In hydronic floor heating, the plastic pipes are in the house’s cement slab or in open flooring. That lets heat warm the entire floor evenly. Hydronic floor heating sometimes works in concert with a hydronic baseboard heater and/or radiators to provide additional heat.
Closed loop hydronic heating is exceptionally energy efficient and holds down utility bills. It also allows for sensitive and flexible temperature control. In fact, hydronic radiant floor heating makes chilly tile floors a thing of the past, in the bathroom or the kitchen and at any time of the day or night.
Installing Hydronic Heating Systems
In times past, the only way to have hydronic heating was to install it in the cement slab of the house. Times have changed, however, and modern advances have provided new options for homeowners. Various types of hydronic system can go under hardwood floors, vinyl floors, laminates, or even carpeting. In other words, pretty much any floor covering your home is likely to have.
