Under-Floor Heating

More progress! Last week the under floor heating was laid. We didn't realise quite how this would be done but were amazed there is so much polystyrene involved, about 20cm thick base on which the heating pipes are run. This makes the total thickness of the floor about 50cm once the screed is in.

The pipes themselves are set out in several spirals covering the entire ground floor with a small gap where the shower will go. Eventually there will be thermostats in each room to control the temperature individually.

Despite telling us they would, the heating guys didn't come back to hang the solar panels so they will have to stay in the house when the next company come to put in the screed. They will come back once the screed is in to fire-up the boiler as this has to run to dry everything out.
