    Hi All

    We are restoring old stone house (4500ft). It has solid wall and timber sash single glaze windows.
    We have studding inside of stone wall with:
    100mm pir board in between the stud,
    50mm insulated slab-board,
    150mm insulation in the floor,
    400mm attic insulation

    We have a mechanical ventilation system installed, I didn't want 4" holes in the wall after putting in so much institution.

    The issue is deciding on what type of heating system will work best for us?
    The other half was looking for UFH downstairs, rads upstairs.
    Would A2W system work best?
    We will have a stove (boiler)in the kitchen\living area and insert stoves in other rooms.
    I would like this to be tied into the heating system too as it seems a same to have it just heating single large room.

    Other option is stove/condenser oil boiler.

    My head is wrecked on deciding what is best and most efficient system to use?
