The best floor coverings for underfloor heating


Underfloor heating is efficient and improves living comfort. However, not every floor covering is suitable for this type of heating.

For a floor covering to be suitable for underfloor heating, it must be resistant to fluctuations in temperature as well as easily to heat. When choosing the floor, very different aspects have to be considered than without underfloor heating.

Wooden floor covering

Parquet and laminate with wood decor are considered to be very comfortable and warm floor coverings. Among other things, they owe this property to good cold insulation. On a floor heating, this feature is counterproductive. Anyone who still wants a wooden floor, should choose the wood as thin as possible and glue the surface over the entire surface. However, without the usual floating installation technique, larger joints often occur later.

Carpeting on underfloor heating

Carpet tolerates the temperature fluctuations on the heated floor very well. Cracks or other mistakes are hardly to be expected. If the carpet is glued over the entire surface, you do not have to worry about the formation of waves. However, the carpet should be as thin as possible and without foam padding chosen, so that the heat of the heater passes well. The thermal resistance indicates how much heat is retained. The lower this value, the better.

ceramic tiles and Stone Floors

Ceramic and natural stone floor tiles have excellent flooring properties for underfloor heating. The heat is conducted directly to the surface. There are almost no energy losses, whereby the effectiveness of the heating can be significantly increased. Even if some carpets are placed or furniture is placed, the stone or ceramic floor remains clearly superior to the parquet. The underfloor heating makes the floorcovering pleasantly warm, even for bare feet.

With underfloor heating, the floor must therefore be chosen so that the heat of the heating water is conducted well into the room. The better the conductivity of the floor covering, the lower the flow temperature can be set. With the right floor, underfloor heating becomes an effective energy saver.
