BENEFITS OF HOT WATER HEAT
- 1. Comfort
Almost all homes have hot and cold spots, during the chilly winter season. A home with hot water heat has multiple thermostats that each control a zone valve. These zone valves direct the heat to different rooms or “zones” of a home. So, if one person wants their bedroom at 67 degrees, someone else wants 70 degrees and a third person wants the basement at 74 degrees, all three can relax in a different temperature, that is just right for their comfort.
- 2. Silent operation
Unlike a noisy gas forced air furnace with blower fans, hot water heat provides quiet, peaceful, heating throughout your home.
- 3. Energy efficiency
Hot water heat has several ways that make it more efficient that other heating options. Two of the biggest reasons are …
- A) When heat is dispensed at or under the floor level, you feel more comfortable. Hydronic heat has a way of stacking the heat from the floor upwards, verses gas forced air that blows warm air up into a room, causing the warmth to stack from the ceiling downwards. You are usually heating less of the rooms volume with hot water heat.
- B) The Zoning feature of Hot Water Heat, (mentioned above) allows you to turn the temperature down, in unused areas of the home, so that you are only heating occupied areas of your home.
