Underfloor Heating for Wood & Laminate. Wood is a wonderfully tactile natural material and when paired with electric underfloor heating, it can really make your home feel warm and inviting. If your wood or laminate panels clip together easily and require no nailing down, foil mats can be quickly rolled out and installed underneath, allowing you to enjoy underfloor heating in a minimal amount of time. However, if you have solid wood or nailed floors, loose cable or sticky mat systems are also available. If you're unsure whether your wood or laminate flooring is suitable for underfloor heating, always refer to the manufacturer's specifications.
