    Hi all, I wonder if anyone can advise.
    We bought a 1930s property and decided to sleeve off/bridge the airbricks that were already there to ventilate the underfloor.

    I heard that the cavities need ventilation too? Will bridging the airbricks afect the cavities?

    We are planning on installing cavity insulation and that’s why we are bridging the airbricks so the EPS beads do not fall out.

    I keep reading negatives about the insulation however we live in the southwest with properties either side of our external walls.
    My assumption is also that if the is no moisture penetrating the external walls(let’s say they are suitable rendered) then the cavity does not need to whisk away any dampness/water away from the internal wall and so can be filled?

    any discussion on the above would be greatly appreciated

    Petra
