Choosing the right flooring to use over underfloor heating

Polished concrete, engineered timber, luxury vinyl, tiles – your choice of flooring can make a real difference to the overall look and feel of your interior design. The good news is that all of these popular floor coverings work well with warm water underfloor heating (UFH). By designing your system according to your choice of flooring, your UFH supplier will help you enjoy warmth and comfort as well as style.

Does it matter what floor covering I choose?

Hard flooring such as polished concrete and ceramic tiles are the most thermally conductive, allowing heat from the UFH to transfer to the surface of the floor quickly. Carpet is generally the least conductive, but a carpeted room can still be effectively heated by a well-designed UFH system.

Can I pair sensitive floor coverings with UFH?

Nu-Heat can offer advice on pairing UFH with your chosen floor covering, and will design your UFH system to provide a consistent, controllable heat.
