Underfloor heating costs will differ depending on a variety of factors, including the type of underfloor heating (UFH) you specify and whether you are working on an existing home or building a new home. 

Underfloor heating has become very popular in recent years, typically offering a more efficient means of heating your home, comfort under foot, while also freeing up the wall space that may have previously been taken up with radiators.
