In hydronic floor heating, the plastic pipes are in the house’s cement slab or in open flooring because that lets heat warm the entire floor evenly. This heating sometimes works in concert with a hydronic baseboard heater 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, this 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 this type of 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 systems 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.
