Design flooring offers not only a beautiful appearance, but also a number of technical advantages due to the material used. Vinyl is inherently warm underfoot and offers a great deal of comfort when walked on thanks to its elasticity. It can also make a significant contribution to the very topical issue of energy saving. Compared to other types of flooring, vinyl flooring has very good thermal conductivity. As a result, it heats up faster, stores the temperature longer and releases it more evenly into the room. This is true when using underfloor heating as well as conventional radiators.

"We chose a design floor mainly because of the foot warmth and noticed a mega difference in temperature between our old tiled floor and the new vinyl floor."

Another positive aspect of design flooring, which is particularly beneficial when using underfloor heating, is its low thermal resistance. Here, its material thickness of a maximum of 5 mm works in its favour. Logically: the thicker the flooring, the higher the temperature of the underfloor heating must be set to penetrate to the surface and warm it up. 

With vinyl flooring, three advantages come together: the good thermal conductivity of the material, the minimal installation height and the low thermal resistance. All together, this means that the temperature of the heating can be set lower to achieve the same room temperature. In this way, you not only reduce your energy costs, but also protect the environment.
