The hydronic heating system – a brief overview
One of the best heating and cooling systems on the market, hydronics boast a range of benefits including energy efficiency, producing lower levels of green-house gas emissions than alternatives, and being up to 35% more cost effective to run than ducted systems.
Conventional heating and cooling systems rely on hot or cold fan forced air to create the desired temperature, whereas Hydronic heating systems and cooling solutions use water.
The water is heated by a boiler or a heat pump and then circulated through a system of pipes, which in turn warms up and increases the temperature through what is known as ‘radiant heat’.
Hydronic products include:
