Radiant heating is a fast growing source of heating, both in commercial and residential installations. Radiant heating is an omni-directional source that does not heat air directly like baseboard convectors do. Unlike warm air, which tends to rise, radiant energy travels in all directions and it becomes very crucial for installers to know how heating works with different types of hardwood flooring.

As heat beneath flooring involves tubing under plywood sub-floors, or tubing in Reviews on Bamboo Flooring Des Plaines IL 60016 concrete, it is very important for people to realize that radiant heating can dry out the hardwood flooring because of the heat that is rising from underneath it. Among different hardwood floors, bamboo flooring makes an excellent choice for the hardwood flooring that is installed over radiant heating. The great thing about bamboo is that it is not affected by heating and can easily withstand relative changes in the humidity.

The performance of the Des Plaines IL 60016 bamboo floor over heating depends on many factors such as the installation method, user maintenance, quality of bamboo flooring, and the age of the bamboo plants when they were harvested.

A radiant heating system generates heat and humidity and it is highly recommended by many manufacturers that you use at least 6/9-inch thick plywood. The sub-floor not only gives the flooring a much more stable foundation and support, but it also acts as a heat shield for the bamboo floor, protecting it from the radiant heat. When you get ready to install the bamboo flooring in a Des Plaines IL 60016 room where there is radiant heating, you should let the planks acclimate in that room for at least 3 days. This will allow flooring to better handle the humidity and the heat by letting the radiant heating go through its heating cycle several times.

When bamboo is installed over a radiant heating system, it becomes very important to keep the heat Des Plaines IL 60016 set at one particular setting.
