Hydronic heating is a superior form of heating that uses water instead of forced warm air to heat your home; making it ideal for asthma or allergy sufferers. Hydronic heating is recognised worldwide as one of the most energy-efficient and healthiest ways to bring warmth to your home, and has evolved over the years to become one of the most controllable and comfortable forms of heating, suitable for all types of properties.
The natural choice when it comes to heating
An efficient central boiler heats the water that is then circulated throughout the building using a network of pipes to an outlet; an outlet can be a radiator panel, in-floor trench convector, in slab floor coil or a combination of the available outlet options.
Hydronic heating provides a naturally silent radiated and/or convected heat throughout the home without the use of fans to heat the room and its contents, which gives a healthy and comfortable living environment.

Furthermore, the Hydronic gas boilers used by H2O Heating have a minimum efficiency rating of 86% up to an environmentally friendly 96.6% when incorporating a condensing hydronic heating boiler reducing gas consumption and running costs.
A new hydronic heating system costs significantly less to run than a ducted gas system, around 20% for homes with 2.7m ceilings; for homes with higher ceilings this saving can be increased to around 40 – 50%.
