the ground directly under your house will have benefited by all that energy that has been conducted there through that super conductive material below your under floor heating pipes embedded in your solid floor the delta's there will be next to nothing to my mind.

Thanks guys
I will put the insulation ontop of the concrete slab. I will look at THERM and have a play around.

Don't put the main insulation on top of the slab! Polystyrene is relatively cheap upfill material. If you must have UFH and need a quick heating response install a thin secondary layer of insulation on top of the slab.
