Hydronic Heating is often referred to as radiant heating and a lot of people like the idea that hydronic heating is an energy-efficient home heating system. Radiant Heating uses tubing to run a hot liquid under the floor or to baseboard heaters and radiators. Radiant heating or hydronic heating systems have become more and more popular with families that are looking for more comfort and zoned heating control.

Many people consider Hydronic heating because the zoning of radiant heat systems allows savings through lower heating bills. Hydronic heating also has a smaller environmental footprint.

There Are Many Benefits Of Hydronic Heating

There are many advantages of radiant heating or hydronic heating.

  • Zone heating allows for multiple zones in a house so you can regulate the heat more evenly. Rather than one thermostat for the entire house, you can differ the temperature by zones such as working areas,  bedrooms, and kitchens.
  • There is not an air cycle of pushing warm air out and attracting air in. You don’t have to worry as much about open and closed doors.
  • Radiant heat does not have a tendency to dry out your home. Convected heat uses liquid in a sealed system, so it does not change the humidity in your home.
  • There is no substitute for a warm floor on a cold day. In a radiant system the tubes beneath the floor spread out the heat and the flooring serves as a conductor to keep you nice and warm.
  • Hydronic heating is silent because air is not moving through pipes. There are no loud fans or the gush of moving air.
  • Tubes for radiant systems are not bulky and they are out of the way. Hydronic systems do not use air ducts, they are quieter, cleaner and consequently they do not stimulate, dust, pollen, and pet dander migration.
  • Radiant heat does a better job of preserving heat as there is no heat loss via spaces, joints, and air ducts.
  • Radiant systems doesnot force air out of the house so the heat stays in the home longer.

Categories of Radiant Heating Systems

When it comes to radiant heating systems, there are three distinct categories. They are electric radiant systems, hydronic or water-based radiant systems, and even air-based radiant systems.

1- Electric Radiant Heating Systems

The electric radiant heating system uses electric coils that produce heat. These coils can then heat ceilings walls or flooring. They are usually more energy-efficient for small areas of a home for areas such as bathrooms or driveways.

2 – Hydronic Radiant Heating Systems

Hydronic radiant heating systems use a boiler to pump heated water through a network of pipes throughout a house or floor. These systems are less expensive to operate than electrical heating systems, but they can have a risk of bursting or leaking. As a rule, heating your entire home hydronic radiant heating systems are more energy-efficient and also more cost-effective.

3 – Air Radiant Heating Systems

Air radiant heating systems use heated air for heat transfer. Of the three standard radiant heating systems, these are the least efficient. This is especially true if you have an older home with more areas with air leaks and cracks that can easily waste heat.
