  1. Apart from physically cleaning the outside of the unit and checking for obvious muck on the fan blades is there any other servicing needed of this (or any other) ASHP?
  2. That's interest. Very very rarely does the built in sensor kickin. My utility/clothes drying room is a long way from the Sentinel Kinetic MVHR, so I ran double pipe work, but often it feels 'steamy' to me but the boost does not kick in. For the wet rooms, have to manual kick the boost in, using a (long) momentary push of the boost switch (I have the unit in control mode 2 with the link install - I think)
  3. Just to say about from a relay issue, the two Sunamps in our holiday cottage (with UFH & Triple Glazing) have worked fine and no complaints of a lack of hot water (from up to 6 guests). so still 'marry'
  4. While it certainly gives Egger a get out, they seem unfazed and suggested their product will still be fine. Have to agree as three of the rooms where not exposed to extreme weather and yet still are suffering floor bounce/flex.
  5. Sorry old photo, should have been more clear. I was trying to show lack of weep-holes on roof side
  6. Further to: Both my stacks (above the lead apron) seem to gather considerable moisture (a separate thread). This moisture then exits via the above lead apron weep-holes and drains onto the bricks below the lead. The weep-holes are only on the gable ends (none on the roof side of the stacks). Question is it normal practice to have weep-holes on the gable ends rather than the roof side? I ask, as I'm wondering if the weep-holes had drained on to the roof, then the considerable moisture would be hit the non-porous tiles and be quickly removed via the guttering etc. Instead it appears to me that the moisture is feeding the bricks below the lead apron. Thanks Paul
  7. Further to my builder is now this damp on condensation due to my late decision to insulate the attic. Can anyone recommend a condensation consultant/firm who via studying photos, drawings etc can advice if there is a chance condensation is the cause please? Happy to pay for a detailed report. Thanks
  8. Odd my builder and the posi-joist manufacturer both are blaming the abuse the egger boards took from 6 months of bad weather as being the source of the floor movement/bounce. While Egger themselves remain adamant their product would be fine. (It did swell a tiny bit on a couple of exposed edges but that was about all)
  9. Can this thread remain on the subject 'Floor bounce - PosiJoist Floor Vibration checks' please ? Many thanks Paul PS My floors seem worse as time passes or it is cold outside (not sure which)
  10. 3 years on, drawing combustion air from my ventilated under floor space works fine. If I was doing it again I'd make the vent a bit bigger, as although I made it 150% (I think) over sized. I wonder if the tight right angle I'm make the air flow go through is slightly limited draw
  11. 600mm posis standard spec - bloody awful for me really regret them.
  12. The 'cross-talk' I put down to the internal leaks within the MVHR - there are plenty of routes for the stale air to be sucked into the fresh air feed within the device. Mine you havn't noticed it recently
  13. Light shower overnight and 0.5 litre collected on East stack so assume same will have entered West stack. ?
