Radiator pipes - concrete floors

Recommended Posts

I've had a couple of quotes regarding re-piping my central heating. I've got concrete floors downstairs, plumber A has suggested cutting into the concrete and putting the pipes in there, covering it with sand (I think) to protect it. Plumber B has said it's better boxed in and running along the skirting. he said it'd lose heat if it was in the concrete.


Who is correct? Any help appreciated

I like A better really. It's bound to lose a bit of heat anyway, just as nice to lose into the floor where it'll very gently heat the room from the ground up - bare feet might be nice with this option - as to have it boxed and lose it to the air.
