Hydronic radiant heating and some electric radiant heating can be installed under resilient floorings, which include various types of sheet vinyl, vinyl tile, and vinyl plank. Although it is important to check manufacturer details for heat restrictions and tolerance thresholds that individual vinyl flooring products may have, as well as whether or not a suitable underlayment is required underfloor, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury tile planks (LVP) are among the best flooring solutions to install over radiant heat.
Greatmats offers a number of products that fall under those categorized as luxury vinyl tile over radiant heat, with the following five products being among the most popular:
- Envee Tacky Back LVT Planks
- Envee Rigid Core LVT Planks
- LVT Rustic Wood
- LVT Solid Flooring
- Envee Tacky Back LVT Tiles
Regardless of the specific luxury vinyl tile product you select, it’s a good idea to bring it into the area in which it will be installed and allowed to acclimate for at least two weeks prior to the product being installed. It’s also a good idea to run the radiant heat for a few weeks prior to the installation process and until the installation is complete.
