Underfloor Heating

Are you considering under floor heating for your Tasmanian home?

No longer is underfloor heating considered a luxury.  Underfloor heating is affordable, convenient, and environmentally friendly. Plus it offers a healthy way of keeping your family warm during the cold Tasmanian weather. Under floor heating systems are becoming the most popular form of central heating in Australia, and the hydronic heating systems are no exception. 

Hydronic heating systems achieve their home warming qualities by using hot water to provide heat throughout the entire home or building.  A boiler (most commonly a gas fired boiler) is used to heat the water which is then pumped through the floor coils. The hydronic under floor heating system, otherwise known as slab heating, is a water based heating system. Compared to under floor electric heaters, which use electrical conduction to heat your home, hydronic systems, as a result of being water based, are very quiet when in operation. 

You do not require a specific type of floor to be able to install and use them properly as is the case with electric systems.  When heating, an even distribution of warmth occurs, heating the entire room, not just the floor receiving warmth. The initial outlay to have a hydronic under floor heating system installed can be considered expensive, although this is compensated by its efficiency which has been found to be 30-40% more efficient than systems running on electricity. 

For allergy sufferers under floor heating systems offer good solutions as they dont blow dust and allergens around your home. If you want constant warmth, comfortable and healthy heating for your family home, then under floor heating is the healthiest and most cost effective option!

Imagine never having cold feet

If you live in the colder parts of Australia, like Tasmania, then you'll be familiar with our cold winter mornings, when you are nice and warm in bed and have to get up.  You jump out of bed, put your feet on the cold floor, and run to the bathroom barefooted.  Your feet are numb by the time you put some socks on.  Is this a familiar scenario to you? Well, Hydronic Home has a solution… install hydronic under floor heating! 

Under floor heating offers a luxurious and immensely satisfying form of home heating. When considering the type of heating you’d like to use for your next home, consider installing a hydronic under floor heating system.  Put an end to icy cold feet and forget the need to have to search for your slippers in the dark ever again!

Many people will debate that Hydronic Home heating systems are just like any other form of central heating systems but it is not until you experience the constant warmth and comfortable heat of a hydronic heating system, free of cold draughts and noisy fans, that you can say this form of heating, whether it is a panel radiator system or a floor heating system, is far superior to any other form of heating out on the market.

My husband and I purchased a turn of the century property in North Hobart in September 2016, which had one heat pump and several open fire places.  As my husband has both asthma and eczema, we knew that another option had to be found!  We had gas heating at our previous property, and were very interested in gas hydronic heating for this new house after friends of ours changed their heating to gas hydronic a year earlier.  They recommended Hydronic Home to us, and we have never looked back.  Kevin Haley and his apprentice Dan were absolutely brilliant!  Kevin attended our property several times prior to installation to explain the function of the heating system, how it would work for us and the placement of the radiators in our house.  He also installed a separate continuous flow hot water unit so that in the unlikely event of the heating unit failing, we would still have hot water available. His quote was very competitive and the service provided was exemplary.  We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kevin Haley and Hydronic Home to anyone fortunate enough to be considering gas hydronic heating as an option. We are now looking forward to next winter's arrival, because we know we have installed the best heating available - and suitable - for Tasmania's climate.
