    Fixings for kitchen wall cabinets

    Hi all, Sorry if this is in the wrong forum section - let me know if I should post elsewhere! Currently fitting a new IKEA kitchen, they come with the metal rails, which you fix to the wall and "hang" the cabinets onto...

    Controlling Omnie UFH with Nest - wiring (including bonus question!)

    Hi all, I have an existing Baxi EcoBlue Advance combi boiler controlled by a Nest 3rd gen via Heat Link. I’ve just installed an Omnie UFH system (wet, boiler fired) and am trying to connect up its wiring centre, with it being controlled by the same Nest (as opposed to Omnie’s own thermostat)...

    Fused spurs

    Hi all, bit of an ‘is this ok’ question, or could you suggest a better way....!? Want to add a socket in a hallway, but the tidiest socket to spur from already has a fused spur from it, supplying an alarm. The alarm spur is fused at 3A so not suitable for a double socket, but I don’t want to...

    Insulating under suspended timber floor... maybe?!

    Hi all, Just had a room stripped back and skimmed, and while deciding on flooring options the idea of restoring the floorboards came up. They’re not in bad condition so that part of it should be relatively painless (if dusty!) but as we’re on the ground floor we’ll need to insulate. It’s a...

    FCU Feeding 2 Double Sockets - OK?

    Hi all, I had a similar thread a while ago but not wanting to necro-post it and also to try and ask a more specific question, I wanted to start a new one. So: I have a double socket in a hallway, with 2 cables going into it, so assuming that it's either part of a ring circuit, or the mid-point...

    Spurring sockets

    Sorry if treading old ground but I've found past posts with different answers on this (some years old so that may be why!), also I think I may have some other questions depending on the answer! I know that if you take a non-fused spur from a socket on a ring circuit, you should only take one...

    Best option for wiring a bathroom cabinet w/shaver plug

    Hi all, We're replacing our bathroom and have just removed a wall mounted mirror cabinet which had a couple if built in lights (incandescent) and a shaver plug. We're replacing this with a similar (but much more modern!) one that has LED lights and a shaver plug. The cabinet says it requires a...

    Pyronix Prox Reader - Occasional tone

    Hi all, just wondered if anyone had come across this. We have inherited an alarm system in our new house and are pretty close to having it programmed the way we want it. The alarm is an Accord XPC for which I have the manual. What I can’t find info on is the attached prox reader (used with key...

    What's going on with this phone wiring?!

    Hi all, Just moved into a house and am trying to work out how the internal telephone wiring is done. Had cable at my last place so done very little with BT wiring in the past. Facts: There is a master socket and 3 extension sockets (though 2 of the exts are in the same room... I'll get to...

    Inherited a seemingly ancient CH system...

    Hi all, We've just moved house from a small place with a combi, to a place with a cylinder system. This type of system is all new to me, so apologies for asking any obvious questions! Firstly, does anyone by chance know the approximate age of an Ideal Classic RS Room Sealed boiler? Corgi Home...
