Hi, I have 5 bed house with underfloor heating on all 3 floors.I also have converted attic. UFH was installed in year 2000.
I want to put low temp rads in attic (it currently has no heating!) and feed water from UFH on floor below.

Question 1: Is this a sensible approach?

Question 2: Is this easy to do? Any decent plumber can do?

Question 3: See image from manifold directly below attic. I think I need to run a pipe from this manifold upwards to the ceiling and into the large converted attic. I'm trying to figure out where to make the hole in the ceiling - in advance of plumbing work. I've put some numbered circles on the attached picture. Where in the manifold do I attach pipe that will go up to ceiling?

NB: I also have a second manifold in another room.

From that pic, nowhere. You would need to tap into pipe prior to 2 port valve that controls the manifold.

Thanks Simon,
Maybe this second photo makes a difference? This is a second manifold in a different room. Could this be used to run up the attic (low temp rads).

I had this system drained down and serviced recently. The guy who did it has 20 years+ experience with this stuff. He indicated that it would be east to get heating into attic???

You might need an external pump depending on what the internal one is set too yes or might need balancing / setting up etc
