Panel heating is by far the most popular form of hydronic heating worldwide. Its popularity is due to its flexibility and efficiency.
Panel heating can be installed into new buildings without compromising ceiling heights, creating bulk heads or utilising valuable cupboard space to accommodate ductwork.
Compared to floor ducts, hydronic panels are much less restrictive on furniture positioning. The panels can be installed behind couches, under benches, in fact just about anywhere. Further, the panels don’t need to be located on external walls. In fact, energy can be conserved by installing them on internal walls.
Panel heating can be retro-fitted into existing buildings with limited fuss. The installation of hydronic, as opposed to ducted heating, avoids damage to house footings thus enabling the structural integrity of the building to be retained.
Due to the insignificant size of hydronic pipework, air-flow under the house is not hindered. This is essential in preventing rising damp.
Finally, panel heating is ideal for Melbourne’s climate - it heats up in 20 minutes and cools down in just 2 hours.
