An Insight Into Hydronic Heating

You may have guessed from the name, but hydronic heaters involve the use of water to create heat. Sound simple?

Well, it is! The heating process begins inside a central gas boiler that is installed in your home. The water inside the boiler is warmed up until it reaches a specific temperature.

Next, hot water is transported through internal pipes that run along the inside of your walls. The water then arrives at panel radiators, which are typically installed in each room. These radiators then distribute the heating evenly throughout the room, achieving a constant and comfortable warmth.

Hydronic heating can also flow through your home's floor, however, that is best installed as a house is being built. In this process, the heated water is dispersed throughout coils of piping beneath a slab of concrete. Concrete is a great heat conductor, and so the warmth is spread evenly throughout the floor's surface area.

Hydronic Heating System Service

To ensure that your hydronic heating system is always working at its best, regular services should be carried out.

Preventative maintenance is always the road to go down. Waiting until your heating system breaks to call a technician can leave your home cold and frosty on an icy winter's night. Keeping on top of your heating system's servicing needs will ensure your home is kept warm and cosy throughout the colder months.

Here at Jim's Air Conditioning, our expert technicians are fully licensed and qualified to offer the best hydronic heating service available. We always arrive at each job equipped and ready with the latest in industry tools and technology.

When servicing your hydronic heating unit, our team will inspect the entire system, including the pipes and water boiler. Our qualified professionals can do it all. If you need water leaks fixed, timers repaired, thermostat problems solved, or faults in your gas line located, Jim's Air Conditioning is here for you!

Hydronic Heating Benefits

Hydronic heating units are one of the most efficient systems to use. As water conducts heat better than air, these systems disperse heat throughout a room with greater ease.

Hot water used is also recycled back through the hydronic system, ready to be recirculated when needed. This prevents wastage, adding to the eco-friendly benefits of these heating systems.

Other benefits include:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Cost-effective
  • Creates clean and healthy airflow
  • Safe heating option with no dangerous exposed elements
  • Even heat distribution for maximum home comfort

Heat is also distributed evenly. Have you ever switched on a heater and noticed that the hot air only seems to cover a tiny section of the otherwise freezing room?

Well, this won't be an issue! The hydronic design works wonders for keeping every corner of your home in warm comfort at all times.

Types of Hydronic Heating Systems

There are many types of hydronic heating systems available now to suit any home. Our experienced hydronic heating specialists can recommend a type that would match your home's needs and requirements.

Gas Boiler

A gas boiler is the most common source of heat for hydronic heaters. A gas boiler has a lot of benefits going for it:

  • Installation is easy
  • Gas is a cost-effective heating source
  • Very efficient
  • Available as natural gas or LPG
  • Can also be used for your domestic hot water

A gas boiler is typically our first recommendation when looking at types of hydronic heating systems for residential homes. The many benefits listed above are simply too good to pass up!

Electric Boiler

Don't have access to gas? Or maybe you just prefer electric? Then an electric boiler might be just what you're looking for.

You might consider installing an electric boiler for a few reasons:

  • Less costly upfront
  • Smaller in size
  • Quiet operaiton
  • Can also be used to heat domestic water
  • Great option for homes with no access to natural gas

The main downside to an electric boiler is the ongoing running cost. Compared to gas, you'll be paying more to keep those winter chills at bay.

Heat Pump Hydronic Heating

Ever considered heating your home with just energy from the air? With heat pump hydronic heating, you can do just this. A heat pump uses a small amount of electricity to power a fan but then uses energy from the air to heat water in a tank which you can use to keep your home warm.

The benefits of heat pump hydronic heating don't stop there though:

  • Extremely energy efficient
  • Very low running costs
  • Can also be used to heat domestic water
  • Great option for homes with no access to natural gas
  • More environmentally friendly

Solar Hydronic Combi

Harness the power of the sun to keep your home warm this winter with a solar hydronic combi. With an electric or gas booster, you'll be warm on even the cloudiest of days.

You might consider a solar hydronic combi for your hydronic heating system for a number of reasons:

  • Very low running costs
  • Energy efficient
  • Can also be used to heat domestic water
  • More environmentally friendly

No matter the type of hydronic heater you're after, Jim's Air Conditioning can do it all.

Hydronic Heating Cost

Hydronic heating systems are praised as one of the most cost-effective heating models available. A huge contributor to this is their design.

These systems can operate multiple piping works from a single boiler, meaning that your home's heating can be customised to your preferences. You can adjust the heating in each room to suit that particular space.

For example, you can set your bedrooms at a lower temperature than rooms with communal use, such as a living room.

This feature of hydronic heating is very energy efficient and will minimise your household's overall energy consumption and heat loss. Ultimately, this will benefit your bank account, as lower energy usage means reduced power bills.

We do understand that, while long term savings are appealing, the initial costs of installation may not be in everyone's budget. Luckily, we offer our customers a range of $0 deposit interest free payment plans**.

These plans can be tailored to suit your needs and can be repaid either weekly or fortnightly. Your on-site technician will happily sign you up on the spot - it only takes a few minutes!

Hydronic Heating FAQs

It's reliable and efficient, but we're sure you have a few more questions on hydronic heaters.

Because it’s a closed system, hydronic heating doesn’t need as much maintenance as air conditioning or wall furnaces. It doesn’t need filters regularly cleaned for instance. That said, the boiler benefits from annual servicing by a specialist to ensure optimum performance.

You can have a hydronic system put into an existing home. It does depend on the way the house has been constructed. With houses on concrete slabs, the installation costs may be prohibitive, but older homes are more suitable. A Jim’s technician can assess your place and advise you on the best option.

Hydronic heat is not instant, but a steady warm up to a comfortable temperature takes from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on various factors such as the size of the room, the system and how cold the room is. Having the system on a timer is the best way to ensure that you come home to a deliciously warm house.
