And you don't think you should have thought of this while the house
was being built? Or is this for mommy?
Underfloor heating is way better than radiators. It heats the whole
room evenly instead of heating one tiny corner of it. In order for a
radiator to work you need a good convection current and radiators are
not always placed in a good place for this. Underfloor heating has no
such problems. I'd imagine underfloor is more efficient too.
It's better under a concrete floor than a suspended board floor
