Can Hydronic Systems Also be Used For Cooling?

When you think about hydronic systems, you automatically think about the heating the system can provide, even though this isn’t all it has to offer. A hydronic system can provide both heating and cooling to a building in the same way – by circulating liquid water through pipes in flooring or ceilings as well as converters along the wall. If you were ever on the fence about installing the system in your home as you thought you’d only be able to use it for a short period of the year, you’ll be happy to know that you can use in summer and winter.

With a hydronic cooling system in your indoor rooms, you can achieve the desired cooling you’d like by ensuring that the water temperature in the system is degrees below the room’s temperature. This method of cooling is more efficient than conventional cooling systems as those often use more energy and produce uneven results. Whether you’re installing the system for heating or cooling the process is easy, and you’ll soon find yourself enjoying a controlled climate in your home.

Not only will you enjoy a cooler environment, but you’ll also benefit from an energy effective measure that eliminates humidity, dust and airborne allergens, creating better air quality for you and your family.

Here are a few more features of hydronic cooling that you might not have been aware of:

  • It can heat or cool surfaces in rooms instead of the air itself. Thanks to this the room won’t have cold or hot spots as the temperature is evenly distributed.
  • Because it’s a system that doesn’t make much noise and doesn’t noise stop, start or pause, it’s constantly working to cool your home and purify its air while you watch TV, sleep or do anything else.

Even though hydronic systems have made a name of their own mainly for heating purposes, you can now see that you’re able to provide value all year round. To ensure that your system works as it should make sure that you consult with a licenced expert before choosing a system for installation.
