TANKS & PIPES

Fasten loft insulation all around and on top of your cold water tank to protect from freezing. Do Not insulate directly underneath the water tank. Wrap water pipes to protect from frost.

Electricals

Insulation must not be laid over electric cables. Carefully, lift electrical cables above the insulation so that they do not overheat. Ensure there are no loose or disconnected wires and re-route them if necessary. Insulation should be kept at least 75mm away from recessed light fittings and hot flues to prevent them from overheating.
