First and foremost, you should always follow the manufacturers recommendations on how and weather to acclimate your floor. Acclimation is typically recommended minimum 72 hrs however, there are some that recommend up to 14 days. Your floor should be layed out in the room where it is to be installed and temerature set at normal living conditions.You should check the moisture content of the boards when they arrive. According to NWFA guidelines 40 boards for every 1000/sf of flooring. After acclimation the moisture content of solid strip flooring 3" wide or less should be no more than 4% different than the content of the sub flooring material and no more than 2% on wider planks.
If you are installing over radiant heat, the subfloors must have been cured without heat transference for a minimum of 4 weeks and then an additional 2 weeks with the heat set on 2/3 maximum. Once that has been completed you will need to set the floor temerature at 64 degrees min. for 5 days before beginning installation.
