TILES vs Laminate vs LVT - Underfloor heating with Heat Pump

Hello there!

Need a great URGENT help in solving this confusion!

We are getting a new build with Open plan Living room and Kitchen together which has a WET Underfloor Heating installed and supported through a Air source Heat Pump!

We are confused to Tile or Laminate or Luxury Vinyl the whole place!


We are afraid that Tiles might be cold when UFH is not ON and are concerned if the Bills will be high if we have to keep UHF most-time ON considering its Air source Heat Pump powered by electricity!!


At the same-time worried that UFH will not do justice and wont work effective if used with less thermal conducting Laminate / Vinyl-planks as added to that the Heat Pump would be less powerful than gas-bolier!! More concerns are if Laminate are OK for Kitchen !?


Can you please clear this with your recommendations in between these three types for flooring Living Room + Kitchen together -

we hardly got these couple of days to confirm the builder with our ask! Appreciate your response as a great help in advance


Thanks & regards.
