Hydronic heating (with hot water): electric or gas boiler?

In Quebec, everyone should be able to rely on an efficient heating system. At Confort Expert, we offer a wide range of efficient and durable hydronic heating systems. But how should you choose between an electric and a natural gas boiler? This article will help you make an informed decision. Enjoy the read!

How does hydronic heating work?

In a hydronic heating system, the heat produced by electricity, natural gas or oil is transported by water to radiators that distribute it to different parts of a house. The water then leaves the radiators and returns, cooled, to what is called a boiler (or a kettle). The boiler then re-heats the liquid, which is again sent back to the radiators. In most cases, the water circulation is ensured by a pump system; in other cases, the process is done naturally, by gravity.

Two types of boilers to ensure your comfort

At Confort Expert, we offer electric and natural gas boilers.

  • Electric boilers: Easy to install, electric boilers are clean and compact heating units suitable for both private homes and commercial spaces. Reliable, they remain 100% effective for almost an unlimited time. Electric boilers can also be used in dual-energy mode in very cold weather, which allows you to take advantage of the Hydro-Québec DT rate.
  • Natural gas boilers: Natural gas boilers are among the most efficient heating systems on the market. Whatever type of gas boiler you choose (with atmospheric exhaust or condensation), it will generate very few polluting particles. In addition, an annual inspection of your gas boiler will ensure its longevity and efficiency.

One thing is certain: By choosing hydronic heating, you will enjoy a very effective system! At Confort Expert, we trust the best brands to ensure your comfort: Thermo 2000, Lockinvar, Granby Industries and Buderus.
