You’re heating water that gets sent through piping channels through one’s home, either in the floor, walls, or ceiling.
I love getting upgrades! People say that the major smartphone manufacturers just re-release the same phone every single year, and I guess I can see that to some extent. However, often there are major changes and improvements added to newer models that were missing in previous ones. I make short hobby-focused Youtube videos and I haven’t needed my expensive DSLR camera in months after getting my newest smartphone with the four cameras on the back. The video quality I’m getting off this smartphone is beyond anything I could have expected from older technology only five years back. On one hand, I can’t even make use of all its features as the towers in my area don’t even support 5G connections yet. However, there was another sort of upgrade that I was interested in recently and I wanted to reach out to a heating and cooling company to get an idea for how much it may cost. I have read a lot about hydronic heating systems and the success that many are finding with them. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if the cost of maintenance and repairs is going to outweigh the benefits of boiler heating systems. You’re heating water that gets sent through piping channels through one’s home, either in the floor, walls, or ceiling. The water then becomes a source for radiant heat as it travels through these channels. My father was living in a basement for a while that had PVC pipes running the circumference of his apartment suite at the ceiling level. He said it was effective, but would have been better if the hot water was underneath the floor instead. Radiant heated flooring is amazing, but it might be the most expensive type of hydronic heating system.
