Is it possible to install parquet on electrical underfloor heating, or thin-bed heating screeds?
In principle, the same specifications and approvals apply for all our products as those for hot water/“wet” underfloor heating. In an underfloor heating system providing heat by means of electrical heating wires, you should take more care to ensure the surface temperature does not exceed 29°C. The floor heating up too quickly or malfunctioning can cause increased surface temperatures and consequently floor failure. This also applies to “carbon film” type electric underfloor heating.
In this case, too, we recommend a room climate of 20° C Air Temperature and a Relative Humidity level between 40 – 60%.
You should be particularly careful when trying to remove a timber floor from this type of underfloor heating.
Please contact a specialist in underfloor heating for precise technical requirements.
