Hydronic Radiator Heating

A hydronic radiator heating system simply heats water in a boiler and moves it through sealed pipes to radiators throughout the home.
Hydronic radiators operate as heat emitters in each room, pushing out natural radiant heat which spreads evenly. The radiators can be individually adjusted using a thermostat to provide different levels of heating in different areas of the house.
Installing the boiler, pipes and radiators in a new build is relatively straight forward. For current builds, radiators can be retrofitted as long as there is access to the sub floor. Pipework is threaded through the subfloor to the radiator location, with some patching up of the floor surface needed where the pipes are fed into the radiators.

All these systems are best serviced by a natural gas powered boiler which is efficient, clean, competitive and quiet. However alternative sources of heating such as wood or pellet fired, solar or heat pumps can also be used.

Benefits of a hydronic radiator system

  • Radiate a warm, even heat that is not dry.
  • Do not recirculate stale air making them ideal for those with medical conditions such as asthma.
  • Easy to switch certain radiators off and to heat only the necessary rooms.
  • Easy to isolate an individual radiator for repair or replacement.
  • Good for placing towels, wet clothes on etc.
  • Modern radiators can be used as a design feature within a room.
  • Quiet.
Once your hydronic heating system is installed it is important to have it cleaned and flushed regularly. Australian Hydronic Heating and Cooling use top of the range technology to flush the radiators and pipes to ensure the most efficient operation of your heating system.

Even for those living in Sydney and surrounding areas, hydronic radiator systems can be the perfect solution for heating a home. Australian Hydronic Heating and Cooling can help you to decide if this is the right system for you based on your individual circumstances and provide a guide for installation costs and running costs.

Cast iron hydronic radiator
If the modern look is not for you or don’t suit your home, then cast iron radiators will give you the more traditional look. These radiators add great character to the home and feature 4 or 6 columns with optional footed end sections. They are supplied undercoated in white and ready for the finishing coat in a colour of your choice.

For rooms with large windows, conservatories or offices trench heating is a great option. These Mini Canals are fitted into the floor next to a window or opening. They have an energy saving, ultra fast Low-H2O element which is hidden below a grill. The grill cover can be tailored to match the flooring.  

The Mini Canal ensures a warm air curtain: the cold air layer from the glass and the cooler return air on the floor are drawn in, heated and mixed with the warmer upper air so a balanced and even comfort temperature is achieved.

It is suitable for renovation objects and new projects alike.
