How Hydronics Works
Hydronics refers to temperature control through the use of water. In hydronic heating & cooling systems, boilers or chillers are used to heat or cool water. Then the water is transferred through a series of pipes to heat exchangers where heat is transferred from the water to the air for heating, or from the air to the water for cooling. The use of hydronics is also popular in commercial and industrial HVAC applications for heating or cooling large buildings and equipment.
Advantages of Hydronics
There are many advantages to hydronic heating and cooling systems. For instance, they provide quiet and gentle heating. Also, the water can be put to other uses such as providing hot potable water, heating a swimming pool or spa, or even melt ice and snow from driveways.
