I am in the process of extending my house and can't make up my mind if it's worth getting under floor heating. The house will have concrete floors downstairs and well insulated. I have read pro's and con's on the internet and don't know whether it is really worth it. Some say that if the under floor heating leaks then it's a massive cost and head ache to lift the flooring and fix and others say that there are no joins in the tubing so they can't leak unless you stick a nail through it. Few who have installed under floor heating say that you just get a trickle/or bit warmth under the floor and on your tiles/wooden floor and others say it heats the rooms really well.
If I compare it normal radiators then any heat or loss of heat will be in the room or through the walls into the next room. So you can heat the room in winter pretty well. But with under floor heating, any loss of heat will be under ground and then it will take significant amount of time to go through the concrete floor and through the tiles/wooden floor before the room heated up.
So could you please help, if you have had under floor heating, is it worth it or better to stick with normal wall hung radiators. I am going to put radiators upstairs on the first floor, again for the reason of any leeks.
Thanks in advance
