Yeah, I would have thought the same. I'm hoping to convert the attic, put a winding stairs in and extend the roof at gable end for some more space. Hoped I'd get it all for 20-25k but looking at some of these posts, I'll be way off.

Is underfloor heating worth it?

Did up my own place. Didn’t bother with it. Packed out place with insulation. Not something I look back and said I should have put it in.

I have it in my house all downstairs. It can be slow to heat up the place so you really need to give it a blast in advance but once it does, it's the business. Hot tiles in the bathroom and heated wooden floors underfoot Heart plus, obviously no poxy rads. 

Place is like a sauna the next morning too (with the heating off).

Anyone changed to the air to heat system? 
The heating in my gaff has never worked properly (as babbs will testify to) so much so that the entire ground level rads never heat up. Not too much of an issue as most of the living is done on the second and third storey but Im toying now between selling up or doing up the place.

I have it since we built the house it’s excellent mine is air to water so I have no boost option.
I don’t find I need to put it on up stairs as I find the heat rises from down stairs.
It also ensures you have hot water all the time.
My only down side is you become used to the constant temperature and even though it’s lovely and warm you can find it a bit chilly at times and if you want to increase the temperature it takes about 24 hours in this situation I just put on the fire rather than turn it up.

It’s when I go to someone else’s house I really appreciate how good it is as you can find the house quite cold when the heating isn’t on especially when you wake in the morning

so if it gets a bit chilly you have to wait until this time tomorrow to heat up? Or does it keep the temp constant regardless pf the temp outside? 

Oh and as an edit, any f**ker on here in this line willing to give a completely non committal qoute, let me know.

Yer we have it also and much the same as you really . 
To be honest takes about 90 minutes to really heat up then that's it for the day and like you said come down in the morning after the heating has been off for 12 hours and it's still warm .

Just to be clear I find it excellent when it feels chilly in reality it’s not chilly it’s just I’m used to it the temperature is at around 19 or 20 degrees inside.
It’s keeps it constant it only kicks in if it knows the temperature is below the required temperature that is set on the thermostat.
There is an external thermostat that speaks to the system.

But if you do feel it’s chilly it takes about 24 hours to notice the difference in my house ( 3500 sq foot for a reference)and mine is air to water not oil.

I had underfloor heating running off geothermal in my house back home. It was an excellent system and I only used to adjust the temperature twice a year max. I also got an air to water system including underfloor installed in another house I built. Great system also

What I would be wary about is installing underfloor heating in a house that's not adequately insulated as its being mentioned that you wont feel instant heat off underfloor heating. This isn't a flaw in underfloor heating as if your home is insulated & ventilated appropriately it wins everyday for me

Same - have it all downstairs in the basement.
It’s the absolute business in the mornings getting out of bed and in the bathroom.

Just have it on low for 8 months of the year and it heats the whole house.
