Summer will end soon, so its time to start thinking about getting ready for cold weather.

Most homes are heated using forced air through ducts or with a Hydronic/Radiant Heat piping system. Hydronic Heating systems heat water with a component called a boiler. Several components are attached to the boiler, such as a pump or series of pumps that circulate the hot water through pipes. The piping is installed as part of the hydronic heating system, and they are normally installed throughout your home.

Hydronic Heating can also be used by heating water in a boiler, piping that hot water to a coil located in an air handler, and the air handler will blow air across the coil to produce warm air in your home. This system is a combination hydronic forced air system.

A helpful addition to your hydronic/radiant heating system is to have zone vales connected so you can have multiple thermostats with multiple temperature control in areas of your home. Rooms that you spend most of your time can be warmer than areas that you may not use regularly.

The boiler is the main engine of the hydronic heating system, and it needs preventive maintenance at least once per year.


Hydronic heating/Radiant heating provides a comfortable warm heat source but is slower to change the overall room temperature


The piping that is connected to the boiler can be copper, iron, or now, many systems use plastic (a brand name Pex). This piping can be attached to radiators that are located throughout the home, baseboard style radiators, or piping running in the flooring.

Five-Star Reviews
Our Client Testimonials

We had Comfort Plus Services reroute our main water shut off valve from crawl space to laundry room. Colton and Austin did an awesome job! We were very pleased overall from scheduling the free estimate to scheduling the job.

Krys M.

Leroy was professional right from the start by calling and letting me know he was on his way. He performed the maintenance on my heat pump and gave me lots of informative feedback on the system and recommended some items I should install for safety reasons, with no pressure, and a reasonable estimate too.

Tracy B.

Comfort Plus Services is the absolute best experience we’ve ever had with a plumber. The team involved at our home quickly determined what we needed – and proposed and shortly thereafter installed exactly what they recommended – all in much less time and with much more courtesy than anticipated.

Gary M.

We have had our HVAC cleaning done for years with Comfort Plus. Jim is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. Very neat and professional, friendly and always gives 110%. We receive a reminder call when its time to clean and scheduling is hassle free. We would recommend their service to everyone.

Peggy H.

Alan D. conducted a thorough inspection of our HVAC system, including the mini-split unit in the cabana. As usual, he arrived on time, went right to work and paid attention to every component in our dual unit system. He explained the result of his review to my complete satisfaction.

Alfred C.

Nathan was our technician today. He is always on time. He calls to give us a heads up that he is just about here. He’s professional and friendly and extremely helpful with advice about our unit. Very pleased with the service he provides when they maintenance the unit once a year.
