Insulation for Exterior Walls If your attic is properly insulated and sealed but your home still feels drafty and cold in the winter or too hot in the summer, you may need to add insulation to the outer walls.
Spray, Blown-In, and Batt Foam insulation are some of the most effective ways to insulate walls. Insulation conserves energy, lowers heating and cooling costs, decreases noise, and even prevents dampness.
Benefits of Exterior Wall Insulation
Heating and cooling is more efficient The movement of heat into and out of the home is thwarted by good insulation. Your home will be more energy efficient all year round as a result of this. Insulation keeps heat and air conditioning in the house, reducing the amount of work your HVAC system has to do and lowering your energy bills. Insulation on external walls creates a protective barrier between your living space and the elements. Insulating your walls can help by restricting outside air flow from seeping in, allowing you to save up to 40% on your heating and cooling expenditures.
Insulating the outside of your walls helps to elevate the internal wall temperature, lowering the likelihood of condensation accumulating. It also acts as a waterproof and impervious barrier to penetrating moisture.
Improved Acoustics Insulating walls can help to lessen annoyances from the outside world as well as sound transmission from one room to another. You can reduce sound transmission and increase the enjoyment of every space in your house by insulating your walls. When your inside walls are insulated, you won't have to worry as much about the TV being too loud and bugging the rest of the members of your home because the sound won't travel as far.
Improved Moisture Control Moisture trapped within the walls of your home can cause a variety of issues. If this water condenses inside the walls, it can lead to damage, mildew, or even frozen moisture patches that stain when they melt. Insulating using a vapor-resistant membrane bonded to your insulation decreases condensation generated by moisture from daily activities such as bathing, cooking, and washing attempting to migrate through your house's walls to the colder outdoors.

Some Useful Side Info About Wall Insulation
Thickness of External Wall Insulation Depending on which EWI system you choose, the insulation thickness can vary. EWI typically adds roughly 100 millimeters to your home.
Is the insulation on the outside of the walls fireproof? EWI systems of high quality are not fireproof but are all fire resistant. This means they were designed to have a very low combustion level, which was approved by an accredited fire classifications expert and determined to be safe and fit for purpose. If you're interested in seeing what this looks like here's a cool video demonstrating the effects of EWI!
