Hydronic heating is also referred to as radiant heating. It is a system whereby heated water passes through plastic tubing embedded in ceiling, walls or under the floors of a home. Hydronic heat is less expensive to use than traditional electric or gas heating systems. Since water conducts heat more easily than air, less energy is used to spread heat throughout the house. It is also more efficient as there is no air loss through ducts and no constant cycling of fans and furnaces.
