Hydronic surface heating is a cost-effective and sustainable heating solution for homeowners and investors concerned with comfort and energy efficiency.
Pipelife heating systems comply with projects of all types, sizes and stages of development, while our comprehensive design service ensures setups are tailored to your specific requirements.
Hydronic wall systems are the quickest and easiest way of upgrading properties’ heating capabilities. They are a great solution for avoiding invasive construction methods and projects with limited timeframes. Prefabricated options, such as our gypsum panels, streamline installation and are perfect for energy renovation projects. The pre-assembled panels are simply fixed onto the wall before being plastered over for a smooth, aesthetic finish.
With the rising demand for energy-efficient buildings, underfloor heating is a great way to increase property value and keep running costs in check. Their comprehensive coverage and radiant heat distribution make underfloor systems one of the most energy-efficient heating solutions available. Installation processes can be streamlined with our prefab underfloor heating mats that come preassembled, ready to be rolled out and connected to the manifold.
CONCRETE CORE ACTIVATION
Concrete core activation future-proofs properties by integrating this advanced and sustainable heating technology into the structure of the building. Installation is conducted during the construction of the building envelope, streamlining later project stages. We also offer prefab setups to further minimize installation times and ensure error-free implementation.
BENEFITS OF HYDRONIC HEATING SYSTEMS
Effective hydronic heating systems ensure properties are well-equipped for the winter months. Discover the benefits of our hydronic setups and how they can increase the value, efficiency and comfort of a variety of buildings and outdoor spaces.
By harnessing radiant heat, hydronic systems achieve thermal comfort at lower temperatures than conventional systems — saving energy and reducing bills in the process.
With a range of made-to-measure prefab products, benefit from fast, straightforward and error-free installation across a variety of application areas.
INCREASED PROPERTY VALUE
As an advanced, efficient and low-cost heating solution, hydronic systems increase the property's value while future-proofing it against ever-tightening building efficiency legislation.
GREEN ENERGY COMPATIBILITY
Operating at low temperatures, hydronic heating systems are an ideal match for renewable energy sources — further amplifying the sustainability of this heating method.
From residential energy renovation projects to outdoor snow and ice melting or even sports field turf conditioning, our hydronic solutions cover the full spectrum of heating requirements and applications.
FULL DESIGN SERVICE
Our designers can save you time and resources with tailor-made product systems. Upon determining the most suitable solution for your space, we provide heat loss calculations, product specifications, pipe dimensions, and technical drawings to aid installation.
Hydronic systems heat spaces by running warm water through pipes that are installed beneath floors or inside walls. By utilizing thermal radiation, hydronic heating systems achieve thermal comfort at lower temperatures than forced air systems and use less energy to do so.
Hydronic heating systems work by running warm water through pipes beneath floors or inside walls. By harnessing radiant heat, hydronic systems achieve thermal comfort at lower temperatures than conventional appliances, while their comprehensive surface coverage ensures even, draft-free heating throughout the entirety of a space.
Our hydronic systems can be applied to a wide variety of settings and stages of development. Therefore, installation time varies according to your specific requirements. However, with our range of versatile prefab products, you can save up to 90% of installation time compared to standard setups and enjoy error-free implementation as the products have been pre-assembled under strict factory conditions.
We offer a comprehensive design service to make sure your hydronic heating system is perfectly aligned with your property, saving time and resources in the process.
Pipelife designers provide detailed plans for the application of our hydronic heating systems, including heating-efficiency calculations, energy-saving estimates, and complete product and accessory specifications.
Based on the information you provide, we will develop a system layout proposal and plan how the various systems can be best utilized in your space. Technical specifications and schematic diagrams will also be provided to demonstrate a complete picture of your building’s new hydronic heating system.
Yes, our hydronic heating systems are perfect for a variety of outdoor applications, including sports field turf conditioning and snow and ice melting. In the residential setting, our underfloor hydronic systems can be extended outside to keep footpaths and driveways ice-free.
The main advantage of hydronic heating systems is the energy efficiency they boast over other appliances. By using water as a heat transfer medium and harnessing radiant heat, hydronic systems can achieve thermal comfort at lower temperatures than their alternatives, such as radiators or forced-air systems.
Additionally, their low operating temperatures facilitate connections with sustainable energy sources and systems, such as solar, geothermal, and heat pumps. This is particularly advantageous given the increasing demand for energy-efficient living and working spaces in line with the EU’s net zero carbon emissions strategy.
Yes, hydronic heating systems are well-suited to energy renovation projects. The Pipelife range includes a variety of prefabricated options that are perfect for fast, retrofit installations. Our gypsum wall panels, for example, are easily fitted onto walls before being plastered over — providing hassle-free, effective comfort without the need for unsightly appliances.
Beyond classic underfloor and wall heating, hydronic systems are suitable for a wide variety of applications. Our diverse range of product systems provides options for residential energy renovation projects and industrial-scale building developments alike. Our systems aren’t limited to indoor settings either, with applications for sports field turf conditioning as well as snow and ice melting for public and residential walkways.
