Installers often specify boilers that are larger than necessary. Darren McMahon, Marketing Director at Viessmann, explains why this is undesirable. When specifying boiler size, it’s time for a rethink. There is a widespread tendency in the UK to oversize boilers and it is a bad habit to just replace on a like-for-like basis.  It’s understandable that installers should prefer to equip a building with too much, rather than too little potential heating power, but the kilowatt requirement is often exaggerated due to rule of thumb methods, such as heat output calculation +10%.  Historically, boilers were oversized because we programmed our heating to come on twice a day. The boiler was expected to heat the house very quickly in the morning. With houses more effectively insulated nowadays, and with less heat lost overnight, there is no need for such overheating in the morning to reach the target temperature. Most modern homes’ heat demand is actually very modest. The average heat loss for a UK property is no more than 6-8kW. However, as insulation materials in buildings improved, overheating has become widespread.   Even the UK’s older housing stock, with its poorer insulation and hig...

This article originally titled, Recognizing Clandestine Indoor Marijuana Grow Operations for Property Insurance Claims and Property Management Professionals – Part One of Three Parts, was originally posted on LinkedIn. Parts two and three of this article will also be reprinted at another time. The elderly landlord couldn’t feel much worse as he stood outside of his apartment complex in Jacksonville, Florida. He was waiting for his defense attorney and the expert she was bringing with her to inspect apartment 257. The landlord took great pride in the apartment complex that he and his wife had owned and operated for more than 30 years. It was not only their pride and joy…it was also their nest egg for retirement and the inheritance they wanted to leave for their children. Now all was in limbo. At his age, he would not have time to make it up. The former tenant of apartment 257 was suing them for an incredible amount of money, claiming that the landlord was negligent and that the tenant had been personally injured by exposure to toxic mold. The landlord’s insurance policy would not cover the amount the former tenant was asking for. He and his wife stood to lose everything. Sure, th...
