Can I use Engineered Wood Flooring Over Underfloor Heating?
Using engineered wood flooring over underfloor heating is a popular choice, offering both aesthetic appeal and efficient warmth. Engineered Wood Flooring like our own Spacers Wood Flooring range, as well as brands we work with like Ted Todd, V4 and Kährs provide quality options designed to work seamlessly with underfloor heating systems.
Engineered wood is a composite material with a top layer of real wood and layers of either Havea or plywood beneath. This construction makes it more stable than solid wood, minimising the risk of warping or cupping, making it suitable for use over underfloor heating.
What Options are there?
Our own range of Spacers Wood Flooring, is constructed using a top layer of the finest European Oak, which is then fully sealed using either a commercial grade Natural Bona Sealant or a natural based Extreme Matt Oil with a photo Initiator to allow easy maintenance. It incorporates a core of solid single species Plantation Hevea Hardwood giving the floor unsurpassed stability and durability, which makes this engineered wood more than suitable with any underfloor heating system. Our showroom also displays products from Ted Todd, V4 and Kährs giving customers like yourselves the chance to see and feel the quality of the wood flooring we display.
Ted Todd, a renowned wood flooring brand, offers a variety of engineered wood options compatible with underfloor heating. Their expertise ensures the wood is crafted to withstand temperature fluctuations.
V4 Wood Flooring is another brand that understands the compatibility of engineered wood with underfloor heating. Their Misty Grey Herringbone, for example, not only adds elegance but also performs well over underfloor heating.
Kährs, a leading flooring manufacturer, specialises in engineered wood floors that complement modern living, including spaces equipped with underfloor heating. Their designs prioritise both style and functionality.
What should I look for?
The key to success when using engineered wood with underfloor heating lies in proper installation and selection of the right materials. Engineered wood allows for heat to transfer efficiently, providing a comfortable and consistent warmth throughout the space.
It’s crucial to follow manufacturer guidelines for acclimatisation, installation, and temperature settings. Our own Spacers range of Wood flooring, along with Ted Todd, V4 and Kährs typically provide detailed instructions to ensure optimal performance.
Ted Todd’s engineered wood, like the Fleece collection, not only adds a touch of luxury but is also engineered for stability, making it an excellent choice for underfloor heating systems. V4’s Rome Dark Grey, available at Spacers, combines style and functionality, making it an ideal choice for modern homes with underfloor heating.
Engineered wood’s dimensional stability minimises the risk of gaps or buckling, providing a reliable and attractive flooring solution. The multiple layers in its construction act as a barrier against the expansion and contraction that can occur with temperature changes associated with underfloor heating.
In conclusion, using engineered wood flooring over underfloor heating is not only possible but also an excellent choice for creating a warm and inviting environment. Our own range of Spacers Wood Flooring, along with brands like Ted Todd, V4 and Kährs offer a range of options, combining style and functionality to enhance your living space.
