Hydronic Heat is a method of heating that uses hot water or steam instead of air. With hydronic heat, you get two types of heat delivery: radiant heat and convected heat. Radiant heat warms you directly, just like the sun's rays. Convected heat is carried by warm air circulating in a room.

Hydronic heat lets you choose from several different devices that use these two heating processes. Hot water from a gas powered boiler can be piped to radiant tubing hidden in the floor, to slim baseboard radiators, or to stand-alone radiators. Hot water can also be circulated through a coil in your central air-conditioning unit to heat other living spaces with warm air. Plus, hydronic heating produces more hot water for cooking, washing, hot tubs, swimming pools, and even radiant sidewalks and driveways to melt ice and snow.

True Comfort - Imagine your beautiful floors now warm and cozy to the touch.

Works Everywhere - Under tile, marble, wood, carpet and concrete floors. Radiant Walls and Radiant Ceilings can also create a cozy, efficient environment.

Our Wirsbo radiant floors circulate warm water through PEX tubing embedded in the floor of your home. The heat radiates up through the floor, warming the people, furnishings and air in the room. The warmth stays down around where the people are, not up at the ceiling or lost to the outdoors every time a door or window is opened. It's a comfortable, even heat where cold spots and drafts are eliminated. Boiler sizing is performed by a compuetrized on-site heat loss calculation. Providing you with the most energy efficient zoned hydronic system for your home or business.
