Vinyl and LVT (luxury vinyl tiles) Flooring with Underfloor Heating
Vinyl and LVT flooring work well with Wunda underfloor heating systems and are becoming increasingly popular. It’s important to always check with your supplier that the flooring you choose works with underfloor heating. Some vinyl and LVT flooring need to be limited to a maximum floor temperature of 27 degrees. This will be done by the floor probe that is supplied for each zone that uses this type of flooring. If you have any questions about underfloor heating with vinyl floors or are looking for a quote, our team is always on hand to help.
Installing Underfloor Heating with Vinyl Flooring
When installing Vinyl or LVT floor on top the Wunda Rapid Response® system you will first need to lay a thin layer of leveling compound and then lay the floor finish on top of that, since LVT and vinyl finishes are often quite thin. This leveling compound will be supplied by us with the rest of your system.
Underfloor Heating Energy Efficiency
Radiator systems are the 20th century equivalent of a fireplace. They need your boiler or heat pump to supply hot water temperatures (60-80 degrees) so that they can emit heat into the room.
Water based Underfloor heating works differently, it is like having a huge radiator spread out beneath your floor. Underfloor heating can cover the entire floor space allowing it to use much lower water temperatures (35-45 degrees) to transmit heat throughout the room, making it the go to energy efficient and sustainable system of choice.
