What Is a Hydronic Heating System?
A hydronic heating system is a system that uses hot water to heat the home. Basically, a gas boiler is used to produce heat using natural gas or propane. That heat is then transferred to water tubes in the heat exchanger. Water is heated up and then delivered throughout the home via baseboards, radiators, or heating tubes installed in the floor. The hot water then returns to the boiler. In addition to heating the home, this system can be used to supply your home with hot water.

What Are the Benefits of a Hydronic Heating System?
The following are some of the benefits of installing a hydronic heating system over a traditional forced-air heating system:
- Provide more even heating – With a forced-air heating system, the heat that comes out of your registers will quickly rise towards your ceilings and up to the second floor. This often leaves bottom levels of the home colder than top levels and also causes hard floors to be cold to the touch. With hydronic heating systems, the heat will rise from the floors. Not only does this provide more even heating throughout the home, but it also keeps your hard floors from staying cold.
- Have more control over heat in the home – With a forced-air heating system, if you want to heat up the living room, you’ll have to heat up the whole house. This isn’t very efficient if there’s nobody in the bedrooms. With hydronic heating, you can set up different zones throughout your home. You can control the temperature in these zones separately, thereby giving you more control over the temperature of each room.
- Improve energy efficiency – Hydronic heating is much more energy efficient, which means you can cut down on your monthly energy costs by installing a hydronic heating system. First of all, being able to control different zones means you won’t have to waste energy. Secondly, water is a better conductor of heat than air, which means less energy is needed to produce and distribute heat. Forced-air heating systems also tend to lose a lot of heat.
