What are hydronic heaters?
There are 2 options when it comes to hydronic heating supplies – the first is panel radiators (which are mounted on the walls of your home and fed by pipes that run beneath the floor or through the ceiling space) and the second is floor coils (which are laid underneath the floor, directly into the concrete slab when it is poured). Both are powered by hot water that is generated by a boiler.
Why should I choose it?
Hydro heating actually has a number of benefits that you can take advantage of, including: no drafts (no air movement means that drafts and cold spots are completely eliminated), low maintenance (undertake a professional hydronic heating service every few years), thermostatic controls (control the temperature of your home to a single degree) and energy efficient (so you save money).
What about fuel sources?
Although all hydronic heating systems are powered by a boiler (which heats the water to the desired temperature), there are actually a few fuel sources available for powering the heating equipment. The most popular of these are LPG and natural gas, but we do have some electric options available (please note that this fuel source will increase the hydronic heating cost).
