Hydronic heating is one of the best heating systems on the market. Though the initial set up cost may be slightly expensive, there are many positives to this system.
What are the benefits?
- Very energy efficient
- Low running costs
- Very natural heating methods used
- Maintains a steady flow of heat for a long time
How does it work?
The vents and the pipes that make up the system are usually located in the floor of a room. Other conventional heating set ups usually have the pipes arranged in the ceiling or in the walls of the room. Having the heat generated in the ceiling or in the wall is not the right way to go about heating because the hot air that is produced stays up and does not circulate throughout the home as it is light. This way the cold air pockets remain where they are as they are not replaced by hot air produced by the heating system. Many people mistake this for lower temperature and go ahead to increase the temperature anticipating better heating. This mindset may get you a temporary jump in heating but it will also result in high electricity bills. A hydronic unit on the other hand circulates the air flow from below and thus covers those areas in the house that really need heating.
Another feature of this system is that it does not use any fuel for heat generation. The heat is produced from hot water. This water can come from practically any source. If you are a firm believer of optimal energy consumption, you can also use a solar powered water tank for the supply of water.
Who is it suited to?
People looking to save on future electricity bills can also shift to using this system. In general, for anyone and everyone who wants to cut down on fuel and energy consumption, an underfloor system is the best way to go. It can be a great decision in a new home where you can begin years of cheap energy costs straight away.
