ARLINGTON, Va. - The Hydronics Industry Alliance has announced the launch of its new Website, myhomeheating.com. According to the alliance, the new site provides accurate, reliable, and current information on all types of hydronic home heating.

For quick accessibility, the new Website has individualized sections for builders and remodelers, architects and engineers, heating contractors, and homeowners. The site details the benefits and applications of hydronic heating and answers frequently asked questions. Currently, only the section for homeowners is active. The other sections are now under construction.

The Hydronics Industry Alliance, chaired by Richard Simons, director, residential combustion controls, Honeywell International, is a coalition of members of the Hydronics Institute Division of the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA). Twenty-seven companies have joined together to increase industry and consumer awareness of the latest technological advances in home heating comfort.

“Hydronic heating is one of America’s fastest-growing trends in home comfort,” said Simons. “Now, when homeowners ask about home heating comfort, contractors and builders can turn to myhomeheating.com for in-depth and up-to-date information on hydronic heating. This is where contractors and builders can quickly get specific details on hydronic installation and applications, including I=B=R School training, sizing guidelines, certification requirements, and links to Hydronics Industry Alliance members’ Websites. Hydronic heating is an idea whose time has come again, and myhomeheating.com brings hydronic information and resources together in one convenient online place.”

Hydronic heating systems use a boiler to heat water that is used as the heat transfer medium. The heated water is then circulated to heat distributors located throughout the home. These heat distributors can be radiators, finned tube baseboard, radiant tubing, towel warmers, and kick space heaters. The boiler can also be used to indirectly heat domestic water and whirlpool baths and can also be used for ice and snow melting on sidewalks and driveways.
