Flooring Insulation Options from Joe Walker’s Flooring

Keep your home warmer in winter with the effective flooring insulation from Joe Walker.

Underlay

As we mentioned in our last post, there are many different kinds of underlay options. One the most important ways to retain heat in any home, underlay is usually a piece of material underneath your floor. This piece of material helps to insulate a home but also to protect the flooring wear. The thicker the insulation the warmer the home!

Laminate

Another option of flooring insulation is laminate flooring. Because of its different layers, laminate does well in retaining heat and is also extremely practical. Also, it is known as “floating flooring,” which means even more underlay with laminate, making for a well insulated household.

Underfloor Heating

Although underfloor heating isn’t flooring insulation by definition, it is a great feature to install if you have an older property which struggles to retain warmth. Because underfloor heating is a hidden electrical system; it’s subtle, distributes heating equally over a floor surface and can be controlled very easily. Of course, flooring heating systems like this are very expensive to install and so, should be considered very carefully!

Engineered Wooden Flooring

The last option we would recommend when it comes to insulation is engineered wood flooring. Similar to laminate, engineered flooring is made up of layers, so retains heat and can be used with or without additional insulation.
