The hydronic heating systems have become a popular choice over the years. The price of energy has increased and this has opened the eyes of many homeowners to the money saving benefits of this home heating solution. The hydronic heating systems as a heating solution are more efficient when it is compared with the forced air heating. It is also ideal for those people who have allergies. Here are some of the reasons as to why you should select the hydronic heating to heat your home:
Anti-allergy: The dust and allergens are not swept through the air with the heat since there is no forced air circulation thereby requiring less cleaning!
Cheaper to run: In a way, you are heating up your home with heated water. When you heat that water with gas, it implies cheaper running costs when taken into comparison with any other electric powered system. Ducted and Split Heating systems run on electricity. The exposed pipes in a Hydronic System are also insulated and water is also highly efficient in retaining temperate in order to further reduce loss and minimize the energy requirements.
Control of individual room temperatures: You will be able to control each radiator independently for temperature meaning that you will easily be able to set a comfortable temperature for every room.
Fuel Sources: Despite the fact that our entire systems are powered by a high-efficiency boiler, you can still select from a number of fuel sources.
Integrate The Latest Technologies: You can run hydronic heating system from the standard thermostats; you will also be able to configure it into a wireless control system which will be able to communicate with your smart phone. You can also set it and forget it from a wall mounted thermostat.
With the help of hydronic heating systems, you can also make hot water although not very efficiently. The reason for this is that it has to heat the water through a heat exchanger. It also means that the “boiler” will run the whole summer to make your hot water. In turn, this will mean a warm basement. Hence, if there is an A/C in your house, it will take a long time to cool off the house. This is because of the heat generated in the boiler.
Quiet Operation: When you install this heating system in your house only a minimal noise will be heard. This noise is that of the boiler when it is heating the water.
Safe to touch: The radiator panels are safe to touch with only mild temperatures and this is why they are perfect for homes with children.
Zoning: It will also be possible for you to switch off zones in those rooms which are not in use thereby saving energy. Moreover, if you don’t have a huge house with unused rooms, it may be that this feature will be of no use to you. You can ask yourself why if you own a big house with unused rooms. While you go about in installing hydronic heating, when you add more zones, it means that you are also adding to the cost of installation. Hence, if you want each room in a different zone, you will need to pay for the extra privilege.
It is a fact that the Hydronic Heating is more expensive to install. But the payback for the years you have it installed far outweighs this initial cost.
