Research And Insight


Hydronics is the term describing the use of water as a heat-transfer medium in heating systems, and a cooling-transfer medium in cooling systems. 

Types of hydronic systems: 

    • heated water 

    • chilled water 

    • steam 

Hydronic systems may further be classified by factors such as: 

    • Flow (forced/gravity) 

    • Temperature (low/high) 

    • Pressure (low/high) 

    • Piping arrangement (e.g. 1- or 2-pipe system) 

    • Pumping arrangement 

Grundfos meets the pumping requirements for hydronic heating systems, for example hydronic radiant floor heating.
