I have posted this question in heating and cooling but thought I should post it here also.

We are installing radient floor heat in a new home. No one has been able to tell me what the best type or brand of wood floor to use with radient heat. I guess not many people are using this yet. I know you can't nail flooring down. We like the look of real wood so maybe engineered flooring may be the ticket. I've heard of glue down and snap together flooring. Has anyone seen any of these used and do they give the look of real wood? I hope someone can help me with a type of brand to look for. Thanks.

Hi Wags, I had pergo floors installed in my living room/dinig room because I love wood floors but could not afford the real thing. I like it, it looks nice and its easier to maintain than wood. I'm not sure about the heating question but as far as pergo which is the snap-in panels, i have no complaints. Just make sure you get the right people to install it, if they are not installed correctly they can become problematic. hope some of this helps you.

any of their woods can go over radient heat, and I think Kahrs is the best engineered available.
