The DIY AC units are good. I had one in the conservatory. That way it heats and cools. Worked out £400 and cheap to run.

It boils down to this... do you want to wear slippers or not.

Not sure mate. I just want a relatively inexpensive solution to heat a room at the end of the garden that will get use all year round. It's well insulated. My only regret at this stage is that I've bought 50mm polystyrene insulation for the floor and I'm worried the heat will be wasted going through it and warming the concrete underneath.

I am a builder myself and we do a lot of floors with underfloor heating, its not expensive to run if you keep it on and steady, people say it costs a lot to run as they dont tens to use it in the most efficient way, ie turnig on and off constantly

If you have the concrete floor already down, you want to be putting polythene down and up the walls sightly, then want sheets of celotex insulation (like polestyrene with silver foil either side) which will stop the heat escaping bellow, we usually put 100mm insulation down ans a 4" strip upright around the bottom of the walls to stop the heat escaping side ways, put whichever form of underfloor heating down then 50mm of screed over the top
