Cold feet? Ever considered underfloor heating?

Underfloor heating is a comfortable and subtle alternative to classic radiator heating. Unfortunately, not all floor types are compatible with this modern heating technique. Quick-Step offers several flooring types that guarantee you warm feet, whatever the season.

Many choices to be made…

Do you prefer hydronic or electric floor heating? Are you building a new home or just renovating? Are you placing the heating directly under your floor, or embedded in the underlying concrete screed? When opting for underfloor heating, there are many technical choices to be made. And each option has its pros and cons. Seeking professional advice will help you navigate this maze of options.

…including the right flooring

Not all flooring types are suitable for use in combination with underfloor heating. Some hardwood floors with a high moisture level, for instance, can shrink or swell when subjected to underfloor heating. Other floors might be too thick, or have an insulating effect, blocking off any heat transfer.

Quick-Step to the rescue

When installed properly and using the right underlay, nearly all Quick-Step floors – including laminate, vinyl and most hardwood floorings – are suitable for use in combination with underfloor heating or cooling. Quick-Step’s Livyn luxury vinyl collection is particularly suited, as vinyl is an excellent thermal conductor.

So, in your quest for the best flooring to lay on your underfloor heating, Quick-Step is the way to go. You’re sure to get a soft, warm and cosy flooring that will have you kick off those socks and shoes and do a barefoot shuffle!
