BOEN hardwood floors and underfloor heating? No problem! Read here why...
Hardwood flooring and underfloor heating – do they even go together? Experience tells us that they do, and it can even have advantages. The room climate for underfloor heating is in general more stable than in rooms with radiators.
The thermal resistance of hardwood floors are low, meaning that heat transfer is hardly hindered. Hardwood flooring placed on underfloor heating is also
Wood is a living material that is affected by the environment. The moisture content is controlled by the air’s relative humidity (RH), which is the ratio of “dry” and “wet” temperature. In specifc countries, the climate varies considerably from summer to winter. This is also the case indoors, especially during the heating season. The relative humidity during very cold periods can be as low as 10 to 15%. In public buildings (ofces, etc.) or passive houses where there are stringent ventilation requirements, the relative humidity can be as low as 10%.
BOEN ﬂooring withstands a relative humidity of 30-65% at a temperature of 18°C. All interior woodwork dries to the equivalent humidity of the surrounding air, causing shrinkage and the formation of cracks. It is therefore of great advantage to supply moisture to the air, for example by using a humidifer. Both humans and plants will feel more comfortable.
