Hydronics is a heating and cooling system that utilizes water or other liquids as the medium for transferring thermal energy. In hydronic systems, water is heated or cooled and then circulated through a network of pipes, radiators, or underfloor tubing to distribute heat or coolness throughout a building. Hydronics offer several advantages, including efficient heat transfer, zoning capabilities for individual room control, and reduced energy consumption. It is commonly used in residential, commercial, and industrial applications, providing comfortable and evenly distributed heating or cooling. Hydronic systems can be powered by various energy sources such as boilers, heat pumps, or solar thermal collectors, offering flexibility and versatility in meeting different heating and cooling needs. With its efficient and versatile nature, hydronics has become a popular choice for achieving optimal thermal comfort and energy efficiency in a wide range of buildings and spaces.
