Hydronic Systems


Find professionals in your area.


In a hydronic heating system, water is heated by a boiler and then circulated to every room in the house to baseboard units, stand alone radiators, or radiant tubing hidden in the floors.  The result is healthy, quiet, draft-free, clean, and comforting warmth.  Your home will no longer have hot spots, cold spots or drafts . just gentle, even heat that automatically regulates itself to your desired comfort level.  And it is very quiet! You will not even notice that the heating system is operating.

Hydronic heating systems include condensing boilers that can have 95 percent efficiency ratings and have modulating burners.  These units are small and can supply enough hot water for household use and heat a home up to 2500 . 3000 square feet in size. 

A hydronic system can satisfy all your heating needs, even when you remodel or expand your home.  Hydronic heating is the answer for comfort to every part of your home, inside and outside.

Gentle Baseboard and Radiator Heating

Millions of American homes have used baseboard units and/or radiators to heat their homes for many years.  A central boiler circulates hot water to baseboard heating units or radiators throughout the house, delivering gentle, comforting heat.

Radiant Heating
In this fast growing use of hydronic heating, hot water circulates through extremely durable tubing installed in or under your floors, walls or ceilings.  This type of heating warms you and your furniture, not the air space in the room. 

Swimming Pool and Whirlpool Heating
It's easy to expand your Hydronic Heating system to include swimming pool and whirlpool heating.  Enjoy a refreshing swim or a relaxing soak at the exact temperature of your choice and extend your swimming and whirlpool season by months!

Ductless Heating System
If a traditional heating system would be difficult to install, consider a natural gas ductless system.  A ductless heater allows you to enjoy the warmth of gas heat without adding ductwork or a chimney.  A ductless heater is efficient and easy to install.  Direct vent models can be installed anywhere there is an outside wall and are ideal for heating the whole house.  The vent-free models are ideal for supplemental heat in a room or can supply emergency heat during a power failure.

Combo Heating System

This space-saving system provides low-maintenance gas water heating and space heating using a direct-vent storage water heater or tankless water heater.  For space heating, hot water is pumped from the water heater to a coil in the air handler, where air is heated and circulated through the residence. 

Integrated Mechanical System
The system integrates heating, water heating and even cooling into one package.  It combines a condensing tankless domestic hot water heater, heat recovery or energy recovery ventilator and a modulating warm-air furnace, all pre-wired/pre-plumbed and built into one box.  Common applications include in-floor radiant heating, pool heating, snow melt, etc.

Considerations:

  1. Sizing - Ask your licensed contractor to determine the appropriate heater capacity based on the size on your room, insulation value of your windows, walls and roof.
  2. Installation - Proper installation by a licensed contractor is critical for your heater to perform to its potential.
  3. Compare quotes - Compare different products, and get written installation quotes from several licensed contractors along with references before you sign a contract.
