How does hydronic heating work?
A heat source, eg Air Source heat pump, gas or woodfired boiler heats water. This hot water is then pumped via a pipe circuit (loop) to radiators/panels or underfloor pipework and back to boiler to be heated again when necessary. Some systems require a buffer tank, particularly air source pump and wood fired systems, this smooths out the operation of the system and reduces air in the system.
The radiator/panel or underfloor heating coil zones can be temperature controlled using manual or automatic thermostats to give the ultimate in comfort in each room/zone.
