    under carpet heating?

    going to get new carpet in the main room, we just have the natural wooden floor looks nice however the front part of the house is north facing and its blimmin cold even in the summer

    Undercarpet heating do these really work? its got be cheaper than using central heating to heat the house, when just using 1 room?

    something like this Underfloor Heating Mat 150w/m - 1.5m - Carpet/Timber on eBay (end time 28-Sep-10 12:27:01 BST)

    Can't imagine that using underfloor heating in a carpeted room is an especially good idea. Electrical fault+carpet=bad news!

    Always fancied it in a bathroom though!

    Seriously, i think warming a floor with electircal heating will cost more than using the GCH tbh

    underfloor heating that is piped to the central heating is bang on , never been a fan of the electric underfloor heating as it used to be so expensive to run. When I looked a few years back it was 0.5 kw a square meter iirc.
