How can we use hot water to heat large buildings?

    Radiant flooring uses hot water to heat floors. This works by putting small pipes underneath the flooring and piping hot water through them. It really works great. You can do this in walls too. I imagine you could do this throughout the entire large building and the radiant heat alone would probably bring down heating costs. 



    Hydronic Radiant Floors

    Hydronic (liquid) systems are the most popular and cost-effective radiant heating systems for heating-dominated climates. Hydronic radiant floor systems pump heated water from a boiler through tubing laid in a pattern underneath the floor. In some systems, the temperature in each room is controlled by regulating the flow of hot water through each tubing loop. This is done by a system of zoning valves or pumps and thermostats. The cost of installing a hydronic radiant floor varies by location and also depends on the size of the home, the type of installation, the floor covering, remoteness of the site, and the cost of labor.
