Electric heating under fire (again)

in Part L

Well, I hate to say I told you so but we’ve been here before.

Back in November 2002, I wrote an article for BSJ* pointing out the iniquities of the factor used for electricity in the old Part L.  Seems Code for Sustainable Homes still has a flawed factor included and a similar loophole to the one I was worried about then still exists.  That was over 5 years ago.  Yikes.

Let’s hope this time the error gets fixed…

*BTW, if you click through and read the article, can I point out that the typo in the first paragraph was entirely BSJ and not me.  It still rankles with me (and woe betide you if you send me an email with typos – I am liable to correct it and send it back to you.  Is this a character flaw?).
