Radiant heat

Manny_Lourenco | Posted in Mechanicals on

So I’m installing radiant heat under the subfloor between the joist, with the uponor joist track system. My question is, there will be tile floor above and I wanted to use the schluter ditra as an uncoupling membrane, however someone told me that it would block the heat from the floor. I haven’t read anything to this affect but also don’t want to find out after it is all installed. Please advise. Thanks again for all your help.

    Ditra doesn't have a significant R-value, so you will be fine.
