Are Concrete Floors Cold and Damp?
With the availability of radiant heating cables, these can be embedded into the concrete. Since concrete has thermal properties, it can store and radiate heat. You will be able to control the temperature of the floors. This is really great, especially in the winter.
In new homes, building codes require the installation of a vapor barrier under any concrete slabs in order to block out moisture which causes the feeling of dampness.
In summer and in hot climates, a cooler floor can be an advantage and can actually help lower air-conditioning costs.
