Warm air rises, so why not have your home heating source installed beneath your house? Hydronic underfloor heating, also known as slab or trench heating, is laid into your slab as a warm-water pipe system. It is designed to create an optimum temperature to maintain comfortable warmth throughout your home. The underfloor heating system converts heat from the slab into a radiant heat source. Hydronic underfloor heating is a safe and hygienic choice when you’re assessing Geelong heating options for your new home.

Because there is no chance of scalding or burns, trench heating is an ideal home heating option for the elderly or a family with children. Hydronic underfloor heating is also a hygienic method of Geelong heating, because it provides ambient heat as opposed to the circulation of allergens and dust. The system eliminates cold drafts, and the heat warms objects and ultimately people, as opposed to air.

At Rickard Heating and Cooling we can also discuss sales and installation of Geelong hydronic underfloor heating for existing or pre-built homes, as well as including systems in planning for a new home. There are vast benefits to choosing hydronic slab heating, because it is a clean, safe and zero-allergen central system. Trench heating operates at low water temperatures, which significantly reduces costs and saves energy.

Underfloor hydronic radiant heat systems are aligned closely with the ‘optimum heat curve’ as defined by the heating industry. This means the system is the most economical and efficient heating option on the market. Rickard Heating and Cooling will ensure your space is comfortably heated in a hygienic and safe way. The floor slab becomes a slow-release, radiant heat bank providing consistent and comfortable temperatures throughout.

Hydronic underfloor heating is a product of hot water heating, and is yet another Geelong heating option which we specialise in at Rickard Heating and Cooling.
