How hydronic heating systems save money, energy and space!
Woodbridge GTA ClimateCare has a little secret. We specialize in state-of-the-art hydronic heating systems and hydronic radiant floor heating GTA residents love.
Our hydronic heating system consists of a Rinnai tankless water heater connected to a Rinnai or RedZone hydronic furnace. With a thermal efficiency of up to 97%, this matched combo offers a real “green” solution that can dramatically lower home heating costs.
How does the hydronic heating system work?
While using the “on demand” tankless hot water heater to produce domestic hot water, the combo set-up allows the Rinnai tankless to deliver hot water through the heating coil inside the hydronic furnace providing comfortable home heating. The hydronic furnace uses an ultra-high efficiency ECM fan to gently distribute this heat throughout the home.
In retrofit situations, existing duct work can be used. With new home construction, 3″ high velocity mini-ducts fit inside standard walls, eliminating the need for extra bulkheads.
How radiant floor warming works
Radiant floor warming quietly and continuously warms the room by constantly circulating warm water through pipes located beneath the floor. By warming the entire floor, it efficiently raises the temperature of everything in the room. You can actually lower your thermostat setting while enjoying the same level of comfort and reducing your heating bills by up to 30%.
How is radiant floor warming installed?
“Wet” installations are most common in new homes and consist of pouring concrete over PEX pipes installed in the floor space. When the system is operating, the warm water circulates through the pipes and distributes it evenly throughout the floor and to everything in the room.
A “dry” installation is commonly used when a poured floor just isn’t practical. In this case, PEX pipes are placed in the joist space or underneath a suspended wood floor. Warm water circulates through the pipes and warms the floor above it. In the absence of the concrete used in the “wet” installation method above, heat transfer plates may be used with PEX pipes to help distribute heat evenly.
Can we help you with that?
Of course we can! The friendly and expert technicians at Woodbridge GTA ClimateCare loves to talk about hydronic heating systems, including the hydronic radiant floor heating GTA residents are raving about.
