Hydronic Panel Heating
A typical hydronic heating system uses a boiler to heat water, which is then circulated through Rehau pipes and sent to panel radiators/convectors that are installed in each room. Heat is dispersed from the radiator directly into the air within a room.
A thermostat is used to control the temperature to the desired level of warmth. A hydronic system is economical. Temperatures can be set to lower levels to achieve the same level of warmth as s traditional heating system. Systems can be installed that allows owners to control the heat in each individual room.
Hydronic systems are composed of four parts.
- A boiler that heats water to the desired temperature and is thermostatically controlled;
- Rehau piping that carries the heated water to panel radiators and back to the boiler to be reheated;
- A pump that circulates water through the pipes;
- Panel radiators or convectors that transfer heat to the room.
Radiators have come a long way from old-fashioned models. Today’s steel radiator panels have high-gloss finishes that resist scratches and corrosion. They accommodate any décor and welded convector fins increase the effective heating surface, facilitating quicker warm up time for the home.
Towel rail radiators for the bathroom provide the luxury of warm towels whenever needed. The rails are stylish, available in high gloss white or chrome, and offered in straight or curved styles. The radiator towel rails are more than a fashion statement. They reduce the amount of dampness in bathrooms and extend the life of the room’s interior.
New technologies have made the installation of high-performance hydronic systems very quick. The use of modern materials makes the systems resistant to chemicals and they’re corrosion free. Hydronic systems are extremely durable and offer an environmentally-friendly heating option.
