10 Reasons to Choose Hydronic Heating to Heat Your Home
Hydronic Heating Use hot water to heat your home! This type of heating offers great flexibility allowing you to turn off the heat in the rooms you are not using thus saving you money.
Quiet Operation There is only minimal noise that is barely noticeable from a Hydronic Heating System. The noise is that of the boiler when it is heating the water.
It is the same amount of noise from your current boiler for your house hold hot water, so it is nothing like the noise from a ducted or split heating system.
Control of individual room temperatures
Each radiator can be independently temperature controlled. This means that you can set a comfortable temperature for every room. A large drawback from ducted and split heating systems is that they heat the room where the thermostat is to the desired temperature, and you end up with cold or hot bedrooms.
Cheaper to run You are basically heating up your home with heated water. Heating that water with gas means far cheaper running costs when compared to any electric powered system. Ducted and Split Heating systems run on electricity.
Water is also highly efficient in retaining temperate and exposed pipes in a Hydronic System are also insulated, further reducing heat loss and minimising energy requirements.
Recommended for Allergy sufferers
Hydronic Heating Systems do not blow air. Air blowing around your home means particle's that irritate allergies are constantly moving around your home.
Less Dusting Because particles and dust aren't blown around your home, and there is no ducting for dust to gather, your dusting days are kept too normal. A large issue with ducted systems is that they fill up over time with dust, and they constantly move this dust around your home.
This is also an expensive maintenance issue to consider with ducted heating.
Recommended for Asthmatics
Again because dust is not blown around the home Hydronic Heating is recommended for Asthmatics. With a fast heat up/cool down cycle hydronic heating systems are acknowledged by medical authorities for their ability to provide controllable heat without transference of airborne bacteria
More comfortable These heating systems are more comfortable for a few basic reasons. They are almost noiseless, they do not audibly turn on and off all of the time and they do not blow air around your home. Air blowing around your home could become annoying in some situations where it blows paperwork and similar light materials off of benches and alike.
Most efficient method of heating a space
Radiant heat heats up the surrounding objects, not just the air. The main reason a ducted system is always turning on and off is that it only heats the air, and the surrounds quickly absorb the heat and cool the room again. Hydronic Heating uses the heated water to heat radiators or your concrete slab. These spaces then radiate heat and warm up everything in the space.
Far less Stratification The technical reason that above all makes Hydronic Heating the most superior heating method is because stratification is minimised. Stratification is simply the process of having all of the warm air hanging around the ceiling while the lower air can be far cooler. Air systems only heat the air, so the heated air which is far higher than room temperature rises straight to the ceiling pushing cold air down. Hydronic Heating systems rely on heat radiating into the room and heating up the objects in the room at the actual temperature you require. They actually heat up the whole space quicker than an air system. An air system can feel like it heats up quicker because it pours super heated air onto you.
