Frequently Asked Questions

Why is hydronic or hot water heat better than hot air heat?
Doesn't the tubing that runs under or in a floor or wall damage the structure?
Can I use a hot water heater as my heat source?
Can I install radiant heat in a house with baseboard?




Why is hydronic or hot water heat better than hot air heat?
It is better because with hot water heat we have more control over the distribution of heat or energy to a space. There are a wide variety of
systems and equipment that can be used to heat a space from radiators to baseboard to fans to the floor or wall of the room itself.

Doesn't the tubing that runs under or in a floor or wall damage the structure?
No, not if the system is designed correctly, this is because a properly designed system takes into account the space being heated, the materials and the goal is not to heat floor surface for example past 82 degrees f.

Can I use a hot water heater as my heat source?
Yes, but... a hot water heater is designed to heat potable water. It heats the water but there is not the control nor the efficiency provided by a boiler for heating purposes.

Can I install radiant heat in a house with baseboard?
Yes, most systems can be retrofitted, there are a wide variety of products that can be adapted too many different construction methods. Radiant can be retrofitted into a small bathroom or an entire house. The northeast has many opportunities for retrofitting.
