We all want to stay nice and cosy in our homes. But when the winter nights come in, and it's time to settle down on the sofa, we often have to resign ourselves to our central heating or fireplace to keep warm.
Over time, this inevitably leads to extortionate heating bills. That’s why people have started to turn to more cost-effective measures to help their home maintain a comfortable temperature. Insulating wallpaper and liners offer an easy way to do exactly that.
By naturally insulating the warmth inside a room, they are superb at maintaining a comfortable temperature all year round and reducing heat from escaping from windows, ceilings, or unsightly cracks in the wall.
Read on to find out how insulating wallpaper works and which type is best for you.
What is insulating wallpaper?
Insulating wallpapers and thermal liners are specially designed to maintain a comfortable temperature in a room without needing to rely on central heating. In short, they are designed to be thicker than average wall coverings, often with additional linings using specialist insulative materials, to stop heat from escaping through walls.
Simple to apply, thermal wallpaper will better insulate the room or home it’s used in as well as minimising condensation and combating common household issues like damp and mould.
As an easy and efficient way to save on energy bills, they've become a popular choice as they effectively pay for themselves over time by reducing the need for heating to be switched on as frequently or as high.
Which insulating wallpaper is right for me?
There's a wide range of thermal wallpapers and liners to choose from, all of which cater to a range room sizes and surfaces.
Take a look for yourself and find one to fit your unique requirements.
Wallrock Thermal Liner
A standard-bearer in wallpaper insulation, the Wallrock Thermal Liner has been specially developed for energy-saving and thermal insulation on walls and ceilings.
The Wallrock Thermal Liner gives some much-needed breathing room to the walls and saves around 15% in static heat loss. You'll also find it great for combating mould growth as the natural rise in temperature it provides prevents dampness from building up over time.
Suppose you're looking for a textured finish to the wall. In that case, the product is also designed to be used in conjunction with paint or paste-the-wall wallpapers such as the Wallrock Fiberliner Original and Wallrock Power Adhesive.
Once a wall has been fitted with Wallrock Thermal Liner, luxury and heavyweight paste, the wall coverings become simple to place and a breeze to remove if you ever fancy a change of scenery.
Wallrock KV600 Thermal Liner
If you consistently find that a room is exceptionally cold all year round, you may want to try the more advanced Wallrock KV600 Thermal Liner which offers better thermal performance than the standard version.
It's 3.5 to 4 mm thick, which offers twice the coverage of standard Wallrock Thermal Liners despite being only 25% heavier. Plus, it helps alleviate condensation and mould problems even faster by raising and equalising the room temperature.
The wall's cooling effect and the cold air currents within the room are reduced to create a more natural overall temperature that both pleasant and inviting.
Wallrock R300 Liner
Heat escaping through cracks or dents within a wall is a common complaint in both old and modern homes. The Wallrock R300 Liner is a specialist product that makes covering cracked surfaces a breeze.
Perfect for rough and damaged plaster, cracked rendering, wood panelling, or plasterboard, this insulating wallpaper gives excellent results on problem surfaces in mere moments.
It is also very durable and will help with any lighter cases of mould formations that have cropped up through damaged parts of the wall.
Wallrock Cosy Liner KV300
Like other products from within the Wallrock Thermal Liner range, the Cosy Liner KV300 offers excellent thermal and condensation protection and is an efficient way of saving on energy bills.
Not only does the 1mm thickness of the Wallrock Cosy Liner KV300 help to keep heat inside a room, but the product is also fully breathable and helps get rid of common household condensation problems that can become quite troublesome over time.
It is best suited to those pesky external walls that always seem to lose heat. However, keep in mind that it is not recommended to be used in fire escape routes from inside the home unless the surface is treated with a fire-retardant covering.
Erfurt Mav Graphite Plus Insulating Lining Paper
Utilising graphite's natural reflectivity and combining it with polystyrene cells, Erfurt Mav Graphite Plus Insulating Lining Paper is a fine option to keep a room warm in an environmentally conscious manner.
The product is equivalent to having an extra 26cm of concrete on your walls, making it much more difficult for heat to pass through. Furthermore, the product is also useful in disguising uneven wall surfaces that can be an ugly sight in any home.
Erfurt Mav Red Label Insulating Lining Paper
Protecting against both internal condensation and mould growth, Erfurt MAV Red Label insulating lining paper is twice as thick as standard polystyrene so provides double the insulation.
Laminated with reinforced lining paper, it is also treated with fire retardant making it a safer option than others on the market.
