I'd love to get feedback from anyone in the know...We are renovating a Victorian red-brick terraced house and have to install central heating. Keeping the old character and features of the house is very important to us.
We're on a gas line. We want to install new cast iron radiators in some rooms (replicas, not original salvaged ones) but our builder, who specialises in restoring old houses, has tried to persuade us to go for really modern looking 'Solo' rads with great heat output. He reckons the house will be cold and we'll end up using a lot more energy trying to warm the place if we go with the cast iron.
Can anyone offer useful advice or expertise?
