    Default Hydronic Heating

    Just wondering if any Hubbers have experience with hydronic heaters?

    We are looking to build a new house next year and are thinking of installing a hydronic heater. We live in a cool climate area (cold enough for snow in winter and plenty of minus 5 or worse nights).

    Our builder recommended installing one in our slab when we build. I like the idea of the whole house being warmed from the floor up rather than trying to heat rooms constantly and pushing hot air down like a conventional ducted heating system.

    Pros, cons or any experiences at all would be great to hear!

    My sister put it in their house last year. They’re in an old Edwardian style house with solid brick internal walls and really high ceilings. By all accounts it seems to be working well for them and whenever I go there the house is a nice temperature. I don’t know much more about them other than the fact that my sister is very happy with it (we all live in Victoria, can get pretty cold).

    Thank you for that insight @Hollywood I’m glad it’s working well for your sister and I hope that it will be a good heating solution for us
