The (new build) house we have just bought has underfloor heating
downstairs and a conventional TRV/thermostat arrangement upstairs; I
guess this setup is quite common. However, the thermostat (and the
uncontrolled radiator) are on the galleried landing, which receives a
significant amount of heat from the UFH in the hall below. Therefore
there is a tendency for the bedrooms to go cold when the UFH is
running, unless the thermostat is turned up.
Is this a sensible arrangement? I would have thought the thermostat
and uncontrolled radiator ought to be in a zone isolated from the
influence of the UFH.
