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.
