A floating engineered hardwood floor is ideal over a radiant heat source. This is because this type of flooring system has greater stability. The increased stability results from the use of a layering system which makes the flooring resistant to warping, swelling, cupping and splitting by counteracting twisting. Therefore, installation of a floating engineered hardwood floor over a radiant heat source is preferred. This type of flooring is also preferred for installation in moist climates and when the installation takes place over concrete.
