So do you think having Economy 7 storage heaters fitted downstairs and not using the panels there would be a good idea? It's basically 1 room with a hallway and kitchen so 2 heaters or 1 large and 1 small would probably be plenty?
My uncle and aunt lived in a 1970s bungalow on an estate where the developers had put in ceiling heating. It used to amuse my practical father a great deal - he'd always been told that heat rose! In lots of these houses, the ceiling heating broke down or was replaced by storage heaters or, where this was possible, by gas central heating.
