Have been reading this thread - would be interested to know how many panels you got in order to save so many $$$$ with different quotes. How many squares are you heating? We were quoted $14 - $15K for 8-10 panels. Those floor registers I was told are quite pricey as well.
From what the guys explained to me, you can’t save $'s by getting less panels as your heating system will become ineffective. The two quotes were for exactly the same amount of panels...the cheaper one included the under floor panels. The price difference is because one company wanted our business more than the other...that what I think We just shopped around until I found what I considered a 'fair and reasonable' price. I can’t recommend this company enough...the after service has been terrific. We had a leak a few weeks ago, although they said it wasn’t the hydronics, they sent 2 guys out to do pressure testing for an hour...no arguments, just really good service (it turned out to be the upstairs toilet wasn’t installed properly).
Our house is about 40sq's living I think...never really know how to work it out
Double glazing throughout... apparently is important for the system to operate effectively. As for the amount of panels we have... (quickly do this in my head)
I am no expert on hydronic heating but I hope my experience has helped others to make a decision one way or another.
Calling Mrs B????
Just wondering about those bills and the cost of running your fabo heating system? Worth the investment?
