Experience of radiant wall heating / behind wall heating ?


Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about radiant wall heating / behind wall heating systems? We are putting in an air source heat pump and insulating a 1970s house. The heating engineer has suggested a behind-the-wall heating system using small warm water pipes. I'd never even heard of such a thing until a month ago and have been trying to gather more information. I have found info online from companies who supply the hardware, but there's virtually no feedback from users available. I guess it's still quite an unusual system in this part of the world. It's said to be an effective way to keep the room temperature constant and is cost-effective, uses less energy etc. An issue I have is that you have to locate the pipes (which are coated in aluminium or some metal) with a beeper if you want to put up pictures. Would it be uncomfortable to have it near a bed? Any info / experiences would be gratefully received. Thanks!
