Great article. I wish there was more that could be done to preserve the features of older houses in all areas. We did much to retain and restore the features in our previous Victorian property. We debated whether to take the front door with us when we moved as we loved it so much! We wish we had as the new owners replaced it with a UPVC one :(.

If you are considering installing underfloor heating in an older property, make sure you check out the range of specialist retrofit options available. Look out for low-profile underfloor heating systems that are laid over the existing floor, include floor sensors to protect sensitive floor coverings, and give you the option of individually controlling the temperature of every room in your home.
