Hydronic Heating has been widely used in European countries for decades and is becoming a popular choice in Tasmania to stay warm and dry during our cold winters. Compared to other forms of heating, hydronic heating systems are a cost effective solution for your family.
Simply speaking, Hydronic heating is a form of heating that operates by warming water in a boiler and then passing the heated water through specially pressurised pipes to radiator panels or underfloor coils that are strategically installed throughout the home. The heat from these pipes, panels and coils is radiated out into the room. The cooled water is returned to the boiler to be reheated.
The boiler that heats the water is perhaps the most important part of the whole system. Boilers can run on electricity, natural gas, LPG, a geothermal heat pump, an electric heat pump, or even using solar power (with a gas booster for cloudy days).
The cost of running hydronic heating will depend almost solely on how the boiler is powered. All radiator panels and underfloor heating can be zoned, controlled to heat individual rooms or isolate rooms not being used, giving you complete control of temperature to your home.
