  1. No, havent paid for this piece of work yet. Thanks for the input!
  2. Thanks Mark, I really thought so too. Unfortunately the contractor believes its totally acceptable. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't being OTT about it. I know most laminate floor specs state 2/3mm over 1m and going by that I don't think any part of the floor is acceptable
  3. Hey guys, What would everyone deem acceptable in terms of the level of flatness on a finished floor? I have several sections sections of floor on a new build that have falls in or around 12/15mm over 3m sections. Several of the rooms also are falling from one side of the room to the other. No humps or high spots just a gradual fall. I should mention this is all after a layer of levelling compound was added by the contractor who did the floors. Is this acceptable? I cant find anything in UK or Irish regs regarding floor levels or flatness. Thanks in advance!
  4. Id be hoping the house is drier than that, we've been sealed since last April, painting been completed now with about 2 months. Hopefully the figure will continue to drop!
  5. Thanks Iceverge. I would also have believed that 'exhaust temp' would have referred to the temperature of the air leaving the unit being expelled outside, after the heat exchanger. I think what's throwing me is the depiction of 21degC in the manual illustration, as surely you wouldn't' have 21degC leaving to atmosphere? Your room temps would have to be sky high at that stage surely? My humidity levels are also quite high at 79%, but I'm putting this down to the length of time the unit has sat idle before being switched on and commissioned. I suppose the best thing to do is let it run its course in low mode and monitor my supply temps as I gradually increase the temperatures in the rooms. The thought of paying to heat the air, and then paying to have it expelled to atmosphere is giving me nightmares ?
  6. I fitted 2x speakers in our open plan living/dining/kitchen. It was a bit of a last minute decision, so the budget wasn't really there for an all out system. I went with a Fenton av360bt amplifier and 2x Power Dynamics 100w speakers, all purchased from HIFI Tower. The amp has a built in FM transmitter, but it isn't great due to the fact its located in my machinery room in the centre of the house surrounded by block walls. Not really an issue as we intend to use it with a Google home type device which will stream radio over wifi. The Bluetooth range is good and have had no issues getting my phone connected to it. Quality seems ok and I was very impressed with the speakers considering the price of them. Will probably upgrade them in the future but for now they're absolutely perfect.
  7. Hi all, First post here and I must say what a great community this appears to be - I wish I had found this forum when I started my self build in 2020 rather than now when I'm a few months off moving in! Some of the posts and level of detail in them are absolutely brilliant! On topic however, I have a Domus HRXD MVHR unit I purchased from BPC back in April last year. I fitted it and plumbed it up, but the time has only come to get it going this week as we finally have heating on! I have balanced the system according to the figure provided by BPC with a calibrated anemometer. The system has been on for 24 hours, and my exhaust temperature is reading about 10deg C. According to the manual, this should be reading the temp of the air coming back to the unit from the extraction side. The 12deg C in the attached photo is the intake temp. from outside, which I think is possibly being a bit generous with it being the start of Feb! Room temps are all set at 17deg C, and all rooms are genuinely at this temp. I have measured the air coming from the supply ducts with a calibrated thermometer and it is reading 12-14degC. Is there typically a longish heat up time for these systems, or do I potentially have an issue? I have contacted BPC and waiting to hear back from the technical team, but thought it might be no harm to check out some real world experiences here. Any feedback is much appreciated, especially from those of you with a Domus unit! Thanks, Brian
