Going green is starting to become the anthem for the decade ahead. There is not a major manufacturer in this country that has not considered adding greener products to their lines. You will find the phrase "green" in everything from automobiles, to product packaging, and of course home efficiency products, Hydronic heating is another product that is assisting homeowners to reduce their carbon foot print.

Hydronic heating is a huge step towards efficient home heating. Properly heating a home can make or break the budget. In some places in the North East heating bills can average $400 per month. Installing hydronic heating reduces the amount of energy that is required to heat a home with traditional heating methods. This is in part due to the length of time water is able to hold the heat and disperse it throughout the home. An additional benefit is that there is no need to install and run a separate heating system. The water is heated from the same boiler as the rest of the house. Once the water is heated it is dispersed through the house via durable tubing located within the walls, ceilings, and under floor boards. Additional savings can be earned by selecting a high efficiency water pump to push the heated water through the system.

On newer models hydronic heating can be vented through the wall, and some have modulated burners. These systems are known to be 98% efficient. Due to this level of efficiency these models have achieved an ENERGYSTAR® rating that qualifies for a federal tax credit of 30% of the cost and installation up to a total credit of $1,500. Check with your local state agencies and utility companies for additional rebates on ENERGYSTAR® rated upgrades.

Other wanted benefits that come with installing hydronic heating systems is the ability to heat specific areas within the home while not wasting money on heating areas that are not used as much. Hydronic heating also prevents hot and cold areas within the home. All of these benefits are a clear reason to inquire about hydronic heating systems.
