Good to Know
Radiant floor heating works with any type of flooring material, but solid surfaces produce a better heat transfer. Regardless of the flooring material you choose, it's imperative to have the right amount of insulation underneath the tubing. Have at least three times as much insulation below the radiant tubing as you have above it to ensure the heat will go up rather than down.
