Solar Hydronics

How does hydronic heating & cooling work?

A  hydronic heating and cooling system works by circulating water through underfloor pipes, radiators or fan coils, distributing heat around the room. The water in the pipes is connected to a central manifold and the hot or cold water can be maintained by solar heat, heat pump or wetback system.

Solar Hydronic Heating

Hydronic Heating has several advantages over ducted heating: Using the suns energy to heat up internal spaces is a clever and cheap means of maintaining comfortable internal temperatures without the associated energy costs.

Storing the suns radiant energy in thermally insulated hot water tanks, and piping the hot water via a heat exchange mechanism to underfloor heating and radiators, is a sustainable and pleasant way to heat your home.
