Frequently Asked Questions

Find the answers you need to some of the most common hydronic heating questions.

How does hydronic heating work?

Water is heated in a boiler or heat pump and is circulated around the house through piping in the walls, roof or under the floor. The warm water then travels into panel radiators which are installed in each room to transfer the radiant heat to the air and objects spreading heating evenly around the room.

In the case of underfloor heating the water is circulated around coils of piping in the structural slab or in a topping screed which then heats the whole surface and radiant heat into the room.

Why hydronic heating?

Hydronic heating uses heated water to create warmth that’s more effcient and hygienic than traditional air-based heating methods that rely on forcing warm air throughout the house, resulting in uneven distribution and heat retention.

Hydronic heating evenly distributes a natural radiant heat through the space for unparalleled all-over comfort. Near silent operation and low ongoing run-ning costs makes hydronic heating the perfect choice for home heating.

What are the benefits of hydronic heating?

Comfort - Hydronic heating provides superior comfort by evenly heating any room or area with radiant heat to achieve a comfortable natural warmth.

Efficiency - Hydronic heating is highly efficient as it uses water to move heat around your home instead of air. As water is an excellent conductor of heat, this allows the heat to be transferred around your home with ease and last much longer reducing your overall heating costs.

Healthy - Hydronic heating produces a gentle, safe and hygienic form of heat that provides many health benefits due to improved air quality and healthier living spaces as it doesn’t circulate dust, bacteria, and other allergens compared to other heating methods.

Flexibility - There are many hydronic heating methods available including: underfloor heating, hydronic radiator panels and diffusion plates that make hydronic adaptable to both new and existing homes.

Are hydronic heating systems efficient?

Because heat rises, hydronic heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat your home. Traditional air heating methods rely on forcing warm air throughout the house, resulting in uneven distribution and heat retention.

How do I know which hydronic heating system is best for me?

Hydronic heating offers many heating options for most home types including existing homes and new builds.

Existing home builds
For existing domestic or commercial builds there are still many hydronic heating options available. However, these options can be limited depending on the type of building or foundations that exist.

New home builds
For new domestic or commercial builds all the hydronic options are available. The benefit of adding hydronic heating during the construction phase means you can incorporate the system requirements into your plans to create the greatest impact. In-slab hydronic heating is the only method that must be incorporated into the construction phase as it is installed into the structural slab which creates the base of a new build.

Can I install a hydronic heating system myself?

No, we recommend that any hydronic heating system is always installed by a licensed plumber. Hydronic heating systems installed by unqualified installers may void all warranties.
