    My bungalow plumbing <sigh> anyway most of the central heating lives in the concrete floor. Most of it doesn't seem to be lagged either and just in some poxy crumbled sand surrounding.

    I am currently gutting our ensuite starting from scratch. Towel rad currently feeds from the floor. And the bathroom is about 10metres from the heating feed in the loft. I could run a flow/return to this rad lagged in the loft and drop down the wall and feed bedroom as well. Would i be improving the efficiency of this feed by doing so? I mean considerable or negligable?

    TIA
