Hydronic heat systems spread warmth more effectively


Radiant hydronic heating may be the stylish solution to this, especially in frigid family rooms or brisk basements. Instead of forced air, hydronic heating uses water, which has a very high capacity for transferring heat to deliver consistent warmth throughout your house. According to the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating, a not-for-profit trade association representing Canada's manufacturers and wholesaler-distributors of plumbing and hydronic heating products, there are other advantages of this kind of heating:
  • Distributed by wall-to-wall pipes, under-floor radiant heating delivers consistent, even warmth that reaches all corners of a home, not just where there's a vent or duct with good airflow
  • Using water as the heat-transfer medium reduces the need to move around air with its dirt, dust, pollutants and allergens, improving indoor air quality when the windows are closed to keep winter weather out
  • Floor and wall radiant heating delivers consistent and even warming over a greater surface area. This is known as the radiant effect and it allows you to heat your home at a lower thermostat setting, requiring less energy for lower bills
  • The main heating conduit is pipe, which means less duct work, so it can be installed almost anywhere, including lower levels, basements, and garages. Use it to heat your whole home or just the new addition;
  • Hydronic heating allows you to use your whole living space without the worry of obstructing vents and intakes. And with fewer unsightly grills, hydronic heating contributes to the esthetic appeal of your house
  • Hydronic heating uses boilers, not a furnace. One boiler can be used for both hydronic heating and producing hot water;

Hydronic heating is easy to install and not expensive.
