HUG Hydronics: Pioneering the Future of Heating with Innovative Radiant Systems

12 Jun 2024

HUG Hydronics is revolutionizing the heating industry with its innovative heating system, offering an efficient and easy-to-install solution for homes and repair shops. Farmer Ed Bruley of Milaca, Minnesota, appreciates his new heated concrete floors installed with the HUG Hydronics system, which he finds comfortable for working on his equipment.

Understanding Radiant Heating

Radiant heating systems, such as the one offered by HUG Hydronics, utilize piping embedded in concrete floors to circulate heated water or antifreeze. The heat source can vary, including electric, gas, wood, solar or waste oil. Thermostat-controlled systems allow for different temperatures in multiple zones, improving comfort and energy efficiency.

The benefits of hydronic radiant floor heating include:

  • Energy Efficiency: It is more efficient than traditional forced-air systems, providing stable heating and preventing freezing in case of power outages.
  • Comfort: Warm concrete floors are more comfortable to work on, dry quickly, and heat up quickly after exposure to cold.
  • Safety: The boiler can be isolated from the heated area, ensuring safety.
  • Quiet Operation: The system operates quietly without drafts, hot or cold spots, and reduces airborne contaminants.

HUG Hydronics System

HUG Hydronics is a straightforward and reliable hydronic system. Its proprietary high-performance submersible pump, brushless, three-phase, low-voltage DC pump offers high flow rates and long service life. The system can service up to two heating loops per pump, providing redundancy and continuity in case of a pump failure.

Key features of the HUG Hydronics system include:

  • Ease of Installation: The system is designed for easy installation, allowing even novices to set it up in about an hour.
  • Simplicity: The system minimizes tubing joints, reducing potential leak points and eliminating the need for pressure tanks and relief valves.
  • Reliability: Constructed from rugged polymers and stainless steel, the system is designed for years of efficient, trouble-free operation.
  • Long Lifespan: The proprietary submersible pumps have a lifespan of over 30,000 hours.
  • Safety and Efficiency: Dedicated fuses for each pump ensure that a single failure does not disrupt the entire system.

HUG Hydronics operates with an 11-gallon tank of heated fluid and can manage up to nine separate heating loops. The system's simplicity and reliability make it a valuable option for new constructions in colder climates across the United States, Canada and Northern Europe.
