Hydronic Boilers

Hydronic heating and cooling systems utilize boilers as their primary source of heat. These boilers receive fuel from combustible sources such as natural gas, oil, or propane and convert the energy of the fuel into heat. This heat transfers to water which is then pumped through pipes around a house or building, heating radiators, underflooring, air handlers or fan coils. Our boilers are typically the heart of a hydronic system and come in many varieties for both residential and commercial applications.


Furnaces are essential components of hydronic heating systems. They provide the hot water necessary to transfer the heat from its source to the cooling system or radiators in your home or business. Furnaces can be powered by natural gas, electricity, oil, or other fuels. In more extreme climates outside of BC, hydro air furnace systems utilize air handlers instead of water radiators, drawing air through a ductwork circuit system of hot water vapor. Depending upon where you are located, we will recommend the right hydronic furnace system for you.

Hydronic Heating

Hot water systems, or hydronic heating, is one of our most popular methods of home climate control that uses hot water to transfer heat from one point to another. Advantages of hydronic heating include constant air temperature throughout the home, energy savings due to increased efficiency, reduced noise pollution since there are no noisy fans or blowers, high levels of humidity control and improved air quality since no dust or other contaminants are circulating through this type of system.

  • Back Flow Preventers – these are designed to protect the system against contaminants that could backflow into it.
  • Pressure Reducing Valves – these are designed to lower the pressure of incoming water to a safe and consistent level, regulate pressure flow or isolate equipment from the main pump in order to protect it from damage.
  • Hydronic Pumps – these are driven by electricity and used to transfer hot or cold liquid through your pipes to create either comfortable thermal control of a room’s temperature or a refreshing air conditioning system.

Frequently Asked Questions about Hydronic systems

What is a hydronic heating or cooling system?

A hydronic heating system is a type of heating system that uses water to distribute heat. This type of system is popular in residential and commercial buildings. The hydronic heating system works by using water as a heat carrier, which is then distributed through pipes to radiators or baseboard units. These systems can be used in both hot and cold climates and are more efficient than forced-air heating systems.

How does a hydronic heating system work?

Hydronic heating systems are a type of heating system that works by circulating heated water. This heat is transferred to the air, which is then circulated throughout the house by ducts, ideal for homes and businesses in British Columbia where we live.

In order for this process to work, it needs a boiler and an air handler to circulate air throughout the ducts. The boiler heats up water until it becomes steam, and sends it through pipes that run through the walls of your home or business. The hot water flows through these pipes and into a radiator where it cools down and then travels back to the boiler again. In this way, hot water circulates throughout your home in order for you to enjoy consistent warmth during our famously cold westcoast months.
