What is Hydronic Heating?
Although most conventional homes use a forced air heating system, hydronic heating systems might prove to be a better alternative.
Forced air heating uses air to transfer heat throughout the home from the furnace. Hydronic systems circulate water via piping as a heat-transfer method instead of air. Baseboard heaters and radiators throughout the house extract the heat from the water and radiate it to the surrounding air.

THE ADVANTAGES OF HYDRONIC HEATING
There are some distinct advantages to choosing a hydronic heating system. Some of those benefits include:
- Very Quiet – Hydronic heating works without a lot of noise – only the water heater or boiler working.
- Lower Energy Consumption – Hydronic heating systems feel warmer at lower settings.
- Efficient – Hydronic heating takes less energy to circulate water than it takes to blow hot air.
- Less Allergens – No blowing air means that dust and germs don’t circulate as easily.
- Easy Installation – No ductwork or vents makes installation easy for new constructions.
It is important to note that although hydronic heating systems are an ideal option for certain situations, there are also some disadvantages to consider. Make sure to consult with our team of professionals to find out if hydronic systems make sense for your particular home.
WHICH ONE IS BETTER?
FORCED AIR VS. HYDRONIC HEATING SYSTEMS
In the hydronic heating systems vs. forced air debate, both have their benefits and drawbacks. Radiant heating is the more efficient system but more costly for installation, while forced air is cheaper to install but is not as energy-efficient. Hydronic heating systems are the most ideal for new builds because the floors have not been installed yet nor will there be a need to install ductwork.
