    Tar like substance dripping

    During the hot weather we recently have had, some tar like substance looks to have leaked from these supply connectors: I assume this is not normal in hot weather and I should get the DNO out? What is the correct term for those connectors? Thanks

    wireless alarm help! new install spec!

    Me neither, so take my advice with a pinch. The best advice is to get the pros in for some quotes (and advice), then decided what to do. I wouldn't bother with the extra contacts/plus for a non-monitored install, just use the two in the package for front/back doors. Protect the upstairs hall...

    Automatic bypass valve

    When only the HW is selected the CH 2 way valve is correctly closed and HW open. However the radiators upstairs get warm with the heat coming from the return pipes. So, in summer we turn off the TRVs on the rads. The manual bypass is 1 turn open, and you can feel the pipe below the bypass...

    Reconnection of Electricity

    You are missing the point in both cases, the ex-tenant is legally liable for the costs of replacing the window, or getting the DNOs equipment made good. Just like a Window company, the DNO are not going to chase the tenant to pay up, you have to stump up the cash to get it fixed, then you...

    Boiler only fires for CH

    Hi, Just moved into a new house, and haven't had has before - so sorry for the dumb question. When we put the CH on via the timer controller, the boilers fire up and heats the rads and water no problem. (Same as above when putting both Hot Water and Heating on) However, when we select...
