Hydronic Distribution

What is Hydronic Distribution?

In a hydronic distribution system, piping transfers water from heating or cooling sources (such as boilers or chillers) to terminal units such as baseboard radiators, fan coils, variable-air volume units and chilled beams to effectively heat or cool a structure.

Using water instead of air to heat or cool a structure is a highly efficient form of conditioning a space. That’s because water has the capacity to transport energy 3,500 times greater than air.

Using Wirsbo hePEX™ pipe to transfer water in a hydronic distribution system is a durable, economical method that helps keep costs down and offers greater longevity for the system.
