    Wilo Pump Setting

    Thanks for the detailed explanation. So if I'm reading it correctly, control mode 1 might be the way to go?

    Wilo Pump Setting

    Thanks for this information. After looking into the weather compensation unit, the problem I will have is positioning the sensor on a north facing wall. It will be very complicated and will involve a long run of cabling. I balanced the radiators when we moved in last year, and I'm generally...

    Wilo Pump Setting

    Hi, We have a Kingspan Tribune Xe unvented hot water cylinder with internal thermal expansion. The boiler is an Ideal H24. The house was built in 2019 and the heating system has 2 zones, upstairs and downstairs, feeding normal radiators with thermostatic valves. The Wilo pump in the airing...

    Downlight Heat

    I can definitely touch anywhere on the unit when it's been on for a good while, but I wouldn't want to grip it for too long - although I could. This seems to match your experience so gives me confidence that it's within a normal range. Thanks for the advice.

    Downlight Heat

    Thanks for that. I've no idea where to find the recommended wattage for LED bulbs for this fitting. The only thing I know is that they were only fitted 2 years ago. Does anyone know where I can find that information?

    Downlight Heat

    Hi, I posted a question about the recommended wattage of LED bulbs recently and the answers made me check other fittings in the house! I've noticed that the Deta downlights in the bathroom get very hot. The bulb, holder and chrome facia are all affected. Is this normal for this type of...

    Spotlight Bar - LED Light Bulbs

    Thanks @333rocky333 for your help and advice, I'm very grateful. The fitting does indeed have rear vent holes. I've managed to source some 6W R63 bulbs with a good light output, so I've decided to go with those. I'm more than happy that there's plenty of ventilation around the bulb, so the...

    Spotlight Bar - LED Light Bulbs

    Hi, The paperwork supplied with the fitting is very generic which is why I don't necessarily trust the recommendations. This and the fact that its advertised as a Spotlight Bar, yet the bulbs they recommend are not spotlight bulbs... that says it all really! The stickers on the fitting say 40...

    Spotlight Bar - LED Light Bulbs

    Hi, Can anyone help with suggesting LED light bulbs for this... Healy 3 Light Black Spotlight Bar | Dunelm The box recommends E27, Round LED, Maximum 5.5 Watts. Ideally I would want higher wattage bulbs as I'm concerned that the enclosed design of the light fitting will reduce the spread of...

    UPVC Door Restrictors/Stays

    Thanks @ronniecabers, they look good. I notice that they also do a 135 degree version. Do these work just as well, or would you recommend I stick to the 90 degree version? Thanks again!

    UPVC Door Restrictors/Stays

    Hi, I'm looking for some good quality door restrictors/stays for our UPVC french doors. Having looked at lots of versions on the internet, they all look very similar but I expect the quality is variable. Can anyone recommend any particular make? I'd rather spend a few extra quid to get a good...

    Attaching Tall Unit to Plasterboard Wall

    Hi, it's a internal stud wall between bedrooms. I would only be able to attach the batten to 1 stud due to where the unit needs to go. Not heard of kitchen hanging rail before, can you point me in the direction of an example? Cheers
