Installing Heated Wood Flooring
Installing heated hardwood flooring can be done by the homeowners themselves or by a professional installer. WarmlyYours provides free design help to create a plan to install your heated wood floors, and, in most instances, orders are shipped the same day they are received, so you'll be able to appreciate the advantages of radiant heating systems sooner than you thought possible.
When choosing a system for heated hardwood floors there are a few considerations that will help make the project a success. Selecting wood flooring that will be the most compatible with radiant heating will help ensure many years of comfortable enjoyment of your home.
Electric radiant heating can be installed quickly and easily under any hardwood floor. WarmlyYours offers heating mats to use with wood floors, as well as mats for other kinds of flooring. For hardwood floors, the TempZone™ mat is used. The instructions for installation are straightforward, but there is also 24/7 technical support available if you need more assistance. Thin wood sleepers (strips of wood 3/8" to 1/2" thick and 1" to 2" wide) are laid down on the subfloor to create channels for laying out the heating mats, which are then set in place with self-leveling cement. The wood flooring is then nailed into the sleepers to complete the job.
