When can I use hydronic slab heating?
We generally only recommend in slab hydronic heating for brand new homes that are not yet under construction. This is because the pipework must be laid directly into the concrete slab when it is poured.

Why should I choose it?
Concrete slab heating offers a number of advantages, including: keeps your home cleaner for longer (as there is no air circulation), aesthetically pleasing (as there aren’t any radiators or ducts to contend with), provides a healthier environment for asthma and allergy sufferers, is incredibly quiet, and is perfect for homes with high ceilings (which are otherwise chilly).
