Hey guys. New here and need some help. I’ve asked the same question to the manufacturer but would like to get some more input as I wait for their response.

I’m currently dormering my house and we’re trying to get all of the work done at once. My first floor is about 2500 sq ft and currently has porcelain tile with radiant heat underneath. I have 2 young boys and a 3rd on the way and since we don’t love the color of the tile we were going to change the floor while the dormer goes up.

my wife prefers LVP as it’s a little softer and these kids are constantly falling, sliding, wrestling, etc.

so I know the LVP can be installed directly on top of tile, I’m not worried about the height difference so much as the first floor has 9’ ceilings. My question is will it hurt the efficiency too much for the radiant heat? If I can avoid demoing this tile it saves a boat load of money. And leaves us the option in the future when the kids aren’t falling 10x a day to just take it up and have tile again.
Any input would be great appreciated!
