Floors That Should Not Have Radiant Heat Flooring
Rubber flooring does not react well to high heat and may give off unpleasant odors.
Radiant heating can dry and loosen the adhesive on glued-down carpeting. In fact,
any type of flooring that employs adhesive as its joining system is a poorer choice for radiant heating systems
than flooring that uses tongue-and-groove or fold-and-lock seaming.
Since concrete flooring is homogeneous, concrete alone is a poor choice for radiant heating.
Radiant systems require layered flooring so that the tubing can be hidden under the top layer.
However, radiant heat systems can be embedded in concrete floor slabs, as long as a subsequent top floor covering such as tile is added. สถาปนิก
