What are the Benefits of Hydronic Heating for Your Home?
Energy efficiency is talked about more and more these days. Aside from the benefit that reduced energy consumption can have on the planet, the immediate impact of a hydronic system is the money that you will save on your energy bill each month.
Hydronic heat is more efficient than traditional air heating for many reasons. For one, water is a better heat conductor than air. This means the warmth is more easily transferred throughout the home, so less energy is needed in heating the medium.
Due to the Importance of Reducing Energy Consumption, Government Programs Have Been Established to Offer Savings and Federal Tax Credits That Will Reduce the Upfront Cost of Radiant Heat Installation.
The extent of the energy saver tax credit you can claim depends on the type of hydronic heating you install. Action Heating & Cooling’s expert installers will also be able to update you on the tax incentives and answer any question regarding upgrading your Wisconsin home to an energy efficient design.
The single most important element that a heating system must give you and your family is comfort. Hydronic heating takes comfortable to a new level, as can be seen from the many benefits below:
Dust and allergens can be a concern for any Wisconsin family. They create sneezes and make it hard to breathe at times, especially for those with strong allergies or asthma. Unfortunately, traditional heating equipment pushes air around the home, which stirs up the allergens and dust, and carries it throughout the house. This is why filters are so necessary for force air systems, and why the infrequent changing of filters can have an impact on your family’s health.
Hydronic heat avoids this issue entirely, as it does not require the movement of any air to warm the home. This provides a healthier environment for you and your Wisconsin family home or office.
The versatility of installing hydronic heating allows homeowners to design a system around their needs. Whether your local fuel source is propane, natural gas, electricity, or oil you will be able to find a hydronic boiler that works for you.
Hydronic piping can be placed in the walls and easily routed around the home, unlike traditional systems that require extensive ductwork and return air systems with large chases, which eat into the usable square footage in the home.
