Stay Safe and Warm Through Harsh Winters

As outdoor activities and events come to an unfortunate halt in the brutal winter months in Canada, it’s imperative to ensure a cozy home that is adequately heated, providing you and your family much needed relief from the harsh climatic conditions. Whether it is indoor games, reading, quiet family dinners, entertaining guests, watching movies in your home theater, or simply relaxing, you should be able to do all that you want to, in your indoor space – at a comfortable temperature!

The use of home heating systems is no doubt indispensable to survive the cold weather. While there are quite a few home heating options, installing a hydronic heating system in Ottawa or anywhere else in Canada is an especially good idea for several reasons.
It provides reliable heating, in an energy efficient manner, is cost efficient, planet friendly, and above all, extremely safe for homes. We examine in depth each of these advantages.

Boilers & Hydronic Heating Systems in Ottawa

Hot water heating is extremely efficient and versatile. Many new homes in Ottawa now use Hybrid Heating systems which include a high-efficiency boiler to provide heating through various methods. It includes wall or floor radiant heating, hydronic air handlers or convection or traditional cast iron radiators. Often, indirect water heaters or instantaneous domestic hot water heating is also provided through boilers, as well as pool or spa heating via specialized heat exchangers. Similarly, hydronic heating systems in Ottawa are often used in snow melt systems to keep walkways, driveways and parking ramps clear of ice and snow.

Is Efficiency Important To You?

Whether it’s a simple heating system retrofit, or a more complex system, there is no matching the comfort and overall efficiency hydronic heating, such as a boiler heater system, can provide.

Hyrdonic heating is as efficient as it is simple, making it a superb alternative to other heating systems and functions just as well in homes and swimming pools alike. The system functions by heating water through sturdy and extremely efficient gas boilers and moving it through a system of sealed pipes and panel radiators – the heated water moves through the pipes to radiators in each room, throughout the home, distributing heat evenly. This heating principle redefines efficiency as the used up hot water is reused – it’s reheated and circulated again. The boiler that heats the water can simultaneously heat the swimming pool as well as melt the snow on the parking ramps or driveways.

Besides, it minimizes the possibility of heat loss through ceilings, further reducing energy consumption and increasing energy efficiency. As can be seen, hydronic heating systems in Ottawa allow you and your family to enjoy a snuggly warm home, with lower energy utilization and costs.

Safe & Healthy Alternative to Other Heating Systems

A sealed system of pipes makes hydronic heating a safe alternative as it’s devoid of exposure to flames or electrical connections. Moreover, since heat is distributed through water as opposed to air – the common medium for spreading heat in most other types of heating systems – hydronic or boiler heating system for houses is safer not only in terms of fewer probability of accidents but also in terms of providing cleaner air that’s devoid of dust, harmful allergens, and air-borne particles.

For this reason, many homeowners prefer to use the hydronic heating system in Ottawa or generally speaking any cold region, especially if one or more family members have any type of respiratory illness or genetic susceptibility to it due to family history of similar ailments. In addition hydronic heating operates in a natural way, using natural convection and radiation, so it doesn’t lead to dry air or humidity, as it does with other types of heating systems.

Reliability & Cost Effectiveness Go Hand in Hand

The sealed system of hydronic heating also creates an avenue for easy and low upkeep. Since there are very few moving parts, the need for repair and maintenance is quite minimal. The low probability of a sudden breakdown also makes the system reliable, allowing guaranteed heating in those cold, brutal months. Cost efficiency through less frequent need for repair or replacement of parts and not to mention low cost of operation is another crucial advantage of hydronic heating systems in Ottawa.

However, to reap all the aforementioned advantages it’s absolutely essential that hydronic heating systems are well designed and properly installed. Climate Works has licensed hydronic designers on staff to guide you through every aspect of Hydronic Heating systems and Boilers, specific to Ottawa and your home. Done right, there is no better home heating system for the cold winters in the Ottawa area. To get more information about the boilers we work with, select a brand below.
