Keeping warm in winter
Just watching an advert for some insulation company on TV, he advised that they recommend 27cm of loft insulation Now that's a foot in old terms.....Seems our loft's certainly under insulated So who's been in their loft recently to check ....before the snow comes?

Is this a good topic?:

Did mine last year
I topped my loft up last year and have yet to notice the difference, the heating is still costing a fortune!

Gas up 20% per year ?
We had the gas man out about the new boiler, now whether you believe his sales talk or not, to be honest he wasn't really selling he reckons that we should all be budgetting for a 20% increase per year over the next 5 years - that's a hell of an increase ! Anyone else had any info ?

Life .... Risk it today :)

Thats not
even 4% p.a. ..... with CPI at 5.2% p.a. last month and 5% p.a. this month it seems about what would be expected ... More lagging William !! Ian

Not supprised
Gas up 20%? i am not surprised at that, when the government relise that we cant afford all the rises it will be too late. GB will be broke. The fat cats just want to get fatter, the government should grow a pair and stamp it out but cant see that happening as they dont really live in the real world. Get ready for more deaths as people cant afford to heat their homes this winter or buy the food needed to fight off colds and flu, we just send money to other countries, give money to banks, fight other peoples wars.
