What is hydronic heating?

Hydronic heating is essentially the heating of the floor of your home, to efficiently warm the room.

Hydronic heating is a safe, comfortable, economical and flexible way to heat any home. It has been used for millions of homes.

The high cost historically led to hydronic heating primarily being used in high-end homes. Over the last couple of years, installation costs have come down and even volume builders have started offering hydronic heating as an inexpensive upgrade.

How does it compare to ducted heating?

Hydronic heating is one of the most cost-effective forms of central heating. When compared to ducted heating, installing hydronic heating can save up to 20% in homes with lower ceilings and up to 50% in larger homes. One reason for this is the quality of our boilers which have efficiency ratings of 80-97%.

Another reason is the flexibility of a hydronic heating system; while a central thermostat can control the temperature throughout your home, thermostatic valves can be installed in every room. With a thermostat assigned to every room, you have complete control over room temperatures and can heat rooms individually, allowing for maximum energy efficiency.
