Wood Flooring Underfloor Heating: What You Need to Know

For decades, nailed hardwood floors have been considered the premier option for flooring in any room. Elegant and timeless, nailed hardwood floors are designed to stand the test of time — and they add a touch of warmth and luxury to any room. In recent years, hardwood floors have become the favored choice for any room, including the entryway, living room, kitchen, bathroom and even bedroom. Today, not only are homeowners opting for stately hardwood floors, but they are enhancing their floors with radiant floor heating products.


Many people assume that underfloor heating is not possible underneath traditional hardwood floors, but the fact of the matter is, recent innovations have made it entirely possible to have safe, comfortable wooden floors in your home. Meet the STEP® HEAT floor heating system.


The STEP®HEAT system is designed specifically with natural wood in mind. No need to adjust the temperature to prevent warping and shifting your floor - this radiant floor heating system self-regulates its temperature to protect your wood floors at all times.  It provides you with effective, reliable, and most of all comfortable, underfloor heating beneath your nailed or glued hardwood floors.


Once you've selected a STEP® HEAT radiant floor heating system for your hardwood floors, it's time to have them installed. You can install them yourself or hire a contractor to complete this task. In most cases, people have radiant floor heating installed during a renovation project when they are upgrading their floors, however, you can retrofit radiant floor heating products to an existing floor if needed by installing the heating elements between joist bays.
