ZMesh is Perfect for Heating Hardwood Floors

hardwood-floor-heatingWarmquest 12” ZMesh Heating Element is the ideal system for radiant heating under hardwood floors. ZMesh can be installed directly under the hardwood flooring. Nails or staples are used to install hardwood flooring can be driven directly through ZMesh as long as the nails or staples do not come in contact with any other metal object.  ZMesh is flat, about 1/16″ thick causing very minimal floor buildup.  Sounds just perfect for a hardwood floor doesn’t it?  That’s because it is perfect for hardwood floors and there are other reasons why!

Hardwood floors must acclimate to the humidity level of the room by bringing in the Hardwood several weeks before installation and laying it flat on the floor.  This will minimize dimensional changes due to moisture and get the hardwood prepped for the climate.  ZMesh Heating Element can be installed on the sub-floor before hand to help with the acclimation process. It is important to run a continuous continuity check to make sure ZMesh is not cut or shorted to something conductive in the room during the installation.  Always consult a Heatizon product professional to make sure you have the right system requirements and design features to have the system you expect.  The system should also be tested according to the Heatizon After Element Installation tests before nailing or stapling the Hardwood over it.
