Discuss cost effective options to heat a small temporary space. in the Water Underfloor Heating Installations area at PlumbersForums.net

Hello

I hope everyone and their families are ok at this time.
During my own self-build
I have to build a small living space (in a garage) two-story for myself and my family of 5 for 1- 2 years before I finish the full-size house. it is temporary but will be approx 30sqm meters downstairs with a concrete floor and upstairs 20sqm two small spaces on rafters and plywood. total of approx 50 sqm. it will be a very nice looking Georgian inspired build and a garage that matches that. It is in the countryside.

I have a general engineering and family building background.

What I do have is a sewage system, water and electricity (220v).

My questions is, what is the best way to organise cost-effective and efficient heat for underfloor heating and hot water for lots of showers and hot water in a few sinks.
I want to be able to have full-timer and online and phone control capabilities.

I don't love radiators myself and underfloor seems to way to go downstairs I currently use a coal stove to heat large parts of a house, I could do this again but I am open to solutions using electric heaters immersions and solar any other machines and devices I don't know about. Heat pumps likely not be cost-effective. I will be adding full insulation to the space. The solution needs to be cost-effective and use off the shelf items. Currently, weekly costs for electricity and coal is approx 50-60 pound These are the running costs. I want to beat that if I can. I don't think I want oil.

Any advice or ideas appreciated. I will be using registered plumbers and electricians where needed.

It would be great to know some of the options out there.

Keep safe all and thank you.
