What is it?
Hydronic heating involves pumping heated water through piping laid under the floor, along baseboard heaters, or through radiators. This produces a radiant heat at an even temperature, not affected by air movement.
Very efficient gas boilers that generally have an energy rating of 95% are typically used to heat the water. Solar power can also be used for even greater savings and less impact on the environment.
A single hydronic heating system can also be used to heat existing wall-mounted panel radiators and even fixtures and accessories such as bathroom towel rails. It can hook up to a domestic hot water tank to supply hot water to the household all year long. It can even be used for swimming pool heating.

In terms of which is efficient through to the most efficient we will work with you on the following options:
- Standard Gas Boiler

- Keeping noise levels to a minimum is a key part of the comfort of your home
- Provides consistent ambient temperature, no cold spots, no draughts. Warm floors mean warm feet, perfect for winter mornings.
- Great for allergy and asthma sufferers. As a radiant heat there’s no dust stirred up and it doesn’t dry the air out.
- It’s virtually invisible under the floor. Alternative radiator panel designs can compliment the style of the home with minimal space required.
Traditional heating systems are designed with a forced airflow system, pushing air throughout indoor spaces, which can be noisy during operation. This action disturbs dust and circulates potential allergens in the air. This conventional means of heating may also result in uneven heat distribution.
With innovative hydronic underfloor heating from iEnergi, the natural laws of convection of warm air is put to work—from the floor, heat rises up and fills the atmosphere. Radiant heat is also distributed well in all areas of the home.
A hydronic heat pump system may require a higher initial investment, but it is more cost efficient in the long run because of lower operating costs and all the applications for which it can be used. Heat pumps also boast of an average life expectancy of 15 years—with manufacturers and contractors offering up to 5 years warranty—thus assuring better return on investment and reliable operation.
