Boilers, Radiators and Hydronic Systems

Hydronic heating is gaining in popularity in North America as homeowners realize how comfortable and cost efficient it can be.

This is the most comfortable, versatile, cost effective and economical heating option available.

How it works

A gas or oil boiler heats water, this water is then circulated throughout your home using your choice of underfloor tubing, slim baseboard radiators, or decorative wall panels that deliver the heat evenly to all rooms in your home. The water then returns itself to the boiler to be reheated and then recirculate. Water has a natural way of releasing heat gradually thus this creates a very comfortable living environment where heat distribution is even and controlled.

Using a hydronic system can reduce fuel consumption by up to 40%. This is possible because the water only loses a fraction of its heat as it travels throughout your home, and thus requires less fuel to reheat it to circulation temperature. Today convenient technology allows for weather responsive controls, computer sensors and individual room thermostats which ensure that your system operates efficiently and provides you with warmth and comfort unmatched by conventional furnaces.
