When renovating or building your home you will of course wish to have the highest quality materials and the best aesthetics in line with your tastes.
You may be wondering whether or not it is possible to have the luxury of underfloor heating alongside the other luxury of natural stone flooring. Fortunately, it is very much possible for you to have both.
Stone is a great conductor of heat, meaning the heat from your underfloor heat source will pass through it wonderfully and make your home nice and toasty.
Whether your choose to have warm water underfloor heating or electric underfloor heating your choice of stone will absorb it quickly and allow it to pass and rise through your home in a small matter of time.
What to watch out for
As stone is such a great conductor of heat, it is ideal that you have floor sensors for your thermostat installed so that the heat of the temperature cannot exceed 35 degrees and become dangerously hot.
When picking the stone for your floor you should keep in mind that the thickness of the stone will affect how fast you feel warmth through them. If you’re looking for quick heating stone flooring, opt for thin tiles. If you don’t mind how fast the tiles heats then you don’t need to worry about the thickness (especially if they look amazing).
It is possible to have underfloor heating and stone floor all the way throughout your home. This means you can get both the benefits of beautiful stone flooring in your specific choice of stone as well as have warm feet wherever you step.
