Ecowarm shall be installed over a wooden subfloor, complying with “General EcoWarm Installation Requirements For All Flooring Over Wood Subfloor”. In addition, the following specific precautions and instructions shall be followed:
Many, but not all, engineered wood flooring products are suitable and recommended by the manufacturer for use with radiant floor heat. Check before installing. Many engineered wood flooring products have floor temperature limits that need to be observed as well. Install engineered wood flooring crosswise to EcoWarm whenever possible. It is recommended that engineered wood flooring installed over EcoWarm shall employ controls that gradually adjust water temperature going to the EcoWarm with a reset curve. A floor temperature limiting sensor can be used to comply with flooring manufacturer’s flooring temperature specifications.
