How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
Just to say that if you have a wood burner with a back boiler I believe it's actually more efficient to run underfloor heating than radiators as it takes less energy. Don't know if that info is any use whatsoever to OP but someone may find it useful!

What I would say is, I turned mine off on the 1st April to save costs and you soon notice how freezing cold the tiles are compared to when it is on. It is really a comfort but not warm you up method of heating and I had it put in when I had my bathroom installed.
You can save money on it by only laying it where you are of course likely to stand. Thedial I have to control it has a single button on t from a company called "Danfoss". It all works fine but is a bit confusing to understand and use based on the booklet, which is hard to read because it is not so well written.
Apart from that I can't say much more, but hope this helps.
Up to 15m2 you can get a kit which simply connects like another radiator.
I have laid this under the floorboards in our extension and it's brilliant.
