HYDRONIC HEATING

How does it work?

  • Water is heated and distributed around your home, either in radiator panels usually mounted on the wall or via pipework located in the floor.
  • Unlike other heating systems that use fans or vents to blow warm air around the room, hydronic heating warms your living space through radiation, which results in an even distribution of heat.

Key Benefits

Savings

Cheaper
Long-Term

Although hydronic
heating can have
higher upfront costs,
it can require up to
30% less energy per
m2 to heat your
home than many
ducted or central
heating systems.

Allergy friendly-1

Allergy-Friendly

Hydronic heating
does not emit or
circulate airborne dust
particles or bacteria
like common ducted
or split system
heaters, making it
perfect for asthma or
allergy sufferers.

Moon

No Noise +
Out of Sight

Say goodbye to the
sound of your ducted
heating starting up
and the sight of
heating vents or split
systems around your
home. Instead, in-slab
hydronic heating is
neatly hidden and will
warm your home
without a sound.

Safe

Safest Heating

Hydronic heating is
one of the safest
available today. The
floor slabs are fully
enclosed, so there is
no danger of burning
or scalding and no
exposed flames,
electrical connections
or harmful toxins,
making it perfect for
the elderly, children
and pets.

Comfortable

Most Comfortable

Hydronic heating
distributes a
comfortable, even
heat from the floor up.
It takes your slab from
feeling cold and hard
underfoot to warm
and almost ‘soft’. Plus,
you can set up specific
zones to heat
different rooms at
varying temperatures.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hydronic heating? ­­
Hydronic heating is where a central heat source or heat pump warms the water and then distributes it via pipework to either radiator panels or a concrete slab to heat your home.

Is hydronic heating energy-efficient?
Water is a better heat conductor than air, so transferring heat throughout the home with a hydronic system is easier than via ductwork. In-slab heating systems are also less likely to cause heat loss through ceilings. As a result, hydronic systems are more energy-efficient than air systems.

Is hydronic heating worth it?
Depending on the heat source or heat pump, hydronic heating can be a cost-effective heating solution. It can require up to 30% less energy per m2 to warm a house than many ducted or central heating systems.

Does hydronic heating use gas?
A gas boiler can be used as a heating fuel source where electricity is not a suitable solution.

How do you install hydronic in-floor heating systems?
Hydronic pipework is fixed to an in-floor mounting system, so the pipework is evenly distributed. Generally, it is recommended to install hydronic heating during a new build; however, retrofitting can occasionally be accommodated depending on the existing infrastructure and flooring.

How do I turn on hydronic heating?
Systems are turned on either manually or via an automated timer. Some systems can be Wi-Fi-enabled and operated remotely.

Can I set different temperatures for different rooms?
Zoning allows you to isolate various spaces within your home to provide heat to the areas that need it. Radiator panels will also allow you to turn the heat off or keep them at a lower temperature in different rooms.

Does hydronic heating come with a warranty?
We provide a full warranty on all our workmanship and key suppliers, such as Dakin, Fujitsu and Mitsubishi. In addition, we provide a 5-year full parts and labour warranty for all domestic air conditioning systems sold in Australia.

What are other benefits of Hydronic heating?

  • When heating a concrete slab, the floor emits a layer of warm air that acts as an acoustic baffle, improving the acoustics of a room by reducing echoing.
  • Hydronic heating makes no air noise and has no air movement providing a subtle heat that radiates up from the floor.
  • Hydronic heating improves the feel of a concrete slab, making it feel almost “soft” underfoot.
