Underfloor heating: Which flooring is a good fit?

Underfloor heating: Which flooring is a good fit?

If you intend to install underfloor heating, you’re probably wondering which new floors will work best with them. It's vital for both the heating system and the floor covering that they work well together after installation.

It's crucial to find out more about your options to decide which ones will work best for your home. Here are some floor coverings that pair well with your new underfloor heating.

Tile flooring

Tile is a fantastic choice to cover radiant heating options because it helps distribute the heat evenly throughout the room. It warms quickly as the underfloor heating works and never takes on damage from the system.

Natural stone

New floors like natural stone perform similarly to tile, conducting heat quickly and efficiently throughout the room. Many homeowners believe stone to be cold, but with radiant heating, you can walk barefoot in the winter and still be warm and cozy.

Engineered hardwood

Thanks to its many layers, engineered flooring is a stable choice for this heat source. It doesn’t react severely with heating and cooling unless extraordinary situations occur.

Luxury vinyl

You may have heard luxury vinyl doesn't work with radiant heating. However, at our flooring company, you’ll find that it works well here, as long as you follow the warranty information where maximum temperatures are discussed.
