All About Hydronic Heating

Hydronic heating, as the name suggests, uses water to heat your home in winter. The process begins with water being warmed to a specific temperature inside a central gas boiler.

The heated water next travels through internal pipes to radiators. Each radiator spreads the heat in an even manner, keeping your rooms at a stable, comfortable warm temperature.

Hydronic heating is energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Water that is used for the process is recirculated and recycled throughout the system, preventing wastage.

At Upside Down, our heating and cooling technicians are specialists in hydronic heating installation, maintenance and repair.

Due to its efficiency, hydronic heating is popular in Europe and the US to cope with harsh winters. Systems can be installed in modern and older homes - just ask our technicians for advice.

Great Service on Hydronic Heating

Hydronic heating systems should be serviced regularly for preventative maintenance. A regular service schedule ensures your system operates at its best and is ready for chilly winter months.

Regular maintenance also avoids the need for future repairs, which can be invasive and costly. During a hydronic heater service, Upside Down technicians inspect the entire system and boiler unit.

As part of the service, our technicians will:

  • Test the thermostat
  • Check gas pressures and connections
  • Check pipes
  • Inspect radiators
  • Ensure all internal parts are in good working order

Save with Hydronic Heating

With hydronic heating, operating costs are about 35 per cent less than gas alternatives, while energy use is about 70 per cent less than electricity. It is one of the most efficient and economical heating solutions available.

Water is a great conductor of heat, making hydronic systems capable of quickly heating rooms. Meanwhile, gas is a cheaper form of energy than electricity. Combine it with hydronic heating and you’re making a genuine saving. Electricity can be used in hydronic heating as well.

As a bonus, hydronic systems can also be used for cooling. If your hydronic system’s temperature is set lower than the temperature of the room, it can take the edge off the heat and boost the efficiency of your air conditioner.
