Hydronic heating is a safe, quiet, clean and economical source of warmth for your home.
Water is heated in a boiler while a circulating pump quietly moves the water through a network of insulated pipe work delivering the heated water to the heating mediums throughout the home.
The basic system is controlled by a room thermostat positioned in the home, allowing you to programme the times and temperature you want the heating system to start and stop.
The heating mediums can be either or a combination of Panel Radiators, Slab Heating, Natural Convectors, Floor Ducts, towel rails, just to name a few.
The heating mediums radiate heat in straight lines like the rays of the sun gently warming what they hit and natural convection, as the air warms it slowly moves, circulating warm air around the whole room, this can be compared to a pleasant spring or autumn day.
The function of hydronic heating is to have an even comfortable temperature throughout the whole home, this is achieved by having your heating system designed correctly, each room is calculated separately to determine the heat load required.
From this heat load calculation the size of the heating mediums can be chosen for each room and the size of the boiler required.
To correctly calculate the heat loads a floor plan and elevation of the building with all measurements clearly marked is required, the plans should include room length and width, floor to ceiling heights, all window sizes
