WHAT IS HYDRONICS?

Hydronics, in simple terms, refers to a central heating system that utilizes hot water to heat your residential or commercial location. It is the most comfortable, versatile, economical and effective heating option available.

These systems are used extensively in Europe where the high cost and limited availability of fuel require owners to seek the most economical and effective heating options.

The installation of hydronic heating systems is increasing dramatically in North America, as owners here realize how comfortable and cost-efficient they can be.

HOW IT WORKS

An efficient gas boiler is used to heat water, which is an excellent conductor of heat. The heated water is circulated throughout the home or building using your choice of underfloor tubing, slim baseboard radiators, or decorative wall panels that deliver the heat evenly to each room in your home.

The water is then returned to the boiler to be re-heated and re-circulated. Because of its physical properties, water releases heat gradually when passed through the radiator in each room. This creates a very comfortable environment where heat distribution is even and controllable, as there are no fans blowing high volumes of air creating hot and cold spots.

The water loses only a fraction of its warmth as it travels throughout your home, and requires less fuel to reheat it to circulation temperature. With a hydronic system you’ll reduce your fuel consumption by up to 40 per cent.

Weather responsive controls, computer sensors and individual room thermostats ensure that your system operates efficiently and provides you with warmth and comfort unmatched by conventional furnaces.

“Everyone At Postma is very professional and offers wonderful and prompt service. They have helped us out of two jams one a plumbing emergency and today when our furnace in a rental unit broke and the temperature dropped to 49 degrees they came out right away and got us up and running… I can’t thank them enough and will turn to them again the next time we need something…”

“Had some leaking/flooding from an unknown source, Postma was able to schedule a plumber to come out the same day. Even though the plumber, Mark, was running behind with his other emergency calls after the cold snap he fit us in at the end of his day. Mark was kind, thorough and accurate in diagnosing the issue. Would definitely recommend Mark and Postma to anyone with a plumbing issue.”
