Re: Solar Power

Re: Solar Power

If you have a grid tied system properly sized then you are insulated from the price increases. If you ask EON for more capacity than you currently need then you have some expansion for the future...

Re: Solar Power

They should have been told what to expect by the company installing the system. One thing that is not often mentioned is that shadowing the panels can have a big effect. E.g. If one panel is shadowed...

Re: Solar Power

Going off grid is expensive and when you consider the number of times you get a power outage IMO it is not worth the investment




Off grid systems are allowed, what is not allowed is hybrid...

Re: 'Winehouse' Address

Addresses are dealt with by the local council, so that is the place to go.

Re: Designing our garden and new terrace for us

At least you now have someone else's idea of what might be nice / suitable / cheap (delete as appropriate).

Re: New restrictions on energy usage? KATA Changes?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by the numbers (2652 kWh peak and 364 kWh low ???)
However if your 10 month usage is 2652 kWh then the new charges will cost you an extra 1870 fts / month

Re: Relocating to Hungary

Re: Plans for our new part roofed terrace.

I've found that certainly helps.
If they know you know how things should be done they are less likely to cut corners and try it on - but you do have to keep an eye on what they are doing

Re: Hoping that this is the correct material !

No - that is not EPS. EPS is white, very light weight, breaks easily with a snap and will break up into small bits if scraped and the bits fly away in the slightest wind. Professionally it is cut...

Re: Hoping that this is the correct material !

Re: Hoping that this is the correct material !

The EPS goes instead of the first (bottom) layer of concrete. If you are going to insulate the floor with EPS then this should go on a flat base so level off the dips with sand. The steel mesh should...

Re: Hoping that this is the correct material !

Plastic sheeting as DPC is OK. I use double thickness to be sure. Also blind the gravel with sand to better protect the DPC. Also as above if you have the depth put in some 100 grade EPS under the...

Re: Hoping that this is the correct material !

What I would do (assuming your measurements re depth are correct) is flatten the sub soil and then check it for level and fill in any hollows with sand and remove any high spots (or fill with sand to...

Re: Plans for our new part roofed terrace.

You can check for dips with a bit of string, get someone to hold the string against the floor with their finger nail (the wife is good for this) and you pull the string tight and hold it against the...

Re: Plans for our new part roofed terrace.

The normal length for lambéria (the planks you have on the roof) is 4 M. I suspect you have the joints on top of the joists.

At this point you should be measuring all of the terrace against the...

Re: Plans for our new part roofed terrace.

When you are discussing the matter with the builder have a copy of the plans with you to keep the...

Re: Plans for our new part roofed terrace.

I see what you mean.

Do you have plans with measurements on it rather than a picture (artists impression)

Worth discussing this with the builder.

Does the water pool in a dip in the floor?...
