What to do when your hydronic heater breaks

If you live in the North, it is highly suggested to do yourself a favor and invest in a hydronic heating system for your home.

Hydronic heating relies on the use of water to heat the flooring surfaces and radiate heat into the air of the room it is in.

The heating system is pretty complex and can be very expensive to install, but the energy savings you get from using the system are pretty significant in comparison to a central heater. It can be a bit of a pain to deal with a repair if something in your hydronic heating system breaks though. For example, if a heating pipe bursts underneath the floor, you only have a certain amount of time to get going on the repair before water damage begins to take place. I recommend having your heating technician’s number on speed dial, and also having an emergency heating company’s number on hand in case your regular person is unavailable. One time I had something break and my regular guy was out of town. I had to call an emergency company instead. It costs me an arm and a leg, but it would have cost me way more if I had put off the issue and water damage began to set in. Sometimes you have to take risks and choose the better option even if it’s not the best option. We all have to lose a little in order to gain something in return. That’s a lesson that I am learning more and more throughout my life in a variety of ways. Growth is all around us and within us.
