    Horizontal unvented cylinder in loft conversion

    Hello, me after some advice again. After my last post, I've come to the conclusion that instead of relying on a combi to supply 2 bathrooms with hot water, it would be better to go for an unvented hot water tank. The next question is where can I put it? Ideally I'd like to have the boiler in...

    Recommendations for flooring that won't fade in sunlight.

    Hi. We're going to be installing bi-fold doors and a large roof window in our extension, so it's going to let in a lot of light. The flooring that we put down is going to run throughout the downstairs of our house and potentially lie on top of under floor heating. I'm looking for some...

    Retrofitting underfloor heating - Good or bad move?

    Hi. (First post, so go easy on me ;)). We live in a 1930's terraced house and are planning to do some major renovations to our downstairs in the spring. I've had at the back of my mind installing wet UFH for some time (leaving the radiators upstairs), but have a few complications that I'd...
