    mr central heating

    I bought a bunch of rads from these guys in Glasgow. When screwing in the valves no two matched. By that I mean some still had say 2 threads showing on the valve when tight and others the valve nearly disappeared inside the rad. One was so bad I had to flip the rad upside down and swap side...

    Hi there. If I were to run 12-15 Mains T&E cables in the same conduit as approx 10 6 core alarm cables is there a chance of false alarms as a result of capacitive coupling? If so are there any steps I can take to reduce the chances? Regards

    electrician quote

    Is the garage insulated? The fridge freezer may defrost in the winter if its too cold. Check the climate class of the appliance. Better luck with a single freezer and single fridge rather than a fridge freezer

    Replace back boiler with gas fire front with wood burning boiler stove. Possible?

    What tank do you have in the sitting room is it a full blown hot water cylinder or something? I can't get my head round how someone would fit any kind of tank in that room. You say upstairs so surely an airing cupboard in a bedroom would be the logical location?

    Council contractor wants to replace conventional boiler with combi

    Get your own place then you can get what ever boiler you want. Then again you would be paying proper rent or a mortgage so would have to just put up with those mountain shaped radiators you speak of. Nah best to stick with your subsidised rent and a free boiler
