That isn't what he said at all. He said that he insulated it to
150mm, but did not say what was there before.
If it was nothing, then of course there was an effect because the U
value is reduced from about 2 down to less than 0.4
Do you know about how to calculate thermal conductivity and use U
He said " I insulated my loft to 150mm. I had lots of insulation over so
doubled up over the main bedroom where I sleep. his bedroom is warmer in
winter, and thankfully last summer a lot cooler."
He makes the point:
"I could always sleep while neighbours complained they were too hot to sleep
in similar houses to mine."
How many house do not have insulation in the loft these days? Either he and
all his neighbour never had any at all according to you. Please try to use
Such a sense of humour. Did you belly laugh at the last episode of the
Vicar of Dibley? What a hoot!

OK. However, the starting point was not stated. If it was nothing
to 300mm, it suggests that 150mm was never tried in isolation, so
doesn't then mean a great deal.
The discussion was never about "none" vs. "some". I completely agree
with that - going from a U value of 2 down to under 0.5 is clearly
The point is about going beyond that when the walls still have a U
value of 2 and always has been.
Oh my gawd. Of all the useless berks I have ever employed, apart from
'media and womens studies', computer scientists are the worst of all for
sheer inability to achieve anything of a practical nature.
I might have guessed.
All theory and no comprehension of real life.
Not necessarily. Or, in other words, you're wrong again. Trinity College
Dublin does a BA in Comp Sci, and many Universities do combined BA Comp
Sci/Maths, Comp Sci and Accounting, etc. Come on old chap, try to broaden
your knowledge. Ditch the chip on your shoulder.
