Hydronic heating is a system that relies on the flow of heated water, which is constantly recycled and re-used to minimise water usage. It’s commonly used to heat floors in Melbourne properties, but can also be used to heat walls, floors, or even towel hangers in a bathroom.
Using solar energy or gas boilers, hydronic heating is an incredibly cost efficient and effective method for staying warm through Melbourne’s cold months.
Why choose hydronic heating for your home?
It’s important to know if a hydronic heating system is going to be the right heating solution for your property. The team at WeatherWorld can help you with any questions you may have, but generally there are some benefits that this method has that can give you an idea:
- The ability to warm floors: having underfloor hydronic heating means no more getting out of bed onto a cold floor. Instead, you’re heated comfortably from the feet up; no other system provides warmth in quite the same way
- Gentle and comfortable heat: some heating systems can be quite aggressive, often blowing hot air out like wind. This method promotes quite a gentle radiation of heat through your floors, walls or radiators, which makes the entire home comfortable without being too forceful
- Effectively control different zones: to make sure your energy output is minimised, you can choose where in the house gets heated up at what time
- No compromise on aesthetics: many hydronic heating systems are hidden under the floorboards so you can’t see them at all. Radiators are in incredibly stylish and modern designs, usually becoming a feature of your home
- A healthy heating option: because of the way in which heat travels through the floor or radiators in a hydronic heating system, it is incredibly healthy and non-evasive
How Does Hydronic Heating Work?
Hydronic heating systems work through a constant heating of re-circulating water located in pipes usually underneath the floor. Usually hydronic heating systems operate through gas boilers which can achieve efficiency ratings of up to 95 percent. You can go one step further and make it even more cost efficient for your home by installing a solar network to power your hydronic heating system.
Hydronic heatings primarily runs off water, the water is constantly recycled and re-circulated as it is a closed system. Through this method you don’t need to use much water at all, all you need to do is top it up a little each year.
