    Do any sparks do underfloor heating?

    Just had a call to give someone a quote for dry underfloor heating which I declined as I haven't done it before and I'm sure it's within my capability to do it but I wouldn't quote for something I have no experience of. Just curious if other electricians do dry underfloor heating?
