we have a Combi boiler one side of the house (in the utility room).
the HW pipe runs across the loft, don through the former boiler
cupboard, under floorboards to kitchen and bathroom.
The loft run must be about 6-7 metres.
We have noticed whne temperature starts dipping (as it has lately) the
HW temperature does too. In summer it was too hot to touch. Now it's
uncomfortably hot, but you can touch it ....
The insulation on the (22mm) pipe in the loft is standard grey foam.
two questions :
1) Am I correct in presuming this temperature drop is caused in the
2) What can I do to upgrade the insulation ? I peeked in the F-in-Ls
loft a while ago (new house) and he seems to have circular casing
around his pipes, about 10-15 cm in diameter.
Thanks in advance.
