a.s. move this to the correct forum if this is the wrong one...:)

i am looking to buy a house with underfloor heating on the ground floor and normal gas central heating radiators on the upper floor

i think the underfloor heating is electrical and the property looks as if it has a solid floor from the estate agents website

i cant view it or get further details for a couple of weeks but need to know if possible in advance the pro's and con's

i would like to know of any of you chaps have this type of heating and what your views are on heating performance and comparible cost to running against normal gas central heating

Age of the house? Most post-war are likely to be solid floor. If installed from newly built I would guess that it would be a wet undefloor system as it has rads on the floor above.
If it's a wet system then should be quite efficient but all depends on age and Building Regs in force at the time (for insulation etc). Electric likely to be more expensive to run but everyone uses heat differently so hard to make a judgement unless more info available.
