Floor heating: Will the heat travel from the lower floor upstairs to the upper floor?

Floor heating: Will the heat travel from the lower floor upstairs to the upper floor?

Some of the heat from the floor heating system is transferred to the room air (but the majority is emitted as heat radiation), and therefore this warm air will rise upstairs…. But the majority of the heat will stay on the lower floor.

You are more likely to get heat rising from the lower floor to upper floor if your lower floor air is heated from sunlight, or you have some type of forced-air or convection heating system.
