Hydronic Heating System

Hydronic heating systems are clean and quiet. They distribute heat byimages hydro pumping a solution of water and antifreeze through a series of  pipes made from either copper or a special plastic material called polyethylene. 

Hydronic heat does not rely on the circulation of air and does not move contaminates or dust particles around the house. Most of these systems also do not use fans, eliminating loud noises and drafts. Hydronic is a type of radiant heating, and because it consists of water, it can hold over 3,000 times as much heat than air of the same amount can.

The heated water from a boiler is circulated through the piping and can be installed under basement joints, underneath your floor covering, or can even be integrated into a concrete floor. Concrete and tile floors have the biggest outcome when using a hydronic radiant system.

For those homes with drafty rooms or that may have an uneven flow of heat throughout the home, you may  find that hydronic systems are user friendly. It is a great way to solve this problem. While the initial cost may be a little pricey for you, it is definately worth it and something to look into for the future.
