Can I carry out a loft conversion if I have a water tank in my loft?
Your water tank provides hot water that the occupants of your home rely on. If it’s located in the loft, you have several options.
The first option is to move the water tank to a corner. It frees up space and allows you to maximise your loft. A box in the tank hides the tank without affecting the aesthetics of your new loft conversion.
An unvented hot water cylinder is a great alternative to your old water tank. It eliminates the need for a cold water tank in the loft, so you save space. They can be located anywhere, including the basement.
The best option is to remove the old tank completely and replace it with a combi boiler. It takes up minimal room and is the ideal, long-term solution for maximising space in your loft whilst improving the pressure of hot water throughout the home.
