Do radiant heat and engineered hardwood pair well?
Engineered wood flooring is a superb choice for every room in your home, with excellent benefits in every space. But if you have radiant heating, is it a good choice?
These two work very well together if all the requirements are met, and you'll want to learn more about them as you remodel. Here are some facts that could help you make the best choices for your household.
What is engineered hardwood flooring?
Unlike solid hardwood, engineered wood has a layered construction, with layers of plywood as a backing material. Then, a layer of natural hardwood flooring is placed on top, in your choice of species, stain color, and texture.
These floors are perfect in spaces where solid wood isn’t the best choice, including damp, humid rooms where temperatures can change. They're also excellent for parents and pet owners, with impressive benefits to fit each need.
Engineered hardwood and radiant heat
Some would say engineered wood flooring is the best material to place over radiant heating. These floors offer floating options, making it easier to put them over the cables for the heating system.
It's essential to follow all the manufacturer's specifications with engineered wood floors, subflooring, and radiant heat. Adhere to maximum heat settings and watch humidity levels for the best results for all surfaces.
