Hydronic Heating / Radiant Heating
Whether you are building a new home or considering adding floor heating throughout your entire home, hydronic radiant heating may be the right choice for you. So if your next question is, "What is a hydronic radiant heating system?" The answer is quite simple and as follows. Hydronic radiant floor heating systems use a boiler to heat up hot water and a pump to circulate the hot water through plastic pipes that are installed in the concrete foundation of your home. Water is then heated and warms the surface of the floor, which then warms up the rest of the room. In a hydronic radiant heating system, rooms of the home are separated by zones which serve to distribute air evenly throughout the home so that each area of your home can be controlled by separate thermostats. Due to comfort and uniform levels of heat that is supplied, hydronic radiant floor heating is growing fast in popularity among homeowners throughout the Truckee, Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe area. So you are probably asking yourself, "What are the benefits of hydronic radiant floor heating?" Below we have summarized why hydronic radiant floor heating may be the answer to your heating needs.
