In my absence…

Category: Site Announcements May 18th, 2012 by mbc

In my absence the quality of the advice on this site has certainly improved… 😉

johnrush a ‘Chartered Building Services Engineer’ has made a couple of interesting comments on the forum.

Firstly on the heating-help-needed topic, John has written an informative piece on insulation. I particularly like his holistic ‘six-sided’ approach to insulation:

Try to think of your house as a box and you are trying to heat the inside of it. The top of the box is the easiest to deal with as it is relatively easy to add insulation to the roof space. Just dealing with the loft will not help much as you have only tackled one of the six sides.

John then goes on to add to the discussion of heat-pumps with some clear and informative information.

Thanks John!

New bed
Somewhat in anticipation of being able to take up residence we’ve bought a great new bed for the barn.

Insulation ~ Phenolic foam
Phenolic foam insulation is made by combining phenol-formaldehyde resin (note the presence of formaldehyde, a hazardous chemical and known carcinogen), a foaming agent and a hardener.
