WHICH HYDRONIC SYSTEM?
For those building a new home with a solid concrete floor, you have the option of under-floor and/or radiators. When retro-fitting, under floor is not really a viable option so you will be looking at radiators.
Both systems offer exceptional comfort but which system is best?
The answer is simple: the system which most suits your home and your lifestyle,
- Both systems will cost similar amounts to have installed and both provide very similar heat characteristics to your home, though under floor is warm on your feet.
- Under floor costs less to run per hour, but more over a full winter period than radiators. This is because under floor systems take a long time to heat up and are therefore more efficient when run 24/7 throughout the heating season, albeit with the temperature reduced up to 4 degrees at night or while you’re at work. Radiators, on the other hand, are very quick to respond and therefore can be set to run only when you want the heat.
- With the typical New Zealand-designed floor slab there are some additional design factors that must be applied to ensure the system control is adequate. Good design is critical, and we can help with detailed advice and design assistance.
- Radiator systems can sometimes be difficult to place in open plan properties particularly those with large areas of glazing.
- Split systems, part under floor and part radiators, often provide the best solution in two storey homes and homes with large areas of open plan living. A badly designed system will cost more to run and result in an ineffective system.
