    We had a Tastic in our bathroom and pulled it out when we renovated. All it did was let a lot of cold air fall into the already cold unheated bathroom, and I think a 2700 ceiling is simply too high for the heat lamps to work inefficiently. We installed under floor heating. Best thing ever.

    That's pretty much how I understood things John, but we need new curtains and any extra helps with thermal efficiency. If possible I would prefer to get something that combined both properties. It was interesting that the mesh and net privacy curtains did so much acoustically but they were mine and an Op-Shop purchase and don't go with the new paint colour

    Sorry The window is double glazed and I want the extra heat retention in winter Re the honeycomb blind. With no carpet and no curtains the room is far too lively and I want the new curtains to absorb a lot of room reflections. Carpet will be done as soon after lockdown as possible but curtains have a long lead time it seems. On my own I'd just hang carpet squares or old woollen blankets but that is not an option. Although IKEA has something I have just looked at ...

    So the old curtains are down and the room is painted. While Cecile is in charge of the looks department I would like to maximise any thermal benefits with the new window treatment and at the same time maximise the acoustic properties of the curtains. Do cellular / honeycomb blinds work as well as a heavy woollen blanket and are they cost effective? I want a reasonably deep pelmet treatment to stop convection currents over the window. If possible I want the curtains insulated with some of...

    Speed of electron flow perhaps? Isn't this why processors are paralleled?

    Question should be moved to the Heating and Cooling section. More expert people here than I am and you may get a better answer in the right place.

    Do everything else first Double glazed windows if possible sealing all leaks etc; before going the extra yards with the cladding. It's hard to keep a lightweight house temperature stable, that takes a lot of mass to store the energy, probably several hundred tonnes of it as in earth berming etc. What's your heating/ cooling??

    Batts between the studs, then RFL housewrap, then battens and cladding. Adding the Foilboard on top of the battens only if funds available and insolation due to aspect was a problem or you really wanted to maximise R-value in the walls

    If both arms have turned black it is unlikely the shot in the single arm is to blame. Nobody is talking about the heart flutter/palpitations problems associated with the Pfizer shot or the increased risk of a heart attack or stroke either.

    Yes a double layer of RFL with an airgap between them. If we were doing it again and were cashed up we would use 20mm Foilboard tho. We just did the last wall and used foilboard rather than Sisalation and it is far more effective.

    When I said "Bangers" I was thinking about Chevy V-8s and Holley carburetors. Won't diesels run at all on H2??

    We used a combination. Fibre batts in the walls and ceiling but some small areas had a double layer of Foilboard and an airgap. We did sheath the house in ply but that was mainly to get it back to lock-up ASAP. We then did RFL wrap, batten out and clad with corrugated steel with a second layer of RFL. More to keep out the summer suns heat tho and if you are mainly shaded from the Western sun I don't think you would need to go that far. Roof has R2.5Anticon and R3.6 batts on the ceiling

    We have known for decades that even old fuel guzzling bangers can run just fine on Hydrogen, we just need to accept and pay for the transition to a new technology.

    One trick is to make sure your hood is wider than your cooktop so you can catch the steam/fumes as they rise. So, 900 cooktop means minimum 1200. Wider needs greater airflow as well
