How Hydronic Heating Works

The Worlds Most Efficient Heating System

The Worlds Most Efficient Heating System

Hydronic heating is beautiful in its simplicity. The hydronic system simply heats water and moves it through sealed pipes to radiators throughout the home. The sealed system can also be used to heat towel rails, floor slabs, even swimming pools, anywhere where it is needed.

Hydronic Heating heats water at its source via super energy efficient Gas Boilers. Once used the water is returned to be reheated via a recirculating system. This ‘heating’ system is separate to the homes domestic hot water supply. Panel radiators operate as ‘Heat Emitters’ in each room, pushing out natural radiant heat which spreads evenly. The radiators can be individually adjusted to provide ultimate comfort in each room, living areas can be warmer than bedrooms. Unlike air forced central heating systems there are no airborne particles, providing a totally dust free and allergen free form of heating making it ideal for medical conditions such as Asthma.

Modern hydronics technology enables heat to be delivered precisely when and where it is needed. Multiple system configurations are possible, each capable of meeting the exact comfort requirements of its owner. Some may be as simple as a tank-type water heater connected to a loop of flexible plastic tubing for warming a bathroom floor. Others may use two or more boilers operated in stages, releasing their heat through an assortment of heat emitters. The same boiler(s) may also provide the building’s domestic hot water. They might even heat the swimming pool, or melt snow as it falls on the driveway. Well-designed and properly installed hydronic systems provide unsurpassed comfort and fuel efficiency for the life of the building.

Hydronic systems that transfer the majority of their heat by thermal radiation reduce air temperature stratification, and thus reduce heat loss through ceilings. Comfort can often be maintained at lower air temperatures when a space is radiantly heated. This leads to further energy savings. Zoned hydronic systems provide the potential for unoccupied rooms to be kept at lower temperatures, which also lowers heat loss and reduces fuel consumption.

What about Hydrogen powered heating?

It's not yet possible to buy a Hydrogen powered boiler. However, as the future approaches, the BAXI Duo-Tec E condensing boiler is ‘Hydrogen Capable’ and can blend 20% hydrogen into the natural gas mix to substantially reduce carbon emissions. A hydrogen blend is when hydrogen is added to the current gas supply creating a mixture of natural gas and hydrogen. This blend can use existing infrastructure and pipelines, meaning no major upgrades or changes are required by homeowners, supporting flexibility across the grid. As well as being a clean liquid fuel for use in heating, when hydrogen is burned it produces only water and heat with no carbon emissions. Even when used as a combination of natural gas and hydrogen, carbon emissions are significantly reduced. Hydrogen is a highly efficient fuel and contains a lot of energy; just 1kg of hydrogen contains the same amount of energy as 2.8kg of gasoline. As the future draws nearer BAXI and HydroHeat are at the forefront of innvoation and are ready.
