Sometimes, the old ways really are the best ways.
While modern technology allows for several forms of innovation when it comes to staying warm throughout the winter, the products that come as a result are not always the right solution for every home or business owner. A hydronic heating system is a perfect example of this: although it performs the same function as a furnace or fireplace – heating your home – it does it using traditional technology: by using water as the heat-transfer medium.
There are two types of hydronic heating systems: radiator-based and in-floor. However, the important part – how they help you stay warm when during those frosty days – is essentially the same: by using either electricity or gas to heat the water.
A hydronic heating system also contains three main components: a boiler, which is used to heat the water; in-floor piping, or baseboards and radiators, which is installed against an outside wall; and a pump, which is used to circulate water through the pipes, to the radiator and back again.
