Radiant Heating Under Luxury Vinyl and Resilient Flooring

Take your flooring project to the next level. Get the look of hardwoods with benefits of luxury vinyl and the comfort of STEP Warmfloor radiant heating.


Under Luxury Vinyl and Resilient Floor Heating

STEP Warmfloor heating elements can be used under luxury vinyl and resilient flooring.

Luxury vinyl and other resilient flooring types have become increasingly popular over the years. Luxury vinyl is a great flooring option for underfloor heating, especially for basements and concrete slabs where moisture and humidity may be present. With its durability, sustainability, and availability in many designs, it makes a great flooring choice for underfloor heating. Installing a STEP Warmfloor radiant heating system beneath your luxury vinyl or resilient floors will ensure that they are comfortable and evenly heated.

Luxury Vinyl and Resilient Underfloor Heating Installation

There are different options for installing luxury vinyl flooring. You have dry back/glue down methods; click/locking systems or loose lay/floating products. Due to the ease of installation and that it does not require adhesive, loose lay products are very popular.

The finished appearance of any resilient flooring installation will be determined, largely, by the subfloor over which it is installed. Wood subfloor/underlayment must be leveled, smooth, dry, and solid, free of movement and properly fastened.

The maximum temperature recommended on resilient goods is 85F (29C). STEP Warmfloor, being a low temperature, self-regulating heating element, can be installed under most resilient floor coverings. For proper and efficient heat distribution, thermal insulation is required under the radiant heating elements.
