Hydronic heating systems are far more economical and efficient than forced air systems simply because of how the heat is transferred and moved around the building. Water holds and transfer much more heat than air and can be moved easier.
Hydronic system can move enough heat to warm a standard size house through a 1’’ pipe and only require a small circulation pump to do so.
Traditional forced air system usually require big ducts at least 450mm loosing up to 30% of the energy in the roof and need huge fans using much more electricity to deliver the same amount of heat.
Effective heat transfer combined with efficient heat sources make a hydronic system the smart and economical choice for both residential and commercial building.
Hydronic system are suited to all types of residential and commercial properties from heritage listed to cutting edge architectural.
Hydronic systems fit where traditional ducting doesn’t making it ideal for building with limited space or raked ceilings.
Whether it is underfloor, diffusion plate or radiator panel there is a hydronic solution suited to any residential or commercial application.
A comfortable environment is one which is not offensive to any of the five senses; i.e. sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Hydronic Heating stacks up better than any other source of heating allowing it to easily have the title of ”the world’s most comfortable heating solution”.
Sight: From a visual and decorating point of view, you simply cannot get a less intrusive heating system than radiant floor. The radiator is the floor. We can actually enhance the visual appeal of a space by making it possible to use natural stone, tile, and polished concrete. Materials that people love, but often reject, simply because they are considered to be too cold to walk or stand on.
Sound: It is quiet. Silence is one of the great unsung benefits of radiant heating systems. No big noisy fan, just quiet comfort. You seldom ever know when a radiant system is running because you can’t hear it.
Touch: You feel warmer. A radiant system warms up all of the surfaces around you, including the walls and ceilings. You feel warmer in a radiantly heated room, even if the air temperature in the room is lower than you are used to.
Taste & Smell: Traditional systems blast air through ducting that over time becomes dusty and dirty creating a stale smell and taste. Hydronic systems heat the natural way keeping your air and home clean.
Healthy: Hydronic systems help reduce the trigger of asthma and allergies by eliminating the spread of dust mites and allergens providing clean hygienic warmth throughout the building.
That’s why leading health care professionals recommend hydronic systems to asthma and allergy suffers.
