To me there is nothing quite like getting out of a cozy bed and stepping onto a warm floor.
Here at Bellaugello Gay B&B near Gubbio in Umbria, we have specified underfloor heating for all our suites, including their bathrooms and also the main dining room. Over a layer of sound deadening we have laid panels which hold tubes which spiral round every room. The tubes hold water which is heated in cooler months by our wood and pellet boiler. Water circulates at no more than 34ºc The floors which will be tiled using locally manufactured ceramic and cotto, acts like a huge heat store keeping the rooms warm and as I said utterly delicious to step or lie on.
Yesterday the tubing was finished in the Mirror and Diva suites, and we have now moved downstairs to the dining room and kitchen. On monday we start insulating the roof to keep our precious winter heat in and also to ensure that with the summer sun the two suites remain cool.
Progress here is constant and we fully expect to be on schedule with the remaining suites and dining room in time for Easter which is early this year falling on 4th. April.
