    OK I changed the audience so it may or may not work. Was chaos out there for about 45 minutes. Lots of water lying around on the driveway but presumably no damage. Ted hasn't checked the garage...

    And this is one reason why I would never, ever have a ducted heating unit in the roof. Similar thing happened at my daughter's house, but it's not a trussed roof.

    Schweigen and Qasair are both good domestic brands that have remote fans, but are exxy. In the shorter term Bellini is going to fix, but longer term we may need to review what we're doing.
