Type of glue or covering to use with underfloor heating?

Are you looking for the best type of glue or covering to use with the underfloor heating system? If yes, then you can know more about all types of glues/covering here in this blog. 

Actually, all the floor covers can be used with underfloor heating systems. What makes difference here is the materials used in this such as thermal conductivity must have in that floor. It means the capability of quickly and efficiently heat transferring power to the floor. 

Let us see some more floor here:

1. Tile, stone and polished concrete

The best type of floor is considered as the tile, stone and polished concrete. These 3 surfaces have high thermal conductivity that means the heat from the underfloor heating transfers to the floor covering quickly. 

There are some wooden covers also where the underfloor heating system works phenomenally.

2. Engineered Timber

It is also one of the best flooring surfaces in which the underfloor heating system works outstanding. However, it performs exceptionally in the floor temperature and can adapt to the moisture of the content too.

3. Solid Hardwood

It is of course prone to humidity & temperature changes. This means it results in gapping and crowning, cupping. So you will need to check out the manufacturer for the suitability for the use with underfloor heating.

4. Softwood

It is suitable for the use of an underfloor heating system but the attention must be paid to the thickness of the floor i.e it should not be thicker than 20mm. Through this, you can ensure the heating output and you will need to also check out the manufacturer suitability for use.

5. Bamboo and Hybrid

It is the flooring which is quite similar to the engineered wood flooring which is also a good conductor of heat. It is well suited for use with the underfloor heating.

To Wrap Up

All in all, you will have to ponder over the quality of the flooring so that you can choose your underfloor heating system accordingly. Give us a call at (03) 9574 1988 or shoot us at info@kalessi.com.au to know about a detailed collection of bathroom equipment and accessories.
