Here’s how it works:
The heat source is a boiler fueled most often by oil or gas, with a certified efficiency rating. A small pump circulates heated water through baseboard units, radiators, or in-floor radiant tubing in each room, where warmth is distributed evenly without fan noise or blowing air.
Operation is automatic; indoor temperature is maintained at the desired level, regardless of changes in weather, with one setting of the room thermostat. Hydronic heat can be arranged in zones to bring the correct amount of heat to each area of the house, satisfying comfort requirements and containing energy costs. And auxiliary heating needs, such as domestic hot water, snow melting or swimming pool heating can be easily met by the hydronic system. Homeowners we’ve met tell us their hydronic systems are reliable, clean and efficient.
