A Cold, Cold Man

Let me tell you a story. Once there was a young, innocent home owner who wanted to heat the house. Winter had arrived and the days were getting cold, wet and windy.

“How am I going to heat up my home during the winter?” He thought.

First, he tried buying a small heater from his local department store. He plugged it into the wall and sat down in front of it.“Aah, that’s better…” He thought as the hot air hit his legs. He sat down in front of it and read a book. But soon he realised he needed to go to the bathroom. He couldn’t get up, he would freeze again. As he sat there contemplating his problem, he realised his legs were becoming too hot. He tried turning down the heat, but to no avail. He bent down to look at it and was hit by so much dust that he was sneezing for the rest of the night.

So he ditched the heater and came up with another idea.

“I’ll cover all my walls in blankets! Then I’ll be warm and comfy!”

He collected all the blankets in the house that he could find and put them all in the center of the room.

“Um… how am I going to put them up?”

He got a big roll of sticky tape and tried to tape them up. They fell back down again with a whimper. No, this wasn’t going to work either.

He had one more idea. And to him, it was the bet one yet.

“I’ll leave the oven on full blast!” He thought excitedly as he ran into the kitchen. Two hours later, as the fire trucks pulled away, a friend stopped by and told him what to do to heat his home properly.

Floor heating Melbourne. I’d never heard of it either. But it’s the moral of this little story and an essential thing for the upcoming winter.

Hydronic heating warms up water and spreads it around your house with pipes. The heat comes out of the wall with “hydronic heating panels” and before you know it, you’ve got a nice warm bedroom to snuggle up in at the end of a dreary day.

Some people get clever and put the pipes under their floor. We all know that heat rises (remember back to primary school…), so hydronic underfloor heating makes for an even more efficient way of keeping toasty.

When a business wants to heat up, they’ll most likely use hydronic heating. It’s simple, cost effective and non-invasive. Commercial hydronic heating is a big business and one that’s fast on the move.

So our little home owner gave the guys a call and they came around the next day. Before long his house was nice and comfy, shielded from the outside weather. And you know what? He never had to called the fire trucks ever again.
