Hydronic heating systems are rapidly gaining popularity among homeowners and business owners alike because of its unique advantages over traditional heating systems. However because they are relatively new, there are several misconceptions surrounding hydronic heating. At JNR Plumbing, we specialize in hydronic heating and water heater repair in Darien, CT, and would like to educate homeowners on the different myths about hydronic heating. 

1. Only the Floor is Heated by Hydronic Heating

Radiators and underfloor heating are two examples of hydronic heating systems, yet there is a common misconception that they only warm the floor. This could not be further from the truth. In fact, hydronic heating systems can comfortably and equally heat the temperature in your entire home. Be sure to keep your system in great working condition by scheduling regular water heater services.

2. Radiant Systems are Less Efficient

While it may seem that radiant heating systems are not that efficient, air-based devices are much less effective. They are susceptible to heat loss, air duct leakage, and extended running periods. In the long run, hydronic heating helps lower energy costs and maximizes heat dispersion.

3. Radiant Heating Takes Too Long to Heat Up

There was a time when this was true, but modern hydronic systems far surpassed their predecessors in both efficiency and speed. There have been several advances in heating system technology in recent decades. In the same way that a tankless water heater is able to heat water as needed, hydronic heating systems can do the same.

4. Hydronic Heating Cannot be Accurate

Others doubt that you can have precise control with hydronic heating. Hydronic heating systems provide you with a level of accuracy never before and may be utilized to heat only the rooms you need. If you find that your heating system can no longer deliver your desired temperature, schedule water heater replacement right away.
