radiant floor heat

I am tearing out my old vinyl floor in kitchen. Under it I have 3/4" wood subfloor. I'd like to install a luxury vinyl tile made by Mannington. It is a vinyl product w/ a 1/4" wood underlayment attached. I'm wondering if there is a radiant heat product available that is safe to put under this type of floor.It's hard to get a consistent answer from company reps. The most promising thing i've found is from Thermosoft. Infrafloor film...I think? But I'm not sure if it's compatible w/ the floor! Becoming really confused. Can someone give me some advice? Thank you......Jocon

Welcome, Jocon.

We're a ceramic tile and stone forum, but we do have some pros here who do other types of flooring. I don't believe they'll be able to help you much, though.

I think your question would be better directed to the manufacturer of the flooring you intend use. That's gonna be the only source of reliable information on whether installation over radiant heat is an acceptable procedure.

My opinion; worth price charged.
