How Does Hydronic Heating Work?
Hydronic heating is seen as arguably the most energy efficient way to warm your home. Standard gas heating costs around 35 per cent more and the comparison with electricity is even better, with energy usage about 70 per cent less.
As one of the most popular ways to stay warm in Europe and North America, hydronic heaters use water in radiators to heat your home. The water is heated to a set temperature in a centrally located boiler that is usually run on gas.
The hot water is pumped through pipes to panel radiators that are located in various places in the house. Each radiator heats the room evenly so that the whole house is comfortably warm.
And unlike other heaters, the air is not dried out! It’s a blanket of warmth thanks to water’s ability to conduct and hold heat far better than air.
This is why hydronic heating is highly regarded because water is recycled throughout the system, showing care for the environment.
Jim’s Plumbing loves to care for your hydronic heating system, too! We are here for repairs and maintenance, and can also help with any installation. You can count on our expert heating advice ahead of another brisk winter.
