Is It Better to Lay Tiles or Wood Floors on Electric Floor Heating?

Nowadays, people's material living standards are getting higher and higher, and people pay more attention to the quality of life. In winter, if there is no central heating in the home, electric floor heating must be installed. In addition to heating, floor heating is also the most popular heating facility. So do you know what to put on the electric floor heating? Wooden floor or ceramic tiles?


1. The safety of electric floor heating

Although the tiles are naturally radioactive, they are fired at a constant temperature of 1200°C, so there is no need to worry about the influence of radiation for the heating temperature of electric floor heating.


Traditional laminate flooring and laminate flooring contain chemical additives, which will accelerate the volatilization of harmful substances under high temperature heating conditions, which is harmful to health. If you are paving wooden floors on electric floor heating, you should pay attention to choosing floor heating special floors and choose environmentally friendly floors.


2. The stability of electric floor heating

Due to the low moisture content, the ceramic tiles can maintain stability. There is no need to worry about mildew, insects, corrosion, deformation, water ingress, deformation or warping after heating, not to mention the emission of harmful gases or radioactive substances after heating.


Due to the large internal pore structure of the wood, repeated changes in the cold and heat of the external space will cause changes in the internal moisture content of the wood, which will cause the floor to be deformed and warped. For electric floor heating, wooden floors should be used, preferably composite floors or floor heating. The new floor heating floor controls the deformation rate of the solid wood floor within a reasonable range by controlling the moisture content of the wood and high-temperature carbonization.

3. The thermal insulation of electric floor heating

The main components of ceramic tiles are silicon dioxide and aluminum oxide, which have good thermal conductivity and short preheating time, which can increase the temperature in a short time after the ECO floor heating is turned on. However, after shutting down the system, it will accelerate the indoor temperature emission and cannot keep the temperature for a long time.


The thermal conductivity of ceramic tiles is better than that of wooden floors, and the thermal conductivity is better. After the floor heating is turned on in winter, the indoor temperature rises quickly, so that people will be very comfortable. But at the same time, there are disadvantages. Fast heat conduction means faster heat dissipation, so the wooden floor has better thermal insulation performance.


4. Environmental protection of electric floor heating

The most environmentally friendly solid wood flooring is not suitable for underfloor heating, because the problem of thermal expansion and contraction is greater. The floor heating is very hot when it is turned on, and the temperature drops sharply when it is not turned on, which is a kind of damage to the floor. Over time, the water inside will evaporate, and it will deform and crack. When consumers choose ECO floor heating, they should try their best to choose the best, because inferior floors are likely to produce toxic substances when heated by hot air.
