I have some guys coming tomorrow to insulate my attic. I have a water tank in the attic and I asked them if they want me to empty it in order to move it during the flooring and insulation process.
They informed me this was not needed as they would floor and insulate around it. I wasn't sure but they said that this was normal practice because some heat was needed to come up through the ceiling to prevent the water tank from freezing during the winter.
To me, this sounds incorrect. I would have thought that this was going to be a source of heat loss.
Can we have a vote from the experts on what is standard practice?
