Heating system for your self-build or renovation project is a key decision, but where do you start? We explain all in this in-depth guide.
Choosing a Heating Emitter
The three main options for heating emitters are:
- Underfloor heating: This tends to be the emitter of choice for many self builders and extenders, for the comfort, efficiency and the extra wall space it gives
- Radiators: Radiators are cheaper than UFH and choice is as much about aesthetics as it is by the amount of heat needed
- Skirting board heaters: These have a lot to offer, especially in retrofit projects, and are something of a halfway-house between UFH and radiators
