Heating and Cooling Options

Radiant Floor Heating

Types

  • Hydronic (water-conducted Heat)

  • Air

  • Electric

Why Use Hydronic?

  • No energy lost through heat ducts

  • Whole room is heated evenly, compared to a forced air system or a standing radiator

  • Significant energy savings (15-20% less fuel used than in a forced air system)

  • Cleaner, fresher air

  • Boiler can be powered by natural gas, electricity, or geothermal energy

  • Water has a far superior heat retaining capacity, compared to air

  • Can utilize a dual system in which the same boiler heats both the water for household use and water for the heating system
