Unless your apartment is insulated which I doubt, you are wasting your money...thermal barriers of any kind are almost Non existent within the fabric of most TRNC built homes......Just think of "LOCK UP GARAGE "then you will have some clue to the value of C.H.in your poorly built Cypriot home ....Get it Insulated or throw your money down the drain....

I suppose it's as much use as fitting"Central Heating" in a building with ZERO thermal efficiency....but hey you know what's best .....keep ripping them off ...

It may be an expensive way of providing heat when there is little thermal efficiency in many buildings but surely it is at least a dry heat which can help keep at bay the greater danger which is dampness and mildew unlike producing more dampness by way of gas heaters/oil lamps etc.

I would definitely fit central heating it does make all the difference. However I would not buy the boiler from here. They sell the same one in the UK for 450 price here 1800. We are looking at thermal insulation for part of the exterior walls as the whole house does not need it.

Dampness and mildew would not exist in a house which was properly constructed.C.H is a very expensive way of combating the problems (Damp, Mildew) which should not exist in a well built house/apartment ....... but still they buy them, and struggle to find solutions .........?

MartinD41. I agree with what you say and I am very grateful that we have a double brick, cavity filled, on damproof property. My point is that whilst many ex pats refer to the builds as concrete tents due to their lack of thermal quality they should perhaps consider them to be also concrete sponges. Therefore what can be done in the way of remedy should first be done but followed by a form of dry heat rather than open gas flame or oil heaters which will simply reintroduce more unwanted moisture and negate all efforts for warmth and good health.

I have been in the heating trade for over 40yrs and installed 3 underfloor insulated heating systems here for friends,fully temperature controlled in every room,using top quality materials shipped from uk.Traditional pipe and radiator systems here are very inpractible and costly to run due to the poor U values of the villas

Most underfloor systems i have seen here are basic and poor quality.If Anyone is interested in my system i have some equipment here in stock (manifold pump pipe etc) and can advise on your design and help you with your installation.I am not a trader and can show you the system working in a traditional new villa here

You can only practically install the system prior to final floor finishes (tiles ,marble etc) during construction.

Its not a cheap system to install but money well spent on system that really works !

mess 4 - absolutely spot on.



The standard of construction in the TRNC is shocking...



Cavity wall - you having a laugh ? - solid breeze block with a few holes in it.



loft insulation - i doubt it, but there's no felt under the tiles either....



doors and windows properly fitted ? - probably not - i've seen many a front door that you could slide a slice of toast under..........



chuck in marble / tile floors and you are looking at a logitical nightmare to keep warm..



Quite surprising when you consider that its so cold over night between early nov and late april



As far as bunging in central heating without first addressing the insulation problem is like chucking your money down the drain....



in my 4 years in the TRNC i only once went into a house that was warm in the winter - and that was kev and dee's place - they's keep the central heating on 24/7 - the upside being a tostie home - the downside the 1,000 GBP a month heating bill....



as UP would say - too hot in

msg16...Sounds like a Roman HYPOCAUST would be the way to go,at least the walls would get warmed up as well...!!It would be looked on in the TRNC as Progress !!

Some people must have some crap construction then because we have insulated cavities (save the insulation go in), felt under our roof tiles (even the ones they missed now I've fixed that ha!), no loft insulation as we have vaulted ceilings, but as for being warm, with the c/htg for an hour in the morning, and max 2 hours at night, and the log burner going from about 4:30pm which heats the whole house well, we sit around in T shirts and PJ's no problem.

And with the hole cut in the chimney to let convected heat from the outside of the chimney liner into our bedroom, it's often too hot. In fact I'll bet I'm about the only person then to put the ceiling fan on in late November to cool down!

We run our ceiling fans on slow to keep all the warm/hot air from rising to the ceiling.

So to get back to my point..(msg4)..Unless your house/villa has acceptable levels of insulation, C/H is "NOT "cost effective nor thermally efficient. Until builders in the TRNC adopt "modern building methods" C/H is a non starter....
