my flat is ground floor and has concrete floors throughout. it
currently has central heating run from a year-old combination boiler.
the central heating, i think, was installed some years after the
property was built, as there are twin pipes running along the bottom
of various walls, linking the radiators.
i am planning to replace all the floors in time, and was wondering
whether underfloor heating is an option? my kitchen has just been re
plastered and has no radiator, so i was going to start in there, using
it under ceramic tiles.
has anybody any experience of underfloor heating? is it the future?
should i use a water system and run it from the combi boiler? or go
electric (and use the combi solely for hot water).
i'd like to end up with an energy efficient home, and am prepared to
spend if it will be worthwhile. it would also mean i can get rid of
all the radiators and ugly pipes running along the walls!
