One of the most used heating systems, the hydronic heating system has been around for decades. That’s because it can be used in large-scale buildings (like campus facilities, offices) for both heating and air-conditioning since it can include both chilled and heated water loop.
Below are 7 other benefits of using hydronic heating systems:
#1 Safe & Healthy
With most heating systems there is a risk of exposed flames or fire hazards, but with hydronic heating systems, there are no such risks since they are completely sealed.
They are dust and allergen-free and pose no potential leaks of any kind that might cause harm.
#2 Easy to Navigate
The temperature of the water that circulates in the hydronic heating system is completely adjustable according to clients’ individual needs and preferences. You do not need a lot of knowledge to adjust the settings, and once you find the perfect temperature you don’t have to do anything else.
Schedule a regular annual service of the boiler (since it is a gas appliance) and you will be fine.
#3 Reliable & Clean
The hydronic system is installed by experts and once it is set, you do not need to do anything else besides set the temperature you want.
No need to add fuels, clean filters or wipe dust. Hydronic heating is completely reliable and clean!
#4 Hydronic Heating Systems are Cost-Effective
Depending on the size of your home or business, you will see quite a significant savings if you switch from a ducted system to a hydronic heating system.
In general, the hydronic heating systems are around 15-20% less expensive to operate in comparison with the ducted systems. If your home is bigger with higher ceilings, these costs savings will double to 30-40%.
#5 Environmentally Friendly
Since they are utilizing water and natural gas and providing warmth the same way nature does, the hydronic heating is considered an eco-friendly alternative that can use up to 70% less energy in comparison with the electricity-dependent reverse cycle systems.
#6 Can Warm Your Tiles & Floors
Your feet won’t freeze in the morning when you wake up and run to the bathroom. The radiant flooring is infusing the floors with heat, making the previously stone-cold tiles into a source of warmth. It is beneficial not only for you but also for your pets who simply love stretching on the floor.
#7 Hydronic Heating Systems are Much Quieter
The hydronic heating systems work in silence and with them, you won’t be bothered by the sounds of a heating unit kicking on and off during the night. The steady heat from the hydronic heating system will radiate into the room quietly and all you will feel is a comfortable heat.
