As energy conscious homeowners examine their options, radiant heat ﬂooring products are becoming increasingly popular. Not only do these electric and hydronic systems deliver heat precisely where it is wanted underfoot, the heat delivery is even, long-lasting, and comfortable. Once a radiant heat system is selected, the question then becomes a matter of what ﬂooring material to place over the heating elements. The good news for lovers of wood ﬂoors is that thinner engineered wood ﬂooring is more stable and transfers heat better than solid wood ﬂooring. Moreover, engineered wood ﬂoating ﬂoors do not require nails or staples that might puncture radiant heat wires or pipes. Engineer wood ﬂoors combine with radiant heat systems to feel as warm as they look. If you’re thinking about ﬂooring options for your home, please come talk to the friendly folks at LIBERTY CARPET. We have a wide variety of options for you to choose from, and our expert sales staff can help you understand the pros and cons of your choices.
