How Hydronic Heating Works

As the name suggests, hydronic heating uses hot water to heat your home in winter. You can install hydronic heating as either an underfloor heating system or in the walls of your home.

The process begins by warming water to a specific temperature inside a central gas boiler. The heated water next travels through internal pipes throughout the walls – or floors – to radiator panels. Each radiator spreads the radiant heat in a constant, even manner (the process is called thermal radiation), so your room has a comfortable warmth.

Due to its convenience, low maintenance, running costs and heat efficiency, hydronic underfloor heating is incredibly popular in Europe and North America during long, harsh winters.

Discover The Benefits of Hydronic Systems

The benefits of installing hydronic heating are well worth your consideration. Though initial purchase and installation costs may be higher than other heating systems, the advantages you'll enjoy will make it well worth your while. Hydronic heating offers:

  • Energy efficient heating: Hydronic systems boast superior energy efficiency, comparable to heat pump heating solutions, in their production of natural radiant heat. They use about 70% less energy than electricity-powered heaters. This is due to the recirculating and recycling of water throughout the system. Water is an excellent conductor of heat, and transfers it more effectively than air, preventing energy wastage, minimising heat loss and reducing your carbon footprint.
  • Consistent comfort: Underfloor heating means that hydronic systems provide consistent warmth throughout your home without the unwanted fluctuations of unexpected lower temperatures.
  • Quiet operation: Unlike central heating systems, hydronic systems operate silently and give you much-needed peace and quiet as well as optimal comfort.
  • Better air quality: Where traditional ducted systems may blow air throughout the home that is riddled with dust, pollen and other airborne pollutants, the absence of ducts in hydronic heaters effectively eliminates that problem.
  • Lower running costs: Lower ongoing running costs than the more familiar split or ducted system - roughly 35% less than gas-powered systems - will make the initial purchase and installation expenses just that little more palatable.
  • Low maintenance costs: Hydronic heaters have low maintenance needs, which helps to keep maintenance costs relatively low as well.

When it comes to talking about the benefits of hydronic heaters, we don't blow hot air for the sake of it. They're a more energy-efficient heat source for your home; one that comes with lower running and maintenance costs, and one that will do right by your home for years to come.

Hydronic System Applications

Metropolitan can install hydronic heating systems in an extensive range of ways. They include:

  • Underfloor heating systems: One of the most common options, underfloor heating involves installing tubes or mats that circulate hot water underneath the floor and radiate heat throughout your home.
  • Heated towel rails: No one wants to wrap a cold towel around themselves on a cold winter morning after stepping out of the shower. Hydronic-heated towel rails ensure your bathroom towel is toasty warm.
  • Radiators: Though not particularly common in homes across Australia, radiator panels can deliver effective performance and can come in a variety of sizes and designs.
  • Wall or ceiling panels: These work in a similar way to underfloor heating systems, but use sealed pipes or panels installed in the walls or ceilings to radiate heat. These are often the preferred installation choice when floor installation in an existing home is not feasible.

With a hydronic heating system, you can take a zoning approach if you wish. You can either install across every square metre of your property for a complete solution or install radiators in specific areas to target only the major cold spots of your home. Whichever option you choose, Metropolitan Air Conditioning is here to help.

Servicing of Hydronic Heating Systems

If you want to continue enjoying warm air throughout the house, you should regularly service your hydronic system to maintain optimal performance. Preventative maintenance and a regular servicing schedule ensure you continue to enjoy improved air quality and an effective and efficient system when you need it most. It'll also avoid the need for future repairs which could be incredibly invasive and disruptive.

During a hydronic heater service, our technicians will inspect the whole system and boiler unit. They can fix water leaks, thermostat issues, find faults in the gas line and repair timers. Our technicians can certainly help with any issue you may encounter!

Hydronic Heating FAQ

Metropolitan Air Conditioning answers your essential questions right here.
Hydronic heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat your house, comparable to heat pump technology. This is because water conducts heat energy better than air. Add a condensing boiler to your system and it becomes an even more efficient heating solution.
Hydronic heating is one of the most efficient and economical solutions available. Water is a great conductor, making hydronic systems capable of quickly bringing warmth to a room. Plus gas is a cheaper form of energy than electricity. Combine the two, and you have a solution that’s up to 35 per cent cheaper than ducted heating and other air conditioning systems. Radiant heating can be more expensive upfront but offers long-term savings with heating costs.
Most hydronic systems can be used for both heating or cooling new and existing homes. If the hydronic system’s temperature is set lower than the current temperature of a heated room, then it can take the edge off. This also assists your air conditioner and improves your home’s cooling efficiency.
A hydronic heating system requires a source of energy and a home’s electricity can be this source. Alternate options include using natural gas or LPG which can be more cost effective and help reduce the costs of quarterly bills.
