Hi guys,

I hope I'm in the right place to ask for some help understanding how I'm going to setup my new heating system.

Next year Easter, I'm gutting our home. Its an old Victorian 4 bed house with a cellar. Here is what I want to to.

1) Boiler / Tank - Electric version to manager underfloor heating instead of radiators. - 3 / 4 bathrooms. No radiators. What brand should I consider? I want each floor or even each room heat controlled via a smart phone.
2) Should I plumb the underfloor heating throughout the house or buy electric mats? If I plumb it, can the heating per room be controlled? I have a nest already but is getting more nest per room the answer?
3) I am planning to put the boiler in the cellar but the WiFi signal isn't great down there. Is this going to be a problem? Eg. The heatlink I get with the nest connects to the boiler, so does every nest i have around the home need a heat link? I doubt the nest on the top floor with communicate with the boiler very well. I'm confused.

Some suggestions from you guys would be awesome to help me design this without bashing my brain too much.

Thanks a bunch..

Best advise is to get a good heating engineer in early to discuss your options. It will really need somebody to have eyes on site to assist properly.

We recently installed heat interface unit and it works perfectly so far. You can easily change the temperature, it's super simple in usage
