The term hydronic heating encompasses any type of heating system for a facility that uses the circulation of hot water to send heat into a space. The most common type of hydronic heating is a boiler system, although this is not the only way to heat and circulate water to terminal points.
Although people commonly think of radiators as the method hydronic heaters use to distribute heat, these are rare today—especially for commercial systems. Baseboard heaters are more common, and the preferred method for the installation of new commercial heating in Toronto, ON is with in-floor heating. For new commercial construction, we often recommend our clients consider hydronic floor heating, which is one of the best methods available for providing heat to a large area with reduced energy consumption. Hydronic heating is suitable for numerous types of businesses and facilities, whether to provide comfort for people inside, facilitate process, and/or protect equipment and product.
