What is Hydronic Heating?
Hydronic heating, also commonly referred to as radiant heating or radiant floor heating, is a heating system that uses hot water to transfer heat throughout a space. Radiant heating typically involves a central boiler that heats the water and a circulator pump that moves the water through a network of pipes or tubes installed within floors, walls, or radiators.
Hydronic Heating System Highlights
- Best placed underneath concrete for efficient heat up and heat retention
- Higher start-up costs but is up to 70% more efficient than electricity-dependent systems
- Eliminates temperature variations and drafts with uniform heat distribution
- Offers zoning capabilities with independent temperature control for each space
Benefits of Radiant In Floor Heating
