We’ve already covered the benefits of hydronic heating above, but we know that some of our customers are also considering ducted heating systems. The reality is, ducted heating systems force hot air into a room, which rises quickly to the ceiling where it pools. Not only will you find that most of the heat has risen, there is also an uneven distribution of heat within the room as a room will be warmer at the source of distribution as seen in the diagram below.
Ducted heating systems are also renowned for spreading dust and other allergens throughout the room when heating the room. Ducted heating is also considerably noisier than a hydronic heating system.
