you need more information, what is the subfoor.wood or concrete. if its wood you need to pull up the lino and the underlayment .then you can nail down backer board and add a heating fabric under the tile . if cement just add the heating fabric.under tile heating fabric is available from home depot.good luck

well to install a heated floor unit (no matter what type of finish floor you're having installed) you have to start from the bottom up. Remove everything. Install the sub base. then install yoiur element. then install your finish base, then finish floor..
