Underfloor heating is becoming increasingly popular. There are various types of underfloor heating which each have their own area of application, but which underfloor is most suitable for which application?
Basically we distinguish two different underfloor heating systems:
Waterborne underfloor heating
With this underfloor heating system the heat is transferred through pipes by means of hot water. We distinguish a system where the pipes are milled into the existing anhydrite or cement screed or where the tubes are installed on top of the floor by means of a floating system in the form of an insulation plate.
On this basis, it is possible to install the following floors:
- Click laminate with Heatfoil, Bluefloor
- Engineered wood with Heatfoil
- Duoplank with Heatfoil
- Click LVT with Redfloor
- LVT dry back with Jumpax® Basic with Heatfoil (Jumpax® Heat Traditional)
Electric underfloor heating
There are different types of electric underfloor heating. These systems differ in thickness, capacity and structure, and each has a specific application. The basic principle is to first insulate, then install the underfloor heating and finally finish with a screed.
With such a construction, a good insulating material is usually used as a basis. For example, Heatblok 6 or 8 or Redupax underlays are used. The underfloor heating system is placed on this insulation.
When using HeatBlok 6 or 8 mm, click laminate, parquet or duo boards can be laid directly.
In the case of LVT (click PVC), we always recommend a combination with Redupax.
For LVT, we recommend Jumpax® Basic or HeatPak with Heat Block 6 or Heat Block 8.
