My house is built on a concrete slab with radiant heat in the floor. The floor is now covered with asphalt tile and I would like to put down Pergo or any similar wood floor.

I understand that a type of foam is laid down under these products. Will this hinder the heat coming through? Has anyone had any experience that could advise me?

Yes Pergo over radiant heat is fine so long as the following recommendations are met:

Pergo flooring can be used in combination with many types of in-floor heating. The heating system can be cast in a concrete floor or in a thin layer of filler on the surface of a concrete subfloor. It can also be installed under a wood sub floor or installed on the surface of the subfloor as an electrical matting.

1. Concrete subfloors must be installed and cured with no heat transfer for a minimum of 60 days.

2. The heating system must be in operation for at least two weeks before installation. The system may be

turned off or set to a suitable installation temperature (65 to 72°F).

3. The flooring surface temperature, that is the surface of the subfloor or the heat radiating from electric heating mats, should not exceed 84°F (29°C).

4. Follow the instructions from the supplier of the floor

heating system.
