How can we help you!

Here is a rough guide;

  • A 200m² home with 3 zones with gas boiler approximately $18,000.00 GST inclusive
  • A 200m² home with 3 zones and high efficiency heat pump approximately $22,000.00 GST inclusive
  • Radiator heating a fully installed radiator system for a medium sized home with gas boiler approximately $15,000.00 GST inclusive
  • Radiator heating a fully installed radiator system for a medium sized home with heat pump approximately $19,000.00 GST inclusive

Yes, most existing houses can have a hydronic system installed. Radiators can be retro fitted and an on slab underfloor system may be achievable.

Contact us today for a free consultation.

Radiator panels have a mild surface temperature of 55 degrees Celsius which means it is safe for children, elderly and household pets.

No special concrete is required however the 16mm heating pipe needs a minimum concrete cover of 30mm and a max of 70mm (50mm recommended). Depending on engineering specification and type of floor covering, thicker reinforcing may be required.

No a corrosion inhibitor is added to the water to prevent scale build up and corrosion.

Radiant heating systems heat people and objects throughout the room, so you can feel the difference. It simply eliminates cold draughts and keeps the heat warming you and objects around you, not the air.

If you are planning to stay longer than 2 years a heat pump is the best option. A heat pump costs around $4,000.00 more than a boiler however pay back is around 2 years and the heat pump has a 5-year warranty. Heat pumps can also chill the floor and running costs can be fully offset with a solar system. See solar heating and cooling in our products page for additional information.

Yes we can combine domestic hot water and add solar removing the need for additional hot water heat source.

A hydronic system costs between 2-3 times a much to install. However the initial outlay can quickly be recovered by using the system efficiently. Average 2/3rds the running costs compared to ducted. A hydronic system has many benefits over a ducted system and must be experienced to really appreciate the difference.

No there is currently no rebates available for hydronic heating however there are rebates for our domestic hot water systems.

Absolutely a combination system with radiators and underfloor heating are commonly used for two story homes underfloor heating for the ground floor and radiators for upstairs.

Definitely we have completed many projects with timber floor including bamboo, hardwoods, engineered timber and parquetry.

Some care needs to be taken when selecting a timber floor to lay over underfloor heating. Contact us for more information.

Yes heat pumps are available in reverse cycle and capable of cooling the slab. Radiant cooling dramatically reduces the base cooling load of a building and when combined with correct air circulation provides an energy efficient, cost-effective cooling solution. Contact us today to discuss if a hydronic cooling system is right for you.

Yes an appropriately sized solar PV system combined with a high efficiency heat pump can heat and cool your home entirely from the sun’s energy. See solar heat and cooling in our products page for additional information.

Common Mistakes People Make Considering a Hydronic Floor Heating System

There are many misconceptions about hydronics out there, and some common errors may lead people away from this option. Watch out for mistakes such as:

  • Believing that forced air is the only way to go when it comes to heating your home. While it’s easy to feel that central air is the best and only way to enjoy quick and comfortable heat, that’s not true. Indeed, hydronics boast several advantages over ducted systems.
  • Thinking that hydronic underfloor heating won’t provide as satisfying a feeling or experience as another type of system. We like to say that it has to be experienced to be believed, and that’s no exaggeration. Because radiant systems heat the people and objects in the room directly, you’ll feel much more comfortable.
  • Misunderstanding the potential range of applications for underfloor heating or feeling dissuaded by concerns about energy consumption. While electric underfloor systems can be pricier, hydronics are a value-filled package.

Tips for Getting More Value Out of Using Water for Underfloor Heating

Let’s say you do decide to pursue an underfloor system. How can you ensure that you make the most of your investment?

  • Take the time to evaluate your options and explore the pros and cons. While a hydronic underfloor heating system may not be ideal for every home, many homeowners can enjoy the benefits they bring. Consider using a larger renovation project as the opportune time to overhaul your heating system, for example.
  • Rely on an experienced team of installers to guide you through the design and installation process to ensure that your system not only works perfectly but that you can also tap into valuable support whenever necessary.
  • Stay up to date on your maintenance. The good news is that these systems are inherently reliable; leaks are very rare, and a special corrosion inhibitor circulated with the water helps to prevent unwanted build-ups inside the hydronic system. However, annual maintenance and preventative care are both still necessary and will help to make the most of your investment..
