What Is Hydronic Heating & Why You Need It
Hydronic heating is a safe, comfortable, economical and flexible way to heat any home. Hydronic heating systems circulate hot water through warming baseboards, radiators and/or radiant tubing in your floors or ceilings. There are many advantages to heating your home using a hydronic heating system, whether it is for a new home or as a replacement heating system. Below are just a few:
Heat is evenly distributed throughout the home.
No drafts or hot/cold spots like a traditional forced air system
Minimal circulation of allergens and dust particles
Your hydronic heating system saves space because there is no ductwork
Heating zones allow you to personalize the heating from room to room
You only need one system for your home and water
Because hydronic heating is installed in the flooring your feel will always be warm.
What is Hydronic Heating?
In the simplest of explanations, hydronic heating is an energy efficient, environmentally-friendly solution to your heating needs. Hydronic heating uses tubing to run hot liquid beneath the floor, along base board heaters, or through radiators to heat your home. Hydronic heating is also called radiant heating and has become increasingly popular among homeowners who need comfort and control in their heating zones. Hydronic heating also provides dramatic savings on energy costs while decreasing environmental impact.
Because the entire floor radiates heat from the ground, hydronic heating provides comfort that surpasses the traditional forced air system. In addition, because forced air systems work by blowing warm air through duct work throughout the home air is lost and lead to hot and cold spots. Your sub-floor hydronic heating system eliminates this problem by producing even heat that radiates from the floor throughout the entire home.
In short, think of hydronic heating as you would heating from the sun. If it is a hot sunny day and you move from the shade to the sun, you will be warmer even though the temperature never changed. Hydronic heating works by the same concept. Temperature is much more consistent than a traditional system because the air is not lost. It moves throughout the room, circulating through the house evenly.
