heated floors and carpet

This may be a dumb question but after reading several post it seems there may be a problem putting carpet runners on a heated floor. is there a concern with this. I hope not my little poodle does not like tile.

I don't know the answer but suspect it might be important to know if your floors are heated electrically or if they use hot water heat.

I have read the same thing, but it's mainly about rubber backed rugs. I do notice that the floor will be warmer under a rug, and especially under a dog bed than the rest of the flooring.

We have put down cotton runners on our electric heated floors without problems. They do get warmer under the runner.

No problem with rugs on heated floors. Plus, if concerned, you can digitally set the floor temps.
