Hydronic Underfloor Heating uses tubes, water and various energy sources to heat your rooms. It is efficient enough to use as a heating solution for your entire home, and it may reduce your energy costs by as much as 25 percent when compared to a forced-air system.
Installing a hydronic heating system involves placing small pipes beneath the floor to circulate heated water throughout the area. As the water flows through the system, the heat is released. Water can be heated in a number of different ways, which means that you’ll have many energy options when choosing hydronic underfloor heating, such as solar, gas (natural or LPG), wood or heat pump.
Why choose Hydronic Underfloor Heating?
Hydronic underfloor heating works by producing convection and radiant heat so there is no need for fans or blowers. This is especially suitable for the dry South Australian climate. By avoiding fans and blowers, you can minimise the amount of dust, dirt, allergens and germs found in your home, making hydronic underfloor heating a clean and healthy heating solution. For this reason, many hospitals and schools utilise hydronic heating systems. Hydronic underfloor heating also very quiet as there is no noise generated from air moving through ducts, no fans, and no large motors used to run the entire system.
What makes Hydronic Underfloor Heating efficient?
Hydronic underfloor heating is a worthwhile investment that will significantly lower your energy bills. Because warm water travels through a completely sealed piping system to exactly where it is intended, little energy is wasted.
