How does hydronic heating work? 2016-11-15T11:55:17+00:00

A hydronic heating system uses a boiler to heat water which is circulated by a pump through piping connected to radiator panels in each room, and is channelled back to the boiler for reheating. As heat gently transfers from the radiator panels, a programmable wall thermostat controls the temperature. Panels are warm within minutes and rooms comfortably warm in around fifteen to twenty minutes.
