Hydronic Heating Specialists
As the temperature drops it is time to rethink how you heat your home. Hydronic heating is extremely popular throughout Europe and for good reason. It is a clean, an energy efficient and a cost effective way to heat your house. Exeter Plumbing’s hydronic heating specialists can expertly install, service and repair your hydronic heating system.
What Is Hydronic Heating?
A hydronic heating system uses extremely efficient gas boilers to heat water and move the water though a series of pipes. This system is a closed circulatory system in which the used water is returned back to the boiler to be reheated and the cycle continues.
Hydronic heating can be used in a fixed panel radiator attached to a wall, underfloor heating and/or heated towel rails. For added comfort each radiator may be adjusted to the perfect temperature for that particular room.
Is Hydronic Heating Cost Effective?
Yes, hydronic heating is extremely cost effective. In a standard house with a ceiling height of 2.7 metres a hydronic heating system will cost you approximately 20% less to run than a ducted system. Ironically, the higher the ceilings the greater the savings.
How Fast Can A Hydronic Heater Heat A Room?
Hydronic heating can noticeably increase the temperature of a room in 15 minutes depending on the size of the room. Although ducted heating can heat a room faster, a hydronic heater does beat traditional wood fires.
How Safe Is Hydronic Heaters For People With Allergies?
A hydronic heater is a closed circuit and relies on radiant heat. As a result it is great for people with allergies. This type of heating is commonly used in hospitals as it does not impact the air flow and therefore it does not cause any dust or allergen particles to move around the room. Such systems are easy to clean as they are either in the floor or through a panel fixed to the wall.
Are Hydronic Heating Systems Hard To Maintain?
Hydronic heating is relatively low maintenance with only a gas boiler to really worry about. A gas boiler needs to be serviced to maintain its efficiency and longevity. At Exeter Plumbing we recommend servicing gas boilers as per manufacture recommendations. Depending on the type, manufactures generally recommend servicing your boiler every 1-2 years.
