have been reading the Forums for the past few weeks, I was all set to start insulating my house internally with rigid phenolic insulation until i started to read about all that can go wrong,
Our house is 130 years old with high ceilings and can be quite cold in the winter and expensive to heat,
My plan for insulation was to place insulation in between a timber frame and then add insulated plasterboards to eliminate cold bridging, is this a bad idea / are there too many risks involved? Also why is this the most popular form of internal insulation if it is so dangerous?
External Insulation is an option on the gable end wall and also the back walls but not on the front wall as it is a brick finish but it is very expensive and i have doubts about the long term effects,
Ijust want to do the right thing and forget about it i really don't want problems down the line,
Thanks in advance for any advice,
