Domestic Hot Water
“Combi” boilers supply domestic hot water throughout your home by pumping the hot water coming from the boiler into a flat plate heat exchanger that is mounted inside the boiler cabinet. Domestic water passes on one side of the plates and the hot boiler water on the other side. Heat passes through the plates and therefore warms the domestic water. Compact, safe and efficient heat transfer for an endless supply of hot water!
A wall mounted hydronic radiator operates quietly with consistent heating by passing warm water through its piping. These allow for the freedom to install the rooms and locations in rooms where you need supplemental heat the most at minimal installation costs. Individual thermostats can operate each radiator if desired so you can customize each space’s temperature. In some older homes, pre-existing cast iron radiators can be saved and used in an upgraded hydronic heating system.
Similar to radiant heat, this system uses hot water heated by a boiler to heat a space. However, the water is passed through “fintube” units mounted along walls. The fins increase the surface area of heat dissipation making the units efficient. The baseboard units are placed around a room and under windows, the warm air rises from the finned tubes and evenly heats the room. Newer baseboard designs output much more heat per section and are sleek, taking up minimal wall space.
In Floor Radiant Tubing
Heated water from the boiler is circulated through tubes that are closely spaced under your home’s flooring. Your floor warms to an even temperature across the entire room, eliminating hot and cold spots as well as system drafts. Warmth naturally rises through the floor to your feet and up along your body. The heat felt from this type of system has been compared to being wrapped in warmth rather than having it blown onto you like what happens with typical furnace systems.
