    Hello, I was wondering if it was possible to tell the type of underfloor heating from thermal imaging. It's a new build house and I am yet to move in, I was told it was hot water but I have not seen any valves from the boiler to the system when I was having a look around.

    The images are from a snagger.

    Nice to see it's all lashed in, without a care for quality.

    That’s electric. You can see where they cut the mats to spread it out.

    Yep, electric. That's going to cost you a million quid to run. Doesn't look like it's heating up very evenly either

    As said, the pics are from the professional snagger, it's their job to look for things like that on a new build. The point of that pic was the thermostat, incase anyone recognised the system.
