Engineered oak over both heated and unheated floor
Hello, we have extended our kitchen and are looking to have engineered oak flooring laid across the new and old floor, the new floor has underfloor heating but the old floor hasn't. Will there be any problems laying engineered oak over different temperatures of flooring?

It shouldn't be a problem. First check if your underfloor heating is compatible with wooden flooring. Most of the underfloor heating controllers have a mode to be activated to slowly warm up/dry the floor before you use a full power. You have to check it with your supplier. Very important is to never exceed 27 degrees Celsius of the floor temperature as well as do not use heavy/thick rugs.
