Historically, home heating has been accomplished in a number of ways, Hydronic heating, using water or steam is probably the oldest, and still the most efficient method of distributing heat to a space. Many older Ottawa heating Systems in in use today still use this method.
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. Including 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 the same boiler, as well as pool or spa heating via specialized heat exchangers. Similarly, hydronic heating in Ottawa is often used in snow melt systems to keep walkways driveways and parking ramps clear of ice and snow.
Whether a simple heating system retrofit, or a more complex system, there is no matching the comfort and overall efficiency a hydronically based heating systems can provide.
