    Recently moved into large open plan bungalow
    Previous owner did a lot of work on the property
    Walls down rewired etc
    But when it came to finishing the central heating they seemed to loose interest a bit
    The house has an Air source heat pump which works well
    The issue is the flow and return pipes to the radiators are copper and come from the ceiling down the wall to the radiators
    Can these be replaced by HEP and sunk into the walls
    Aware there will be plastering to which is not an issue as the place needs redecorating
    Would this be a plumbers job or a general builder

    Thanks

    Depends on the wall type. If they're stud walls then not an issue, if they're brick and plaster then bigger issue as they will need to be sunk deep enough and covered to avoid any condensation/expansion issues.

    Plumber to do the pipework, plasterer to do the plaster work.

    Builders build and that's where they should stop, invariably they don't.
