Common Support Questions


When installing electric floor heating over a concrete slab, an insulating underlayment like ThermalSheet is highly recommended to ensure efficient operation, faster heating times and warmer floor temperatures.

No, ThermalSheet underlayment floats over the subfloor, adjacent sheets are staggered and taped together to prevent any overlapping.

Any type of underlayment/padding may be used as long as it has a density of 6-8 pounds per cubic foot. Certain underlayment, such as ¼” (6mm) thick cork, or 6mm ThermalSheet are recommended for Environ™ Flex Rolls. It is also acceptable to place a vapor barrier, such as a plastic sheet, under the underlayment. Underlayment papers are not compatible with Environ™ Flex Rolls. Underlayment is necessary to prevent Environ™ Flex Rolls from damage from the weight of the floor, furniture, and people. Unavoidable wooden floor movements will not harm Environ™ Flex Rolls. Wooden floors expand and contract with temperature and moisture change. The wooden floor “moves” on top of Environ™ Flex Rolls. This movement will not damage Environ™ Flex Rolls when the installation is done correctly and the underside of the final floor covering is installed evenly. Some underlayment materials also have a noise reducing and insulating effect. When installing over concrete, a ¼” underlayment is mandatory. Any underlayment available in ¼” size is acceptable in most cases. ThermalSheet, cork, or ¼” to 3/8” of expanded polystyrene (EPS) with a density of 2 pounds per cubic foot or more, are recommended for installation under Environ™ Flex Rolls. When installing over a concrete slab, choose the underlayment with the highest R-Value.

ThermalSheet Insulating Underlayment is a synthetic cork, a lightweight thermal barrier made of hemi-crystalline thermoplastic.

WarmlyYours recommends ThermalSheet underlayment when installing a floor heating system over a concrete slab to prevent heat loss and protect against moisture. It will not rot, support mold and mildew, or absorb moisture.

- ThermalSheet synthetic cork underlayment (6mm) has a 1.5 R-value, crack isolation up to 1/4“, reduces sound by up to 22 dB, and is Robinson tested (TCNA) and rated for residential loads.

- Cork (6mm) has a .72 R-value, crack isolation up to 1/32“, reduces sound by up to 23 dB, and is Robinson tested (TCNA) and rated for residential loads.
