Hydronic Heating / Cooling
Hydronics is the use of a liquid heat-transfer medium in heating and cooling systems. The working fluid is typically water, glycol, or mineral oil. Some of the oldest and most common examples are steam and hot-water radiators. Historically, in large-scale commercial buildings such as high-rise and campus facilities, a hydronic system may include both a chilled and a heated water loop, to provide for both heating and air conditioning. Chillers and cooling towers are used either separately or together as means to provide water cooling, while boilers heat water. A recent innovation is the chiller boiler system, which provides an efficient form of HVAC for homes and smaller commercial spaces.
Many older homes in the Greater Toronto Area rely on the hydronic system for heating. If you can see radiators in your home, then this is how you’re getting your heat. While it’s not always the most efficient and cost-effective way to get heat, it can be very costly to convert to natural gas. To help serve the customers for whom converting doesn’t make financial sense, we offer a full range of sales and services for our for those who want to stick with their boilers.
