Res

reasons to choose hydronic heating for your melbourne home

Hydronic heating is efficient, environmentally conscious, cheap to run, and great for allergy sufferers. Heating water with a boiler or heat pump, a hydronic system then circulates the water through sealed pipes which either attach to radiator panels and tubular radiators, or through pipes for underfloor heating. This radiant heat is highly efficient, and won’t create the dry, particle-laden air that can result from other forms of heating.

You will have the option to add on the additions you want to your hydronic heating. Melbourne homeowners may choose to attach a towel rail rather than a radiator panel in the bathroom, or to customise the system in other ways that better suit their particular needs.

The water in a hydronic system remains in continuous circulation, returning used water to the heating unit for an extremely efficient system that doesn’t waste a drop. To add to the efficiency, you can individually adjust each radiator panel, tubular radiator, towel rail, or flooring zone. Alternatively, you can control the temperature for your home via a central thermostat to create an even temperature throughout.

UNDERFLOOR HYDRONIC HEATING FOR MELBOURNE

While often thought of as a luxury addition, underfloor hydronic heating is actually a very practical addition to any new home. If you want to learn more about the various options for hydronic heating in Melbourne, then talk to the team at Arctic Melbourne about the relative merits of hydronic slab heating, in screed heating, heat diffusion plates, or under tile electric heating.

SLAB HEATING

Hydronic slab heating is the cheapest and most common method of under floor heating. Premium hydronic pipes are laid in carefully pre-planned patterns to suit your home, and zoned accordingly. Compared to the more expensive in screed option, the one downside to slab heating is that the heat is diffused through the entire slab. This means that some of the heat travels down away from your home, and more energy is required to warm your flooring to the desired temperature.

Slab Heating

IN SCREED HEATING

In screed heating is a different method of slab heating. It is installed after half of the slab has been laid, and includes a layer of insulation between the bottom of the slab and the hydronic heating pipes. This method provides less heat loss to the slab compared to traditional slab heating, and is more efficient to run. However, in screed heating is more expensive to install than traditional slab heating.

In Screed Heating

MINITEC

Minitec is another alternative to hydronic screed heating for the space conscious. It can be laid over new slab or existing flooring, and is covered with a thin screed. The Minitec system uses unique 9.9 x 1.1mm piping and increases the floor height of only 15mm.

HEAT DIFFUSION PLATES

Heat diffusion plates are laid between floor joists, and provide a great option for underfloor heating when slabs are not an option. Hydronic heat plates can also be used to provide underfloor heating for two storey homes.

Hydronic pipes are laid in grooves built into the heat plates, and the plates are laid over the floor joists. Heat radiates from the hydronic pipes and is diffused via the heat plates to provide even heat distribution.

Heat Diffusion Plates

ELECTRIC UNDER TILE

If a hydronic system is not suitable for your home but you are still looking for the luxury of a warm floor, then electric under tile heating might be for you. This is also a great option for renovations as only the floor surface needs to be replaced to facilitate installation. The electric heating element is placed directly over the subfloor and your tiles are simply laid over the top.

Under tile heating is best suited for small areas such as bathrooms and ensuites.

RADIATOR PANELS

WHICH RADIATOR PANELS ARE BEST FOR HYDRONIC HEATING IN MELBOURNE?

We install DeLonghi radiator panels because of the company’s longstanding reputation for quality, and generous 25 year warranty. DeLonghi steel radiator panels are highly efficient, providing excellent heat diffusion for your hydronic heating. Melbourne homeowners may also choose to have vintage style cast iron radiators, or luxury Italian designer panels fitted at custom request.

By powder coating the radiator panels to suit their chosen decor, even standard panels can become a stylish addition to the modern home.

TOWEL RAILS TO THE HYDRONIC HEATING

ATTACHING TOWEL RAILS TO THE HYDRONIC HEATING IN YOUR MELBOURNE HOME

In a bathroom, ensuite, or even the laundry, you may choose to replace the standard radiator panel with a hydronically heated towel rail. Like any other heated towel rail, it will keep your towels (or your clothes) dry and toasty warm, and because it is connected to the hydronic heating, Melbourne homeowners can enjoy a well-heated bathroom year round.

Combining your bathroom’s towel rail with a source of heat is a great space saving measure. You can even choose the size and horizontal or vertical ladder towel rail design that will best suit your space. Choose from DeLonghi’s flat or curved towel rail designs, in sleek chrome, stylish black, or modern white finishes.

Heating towels and bathrooms with a hydronic heating system is also an excellent way to prevent dampness and mould for a healthier home environment.

THE BEST BOILERS & HEAT PUMPS FOR HYDRONIC HEATING SYSTEMS IN MELBOURNE

You can talk to the Arctic Melbourne team about the best way to power your hydronic heating. Melbourne homeowners may choose from:

  • Natural Gas Boilers
  • LPG or Diesel Boilers
  • Wood Fired Boilers
  • Electric Heat Pumps

The heating method you use will depend on your budget and future usage requirements. Natural gas boilers are popular because they are affordable to install and to run. However, there are also quality alternatives available in either wood pellet boilers or electric heat pumps if you decide gas is not the right option for you. Whichever heating method you choose, you will find only the best brands available from Arctic Melbourne, including Immergas, Galletti, and Daikin.
