Hydronic systems utilise hot water to heat a room or building. Water is typically heated in a boiler, and then pumped via piping to radiators or convector panels around the home. Heat is transferred directly from these to the air in the room. A homeowner can choose the number and location of the panels, which are often sited below a window, to maximise insulation and provide a barrier to cold air entry. Radiators come in a number of configurations, including single, double and triple panels; with single units providing the most radiant heat. The cheapest fuel for use in the boiler is currently natural gas, with solid fuel, such as wood, the next most economical option.

It is often more economical to heat rooms which are in use, as opposed to the whole house.
