Hi I've got an underfloor heating system in the in conservatory which was fitted before we moved in, the system is very expensive to run and I'm looking to disconnect/ decommission the system and need advise on anything I should be doing, e.g. I'm a summing that I will need force any water out out of the system before closing off the pipes.
The white pipes on out side of the box on the far right are the feed and return pipes which will need capping I assum once system has been emptied .Image

Hmm....... It shouldn't be expensive to run!!
Is it ON all the time?? Does it not heat the conservatory?? What is the issue??

I'd be interested to know what type of Honeywell valve you have, Mid Poss or Divertor?
Can you get a code from it please?

Please see photo on label of valve.
To be honest it's not just the underfloor heating the complete system seem to be overly complex ( two heating zones, up & down stair).
We have attempted to programme the thermostats but system still seems to come on when it wants as it's fully electric the bills are overly high.

When you say it's fully electric, do you have an electric boiler & what tariff are you on?
Make & model of the boiler, photo of the control thermostats please.
