Underfloor heating, also known as radiant or thermal heating, is a system that heats from beneath your flooring. While carpet can be used for this type of heat, you should take certain precautions, and that's what we're going to tell you about in today's post, so read along with us now.
Your carpet offers excellent benefits
Among the many benefits of carpeting is the option to use it in combination with underfloor heating sources, with a few proper precautions. Thicknesses should be monitored so as not to be too thick for heat transfer, and under and overlays must be included.
Felt underlayments should never be used, as this creates a hindrance in the system, cause lower than average temperatures above your flooring. But regardless of the actual temperature, the system should never be set above 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
For safety purposes, self-leveling mortar should be installed along with the carpet or heating for the best results, a UL-approved option with carpet. To find out more about this option and other safety features like it, be sure to stop by our showroom whenever you're in the area and speak with a flooring professional about your needs.
