floating wood floor over radiant concrete slab
This is my first post and i have been looking everywhere for some guidance.
We are in Canada and are thinking of installing a concrete floor slab (well insulated from ground) in an extension project and using radiant water heating tubes. We were looking for a heating system that would help keep our south facing, floor to celing, windows free of condensation. We eliminated forced air since we will not have air conditioning. Everyone here installing these glass large surfaces is using radiant concrete floor.
The thing is we dont want to glue the wood to substrate that is directly on concrete. Some of our family members have leg injuries and others are dancers and dont like the idea of the hard surface. We want to put in a floating harwood (not enginnered wood) floor. We can't seem to find any information on this type of installation such as how heat performs getting from concrete to the room. Is there a way to get hot air out of air space? or is there some type of softer mat to use to keep wood's bounce?
All help and questions so appreciated,
