Underfloor Heating - advice please

I've just removed the mostly rotten, suspended floor in my living room and want to put in UFH. I'm planning to put DPM down first, then 50 or 100mm of Kingspan/Celotex with 50mm against the walls to create a well for the concrete slab.

They are generally well-read on environmental/organic/sustainability issues. http://www.manor-farm-organic.co.uk/ I also know that the people running these companies are PO-aware...

Multi-fuel burners: post-peak fuel efficiency

During the summer I had a conversation with a very practical acquaintance of mine who told me that the reason Rayburns, and by implication multi-fuel burners in general, are inefficient (Rayburns in particular) is that they are designed with a compromise in mind. In this case, multi-fuel is taken to...
