Your Guide To Heated Flooring

By , On , In Warm Flooring

Fall is here and temperatures are dipping, which means it is time to turn on the furnace (if it isn’t already). But did you know there are other ways to heat your home and increase your cozy factor? We are talking about heated floors, because no matter how warm your house is, the floor always seems to be a little chilly underfoot. One of the reservations we hear often is, “I love the look of tiles but they are so cold in the winter, how can we make them warmer?” Heated flooring is the solution and has revolutionized flooring, especially here in Canada. This blog is here to help you decide if heated flooring is right for you and your next flooring project.

How Does Underfloor Heating Work with Different Flooring Types?

Underfloor heating can be effectively used with various flooring types, including tile, stone, laminate, luxury vinyl, and hardwood. With tile and natural stone, which are good conductors of heat, underfloor heating systems efficiently distribute warmth across the floor surface. Luxury vinyl and laminate, while also compatible, require careful consideration of the system’s temperature limits to prevent damage. Hardwood flooring, particularly engineered wood, can work well with underfloor heating when installed correctly to accommodate the natural expansion and contraction of the wood. Overall, underfloor heating offers a comfortable and energy-efficient heating solution, regardless of the flooring type chosen.

Two considerations for choosing heated floors are the applications and benefits:

Heated Flooring Applications

The most common application for heated flooring is localized heating in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, bedrooms, laundry rooms and entryways. Experienced retailers will be able to advise you on the right flooring types for your space, budget and desired applications, following the manufacturers recommendations.

Heated flooring is available in standard sizes, however it can also be customized to fit any room in your home. This means that the heat will hit all areas of your flooring that you walk on so there are zero cold spots.

Benefits of Heated Floors

There are several benefits that comes from installing heated flooring in your home:

  1. Uniform heating – Maybe the biggest benefit of heated flooring is its ability to uniformly heat the room. In comparison to forced-air heating systems, which uses vents or baseboard heaters. The location of the vents or heaters determines which parts of the room will be warmer than others.
  2. Reduced noise – Unlike forced-air heating systems, which can be quite loud due to the furnace being on, heated flooring is very quiet when it is turned on.
  3. Non-allergenic – A major downfall of forced-air heating systems is that while it is on, it blows dust and other allergens around the room. Because heated flooring heats the people and objects in the room through touch, it does not disturb the dust and allergens in the room.
  4. Energy efficient – Heated flooring is more energy efficient because unlike forced-air systems all the heat that is produced is retained. Forced-air systems use ductwork which is susceptible to leakage. Additionally, heated flooring is programmable and only takes 30-60 minutes to heat up. This allows you to schedule when you would like the heat to turn on and off or up and down as needed.

Heated flooring is an efficient way to enhance comfort to a space or entire home. More than just a luxury, heated flooring is a great way to add value to your home that you can really feel!
