An Insight Into Hydronic Heating
How does hydronic heating work? It's actually incredibly simple. Water is heated inside a central boiler, just like a typical hot water system. The heated water is then transported around the home via internal pipes inside the walls.
This hot water never leaves the pipes. It is recirculated through panel radiators and back to the boiler where it is heated once again.
Typically there is one radiator installed in each room. Common locations for radiator panels include the bathroom, bedroom and living room. As a result, heat is distributed evenly without the use of a fan, achieving a constant and comfortable warmth.
Underfloor heating is also available. Pipes and coils can be installed among a home's slab, doubling the home heating efficiency. And since both water and concrete act as highly efficient heat conductors, underfloor heating is a wonderful installation option for bathrooms. Likewise so are heated towel rails for an extra touch of comfort and luxury.
Hydronic Heating System Service
Ongoing care and maintenance of hydronic heaters is the best way to make the most of your home heating. Hydronic heating is one of - if not the most - efficient heating systems in the world. Heated water flows through plumbing inside the walls, with the radiant heat dispersed throughout a room via a radiator.
Now, it's easy to install this type of heater and set and forget. There are no filters to clean. However, waiting until your heating system breaks to call a technician will leave your home cold and frosty on a winter's night.
You want to stay on top of the hydronic heating system's servicing needs for an efficient heating solution.
Here at Jim's Air Conditioning, our expert technicians are fully licensed and qualified to water heater/boiler maintenance and repairs. We will also provide a thorough inspection of the hydronic heater's plumbing and pipework to see that everything is flowing smoothly.
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. Contact us today for more information.
Hydronic Heating Benefits
Hydronic heating units are one of the most efficient heating systems to use. And you'll be pleased to know that the leading benefits can positively impact various aspects of your daily life.
High Heating Efficiency
Water is a far stronger conductor than air, providing fast and efficient heat transfer throughout a space. It also makes for highly effective floor heating, something that a traditional split system or gas heater cannot provide.
Meanwhile, an even spread of heat around the room means warm air does not quickly rise to the top. Instead, the radiant heat disperses without creating uneven hot and cold patches.
Environmentally Friendly Operation
Since the heated water remains inside a closed plumbing system, you're not constantly bringing in new water. The existing supply is continuously recycled through pipes and radiator panels. Therefore, you're saving costs on water usage while reducing environmental waste. A cost effective heating solution is in reach for all.
Positive Health Impact
Some traditional refrigerant heaters can easily dry out the skin and eyes. Allergens, bacteria and dust can be transported throughout a house via dirty filters. That doesn't occur with hydronic radiators.
There is no inbuilt fan blowing hot air around. Instead, radiant heat naturally fills a space. It's an incredibly natural way to heat a house to the desired temperature.
Types of Hydronic Heating Systems
Depending on your existing fuel sources available, you could have a few options to choose from for hydronic heating. There are a range of boilers available, each with there own respective strengths.
A gas boiler is the most common heat source for hydronic heaters. Installation is simple while natural gas is a cost-effective fuel. Paired with efficient conductive heating and you have a fairly low-cost heating source for regions where low temperatures are incredible common.
If you don't have access to natural gas, an electric water heater is a traditional choice for hydronic systems. The running costs are typically higher, however, unless paired with solar panels. Regardless, the heat output remains highly efficient.
Heat Pump Hydronic Heating
A heat pump uses a small amount of electricity to power a fan that absorbs and heats external air. It's an energy efficient alternative to a standard electric hot water boiler. Heat pump hydronic heating provided environmentally friendly solutions for a range of homes.
Solar Hydronic Combination
The power of natural sunlight can be harnessed to keep your home warm in one of the most energy efficient options on the market. Solar panels absorb the sun's heat, with the heat transferred through to the stored water.
The combination of energy from the sun and highly conductive ambient heat provides all-round heating efficiency for any house.
Hydronic Heating Cost
Hydronic heating systems are praised as one of the most cost-effective heating models available. There's minimal heat loss while the highly conductive powers of water means you're saving money on daily running costs.
It's one of the best options for colder Australian regions. And with a range of options including radiant heating and underfloor heating, you can enjoy a solution tailored to your needs.

Hydronic Heating FAQs
Hydronic heating is one of the most reliable and efficient heating solutions on offer.
Can hydronic heating be installed in existing homes?
Yes, hydronic systems can be installed into an existing home, although it can be a costly measure. For example, underfloor heating would require new concrete slabs in living areas. The highly invasive installation would not be the most convenient for many households.
Internal plumbing for the radiators can also prove to be tricky. You should expect to see some major work taking place so the appropriate piping and plumbing can be installed.
How much maintenance does a hydronic system need?
Because it’s a closed system, hydronic heating doesn’t need as much maintenance as ducted air conditioning or wall furnaces. There are no filters to clean or fans to replace. However, the hydronic boiler will need to be serviced, just like a typical hot water system. Radiators also require cleaning and maintenance to prevent build up in the pipes.
Does hydronic heating take a long time to heat the room?
Hydronic heating will not provide an instant warmth like a split system. However, the steady rise in temperature delivers far more consistent heating. Hot air does not instantly rise to the top of a room; instead, it flows into every corner with an even spread. You can expect a comfortable warmth within 15-30 minutes.
