    Neither Tom, was about the affects of insolation on thermal mass, both passive and active. All within an insulated envelope.

    Steamy,
    1) we won't have any more valves etc than if it were a "bog-standard" central heating system.
    2) running pipes under the roof has proven only minimally more expensive than not bothering ... (granted it's a new roof)
    3) we're on a slope, and deep digging not an option, so this is also testing the use of insulation to force a long path from ground to slab
    4) once it's commissioned we'll have, at the very least, a series of fuel bills to compare before-and-after ... not a game changer I know, but informative nonetheless assuming other variables like occupancy, unit price and weather have been taken into account.
