Questions & answers

No, not every home, but most can. It all depends on the characteristics of your individual home. If you’re building a new home, or an extension, there should be no problem.

If you want to add hydronic heating to an existing home, there are extra factors to consider. Options include using radiator panels, and adding another level above your existing floor. We’ll be happy to advise you on how hydronic heating can work in your home.

Hydronic heating uses gentle radiant heat, which gives you true thermal comfort by warming all of the objects the room. That’s natural warmth, much better than hot air being blown into the room. Hot water is quietly circulated through pipes to efficiently distribute the heat as required, usually by radiator panels or inslab piping. Why water? Because it can carry much more more heat than air. Think of hydronic heating as a delivery system, and it opens up the option of using the fuel source of your choice. Gas. Electric. Biofuel. Heat Pump. Solar. Your hydronic heating system can work with all of these. We’ll help you choose the best options to meet your needs.
Because you have a choice of heat sources, you can decide which fuel will be the most economical now, and in the future. Each room or area can be individually controlled so only the required amount of heat (and energy) is used. Because hydronic heating warms everything in the room, you can set the thermostat lower than with forced air systems. Each degree you lower the thermostat reduces your energy use, and cost, by about 10%.
