Luxury vinyl flooring over radiant heat: Is it possible?

Yes, it is! Vinyl plank flooring (LVP) is considered one of the best options for this type of heat. So, is luxury vinyl tile (LVT). Both are forms of luxury vinyl flooring.

What is radiant heat?

Also called "underfloor heating," this supplies warmth directly to the floor. That's opposed to original heating methods where the air circulates, rises to the top, then falls to the cold floor. 

Radiant heating is considered one of the most energy-efficient methods. The original method, where the air circulates, requires the heating system to turn on more often. 

What to know before your flooring installation

Check with manufacturer instructions on proceeding with luxury vinyl flooring. There can be different installation methods.

  1. Be aware that extreme heat can damage LVP and LVT flooring. 
  2. Consider a Smart Thermostat where you can adjust the temperature in each room. This is as opposed to using heating that distributes the same temperature throughout.
