Wood Flooring and Underfloor Heating

Of all the floor coverings that are suitable for underfloor heating, a wooden floor is the most comfortable. Yes, it is possible to install a wooden floor on underfloor heating. Uipkes has been a specialist in installing engineered oak flooring on underfloor heating for 20 years. Once you have felt the familiar warmth of wood during the cold winter period, you will never want to go back!

IS WOOD REALLY SUITABLE FOR UNDERFLOOR HEATING OR COOLING?

Not every plank or type of wood is suitable for a combination with underfloor heating. This has to do with the resistance (Rc value) of the wood and the extent to which the heat reaches the surface.

You cannot combine a thick, solid wooden board with underfloor heating, but an engineered oak floor is excellent, also as main heating, because of the low resistance of oak and the thickness of the top layer of the layered wooden floor.

De oak engineered wood floor from Uipkes® is a layered floor that can provide a comparable yield to other floor coverings, such as PVC, laminate or natural stone.

In addition, sustainable wood is the only renewable resource compared to other floor coverings composed of oil/plastic or stone mined in quarries.

Underfloor heating and underfloor cooling is a sustainable method for heating your home or office. A wooden floor with underfloor heating is twice as durable!

BENEFITS OF UNDERFLOOR HEATING AND WOODEN FLOORS

Below the advantages of underfloor heating and wooden floors:

  • Underfloor heating heats the entire room evenly and a lower supply temperature is required than with radiators
    Underfloor heating can be combined with sustainable energy sources such as solar panels.
  • Nothing feels as natural as warm wood under your feet; a real delight in the cold months.
  • Wooden floors with underfloor heating are easy to mop and are easier to maintain than radiators where dust builds up.
  • The working of wood is counteracted because the wood is first specially dried and then glued to waterproof panel material. The sheet material is made up of cross-glued parts that are completely glued to the subfloor, so that the effect is minimal and the floor is extremely sturdy.
  • You can apply the most installation patterns with a wooden floor on underfloor heating
  • Our oak floors suitable for underfloor heating are available in 90 colors and will last a lifetime!
