Hydronic heating offers several benefits over ducted and central heating systems. These include improved design options and overall visual aesthetics, cleaner air, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy costs.
Cleaner Air – Allergy-Free
While most conventional heating systems circulate air that can be full of dust, pollen, pet dander and other allergens, hydronic systems distribute heat without the use of ductwork. As a result, they do not introduce airborne contaminants into the home and do not dry out the air as much, which can affect your skin, eyes and throats.
Reduced Greenhouse Gas Emissions – Lower your carbon footprint and energy costs with a system that uses the least amount of energy for heating and cooling. This makes hydronic heating a great option for both new and existing homes.
Less Noise – No fan and no ductwork means there is no annoying sound or humming that can disturb you or your family. It also allows you to control your heat individually so that you only use what you need.
Improved Safety – No ducts means there is no chance of fire or injury. This is particularly important for children and the elderly, who may be more sensitive to electrical hazards.
Better Energy Efficiency – Water has been proven to be 4 times more efficient than electricity at transporting heat. It is also more stable, meaning it has the ability to distribute heat evenly throughout your home, eliminating uncomfortable hot spots or warm draughts.
