Radiant Heat Subfloors and Underlayment
The addition of in floor radiant heating systems has increased dramatically in recent years. As you may know, not all types of hardwood floors can be used over a subfloor with a radiant heat or hydronic heat systems installed. It is also difficult to find information on which flooring underlayment to use over a radiant heat.
Efloors.com has done its research on this, and has determined that the Quick Step UniSound underlayment, has little effect on the heat transference from the radiant heat subfloor to the top of the flooring surface. Because of it's open cell technology, they allow moisture and heat to transfer to the upper flooring layer. As long as the surface temperature of the concrete does not exceed 85 degrees F, you will not compromise the underlayment’s effectiveness.
The Quick Step Uniclic Combi Floor is actually rated for underfloor heating, and also claims that no odors or harmful gasses are emitted with its use.
