House insulation types
The level of insulation in your home will have a big effect on how big a stove you need to heat. Here is a bit more information about we've broken down the different types of home. If you can't find an exact match then just pick whichever seems closest:
Uninsulated: is either a townhouse with double brick walls, single glazing, uninsulated roof, and poor draughtproofing, or a farmhouse with stone walls (and the rest of the details the same).
Uninsulated Townhouse with cavity: has cavity walls, single glazing, 50mm roof insulation, and poor draughtproofing.
Renovated Townhouse without cavity: has double brick walls, double glazing, 100mm roof insulation, draughtproofing and floor insulation.
