Modern technology allows for several forms of innovation when it comes to staying warm throughout the winter. Some products are however more suitable for certain homes than others. 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.
A hydronic heating system consists of 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
- A pump, which is used to circulate water through the pipes, to the radiators and back again
These components work together to deliver heat precisely where you want it and when you want it. Unlike a tradition furnace, there are no airborne particles, making it a great option for allergy suffers.
