Hydronic Heating & Boiler Repair


Safely heat your home through the use of a hydronic heating system such as a radiator, underfloor radiant loops, or baseboard heating units. These systems transfer heat to your home by circulating hot water through fins or tubing loops, transferring the heat from the hot liquid to the immediate areas surrounding the units, providing you an economical & flexible method to provide heating comfort to targeted living areas and heating zones of your home or business.

Hydronic units distribute heat evenly without creating drafts or cold spots associated with forced-air type delivery. They save space by doing away with needed bulky ductwork that traditional furnaces require, and they cut way down on the spread of dust particles and allergens.

Hydronic heat systems will transfer heat via sealed systems. Running quieter than furnaces as noise is reduced since no blowers or large electric motors are needed as they are with forced air systems. Hydronic systems are quiet, energy efficient heating solutions that keep your home’s or business's environment clean & healthy.

Hydronic Heating Process In a Nutshell

First, a boiler heats the liquid. The liquid is typically water, but some units can use other liquids such as an antifreeze hybrid.

The thermostat directs a central plumbing manifold to manage the flow of heated liquid to where it’s needed. A pump keeps the liquid in circulation by pushing it through the system. The tubing carries the heated liquid payload out to the radiator, baseboard heaters or underfloor heating elements, and, of course, directs the cooled liquid back to the boiler to repeat the process all over again.


You have several different options when choosing the main part of your hydronic system; the boiler.

  • Tankless Hydronic Heaters - Provide a continuous even supply of hot water while saving space typically used by traditional large water tanks.
  • Solar Water Heater - Typically used in tandem with a traditional boiler to increase load & efficiency.
  • Combined Hot Water & Hydronic Boilers - Can be designed for tankless & hot water tanks as well.
