Can you install legacy flooring collection hardwood over radiant heat?
Experts agree the best option for radiant heat is engineered hardwood. It is not as thick as solid hardwood, leaving room for the thin heating cables or tubes to lie easily beneath the floors. Engineered hardwood can also be “floated” which means the boards are glued at the seams and not nailed or glued down to the subfloor. Also, make sure your radiant heating system has been fully operational at 80 degrees for two weeks before installation.
