Wood Flooring Underfloor Heating for Floating Hardwood

Hardwood floors have long been the premier flooring option for homeowners, with many considering them to be the most elegant choice for nearly any room in the home. Not only do hardwood floors add a touch of luxury and warmth to any space — whether it's the living area, the kitchen or the bedroom — these long-lasting floors are also incredibly durable. The one downside to hardwood floors, traditionally, is that they are difficult to install.


However, floating hardwood floors have changed the installation game. Now, it's easier than ever to have beautiful hardwood floors in your home, and as a result, it makes wood flooring underfloor heating a more realistic possibility for most homeowners. Floating hardwood floors are not nailed into the subfloor in the way that traditional hardwood floors are installed, which is why floor heating for floating hardwood is becoming increasingly popular among homeowners. Wood flooring underfloor heating can be installed in any room in the home, including your kitchen, living room, entryway, bedrooms or the bathroom.


It's important to keep in mind that floating hardwood is available in a variety of wood types and finishes. Not only can you have natural floating hardwood floors, but you also can invest in composite floating hardwood floors. As you choose the wood type for your floating hardwood floors, you should keep in mind that the effectiveness and efficiency of your heated floors will vary based on your final selection. Some hardwood floors are more prone to warping with temperature changes, while others are thicker and will take longer to heat up. Fortunately, natural wood is a good conductor of heat, so your heated wood floors will maintain their desired temperature for long periods of time.
