When we think of heating, the first thing that usually comes to mind is a furnace or central heating. However, hydronic heating is more efficient and easier on the environment. This system circulates warm water through a network of pipes under the floor. At JNR Plumbing, we offer hydronic heating and water heater repair in Norwalk, CT, at competitive prices. We explain more about hydronic heating below:

How it Works

Hydronic heating is one of the most popular types of heating systems because it uses water to heat a room. The system uses a pump to send hot water through the system and a thermostat to control the temperature. When you turn on your hydronic heating system, the pump starts and sends water through the piping to your radiators. This causes the water to heat up until it reaches your desired temperature. You can control the temperature by adjusting the thermostat, just like a tankless water heater, or change the temperature in specific areas of your home.

How to Keep the Heating System From Clogging

  • Check for obstructions regularly – Clear any debris from around the heat exchanger and air handler. If an object blocks airflow, this will prevent heat from being transferred from the furnace or heat pump to the room. When this happens, schedule prompt heating and water heater services.
  • Clean out the condensate collector frequently – This collects water condensed on the evaporator coil during cooling and sends it to a disposal unit.
  • Maintain a regular schedule of maintenance checks – After hydronic heating or water heater installation, have your plumber check the system regularly for signs of problems and make any necessary repairs before they become too costly or difficult to repair.

Knowing the basics of a hydronic heating system is essential before calling on a professional for installation.
