Hydronic Radiator Panels


Panel heating is a hydronic heating system that incorporates radiator panels in each room of your home. It is the preferred heating method for those that desire the most comfortable, efficient and controllable home heating method. Hydronic heating systems do not blow air and dust around and are silent. They are efficient as they use energy to heat water which is a great conductor of heat energy. Each panel can be controlled ensuring every room is comfortable.

What is Panel Heating?

Panel Heating is a type of hydronic heating system where water is heated to 70°C and pumped through a closed pipe circuit through a home. Each room in the home then has a radiator panel hung on the wall and connected to the pipe. The hot water heats the steel panel radiator which heats the room. Around 85% of the heat comes from radiant heat and 15% through convection. Modern hydronic radiators are designed to be both elegant and efficient. Steel radiator panels are manufactured with convector fins, welded directly to the waterways, increasing the effective heated surface area and thus giving a dramatic increase in the warm up speed and the general efficiency of the heating system.

Can they be installed in existing homes?

Radiator panels are a wonderful addition to any home – new or existing. They are widely used as the stand alone home heating method due to their effectiveness, comfort and efficiency. If you have an existing home we can come out and conduct a site visit to ensure that we can achieve your desired heating solution. Simply call us to book and appointment. When we come out our main concern is to be able to gain access to install the pipe work. This is usually done but crawling under the house when on stumps or through the ceiling and walls. If you are considering hydronic heating but in doubt of whether we can access appropriate installation points then please give us a call.

For existing homes radiator panels are the perfect solution. Installation takes approximately 2 days in most cases, less for smaller homes.
