Hydronic heating is the most energy efficient and comfortable way to heat your home. Hydronic heating uses a boiler like the LAARS Neotherm to heat hot water that passes through baseboard, in-floor, or traditional radiators. Using this type of boiler enables you use an indirect water heater, which is more energy efficient, more reliable, and more productive than traditional gas or electric water heaters.
How an Indirect Water Heater Works
Extremely hot water--water too hot to use for washing--is pumped in a tube through a water tank. Usually, the tube coils around and around inside the tank. As the water flows through the tube, more and more of its heat flows out into the water. The tube with cooler water then flows back to its own heater, where it is heated again.
