Engineered flooring 'works best for under floor heating'

Posted on 20th Apr 2011 @ 4:53 PM


Engineered flooring is the best option if people have under floor heating.

This is according to Ambient Electrical, which noted the choice of material is vital if people want to go for solid wood flooring.

"The reason for this is because this type of wood floor enables heat to enter into the room through the floor boards, from the under floor heating system," it added.

For those who do install these boards, they will also benefit from the fact it works much better in rooms with a lot of moisture in them.

Those made from oak are also more likely to be able to expand and deal with the temperature changes better than some of their counterparts, the company stated.

Earlier this month, a report released by Frost & Sullivan - a business research and consulting firm - revealed engineered flooring is becoming a popular choice because of its cost effectiveness.
