Why choose porcelain tile flooring for underfloor heating installation?

What is radiant floor heating?

Radiant floor heating is an ideal solution if you are looking for a functional and efficient heating system, becoming an increasingly popular option due to the comfort and well-being it provides.

How does the radiant floor system work?

There are two types of installations: electric radiant floors and those that operate through water conduits. Regardless of the installation differences between them, they have in common the way they distribute heat, as both evenly distribute heat throughout the home via a network of pipes distributed beneath the flooring.

This type of heating has multiple advantages as it radiates heat from below upwards uniformly, avoiding drafts, minimizing the appearance of humidity, and the proliferation of dust mites and mold.

Why choose radiant floor heating for your home?

Choosing this system for your home not only impacts the comfort and well-being of the space but also offers economic benefits since it doesn’t require high temperatures to heat the space, allowing the use of renewable energy sources for its operation.

In addition to these advantages, radiant flooring also becomes an excellent thermal emitter in the summer, replacing traditional systems like air conditioning to cool your home.

Why use porcelain tile as the material for radiant flooring?

Among the materials most commonly used for flooring in radiant floor heating systems, ceramic tiles are undoubtedly the preferred choice. Ceramic floor tiles for radiant heating facilitate the easy release of heat into the environment, as they have excellent thermal conductivity.

Porcelain tile has many other advantages, including durability, easy maintenance, and resistance to chemicals. Porcelánicos HDC offers a wide variety of designs and finishes, from porcelain tile with a wood effect for radiant floors to porcelain tile with a cement effect, as well as porcelain tile with a stone effect and porcelain tile with a marble effect, so you can choose the one that best suits your style.
