My neighbor has been telling myself and others about a heating program that I have never seen before! Apparently hydronic furnaces are all the modern rage plus a much better alternative to central oil furnaces for many reasons.
I asked her to explain to myself and others how hydronic oil furnaces work.
She said that the first step is that the program needs hot water to produce electricity, so the boiler uses a process called conduction to heat the water in the reservoir. Then, the hot water runs through a piping program that is installed underneath the floor. The hot water produces heat within the flooring itself plus then the heat from the floor radiates into the room. She had hydronic heating installed in her beach cabin a few weeks ago so she let myself and others come over so I could experience it. If you would have told myself and others a month ago that heat from flooring could warm up a room without burning my feet, I would’ve called you crazy. However, it certainly works! I’m pretty sure I’m going to look into this as an choice for my home, but I don’t think if it’s too late for my house. I live in a small historic bungalow plus it doesn’t seem appreciate this program would be the best fit for it. I appreciate my house, however because the history of it needs to be preserved, I really have a lot of restrictions on what I can plus can’t do with it. I don’t suppose my next cabin will be so historic so that I can have more freedom with it.
