Heating at Christmas


Recommended Posts

....And remove loft trap if any header tanks in loft, especially if loft floor is insulated (usually is).

Insurance companies advise this now. Loft temperature follows outside (not inside) temperature within a few degrees (measured it).

(Some years ago I did what RL rightly recommends, but nevertheless had frozen/split mains pipes in loft causing rapid devastation to most of house.)

Fortunately for me the majority of my properties are flats/ maisonettes without tanks/water pipes in lofts.

Of those that do have water tanks/pipes in the loft......

* The tanks are located directly above the hot water cylinder and the loft floor under the cold tanks is not insulated .

* The loft pipework is all fully insulated and pipes run very close to the tanks.
