Can the Foil Heater be used with Carpet or Vinyl?
The Foil heater can be used with carpet and vinyl but must be installed in conjunction with the Warmup Dual Overlay System.
Under no circumstances should the final floor covering be fitted directly on top of the foil heater. Installing the foil system under these types of soft floor finishes will result in damage to the heating system.
The dual overlay boards provide protection to the system under the final floor finish.
See the dual overlay Tech sheet for more information.
