Radiant & Hydronic Heating Services in Southern Maryland
Serving Hollywood & Surrounding Areas
While hydronic heating isn’t as common as gas or oil-powered furnaces, it’s becoming a popular alternative to these systems due to the ability to more evenly heat your home. A hydronic system uses a liquid, usually water, that’s heated and then pumped through loops of plastic piping built into the floors and baseboards throughout your home. These loops are usually run through the slab beneath your home or through your floor joist system, allowing them to evenly radiate heat in every room of your house. Modern systems give you immense energy-efficiency and flexibility as well as more precise control over which rooms you’d like to heat.
Hydronic heating are complex, and require a substantial amount of experience to work on in order to ensure they’re functioning properly.

Common Radiant Heating Problems
Hydronic and radiant heating systems are a lot different from your traditional heat pump or furnace heating system, and as such they’re prone to a number of unique problems that you may not have to worry about otherwise. While some of these issues are easy fixes, many of them require a substantial amount of work and specialized knowledge to make sure the job is done correctly and that no other issues can emerge after.
Here are just a few of the common hydronic radiant heat system issues we can help you with:
- Leaks: A water leak in a hydronic system can happen from faulty or suspect plumbing connections, as well as work done to your home’s flooring or drywall.
- Freezing pipes: During particularly cold weather, the water in an exposed section of one of these plumbing lines can freeze, causing damage to the entire system.
- Air in the lines: Air in your radiant heat lines can cause loud, obnoxious noise when using your system. Normally, a radiant heat system works silently, but this noise can be annoying. Air in your lines can also cause pipe oxidization, which corrodes connections and damages your components.
- Bad insulation: Your foundation needs to be insulated from the ground below in order to avoid heat simply leaking out into the land beneath your slab. Issues with this insulation can result in inefficiency and heat loss.
