Upgrade central heating

    I have a 4 bed room bungalow that I renovating.

    The central heating needs to be upgraded. I can't go underfloor heating because it's a slab foundation.

    I want to move away from kerosene to electricity heating.

    Is this a good idea?

    I would think carefully about that. Electrical heating in the form of electric heaters or indeed a heat pump is likely to be considerably more expensive than kerosene to run.

    If it were me, I would probably look to repair the current system for now. Heating systems are a changing space at the moment.
