    Underfloor heating is bad for you as it promotes vanes in your legs and feet to grow too large and creates a lot of problems later in life. a better trade off is in wall heating and that is why the new ECO all in one lego houses use in wall heating systems.

    Quite the opposite MSHunter research in the 70s concluded that underfloor heating was not a factor in varicose veins.

    And underfloor heating existed before America even existed...



    *** Though I could see the increased warmth causing a perceived increase in discomfort from those already suffering from dilated veins.***

    True and thats not the issue.

    True but we are talking about market penetration in the private sector and amount of studies done, not where it was invented. Roman bathhouses must be swimming in your head ;P

    Think even earlier ;)

    If it's set up too hot then there can be issues, but that's been against every building-reg in the civilised world since whatsit and whatsit in the 70's, or at most within a decade...
