What is an Apollo heating system?

Apollo HydroHeat systems are water-based heating units that provide both forced air heating and hot water to your faucets. These units use energy stored in the tank to heat your home, as opposed to continually heating water throughout the day.

Is hydro air heating efficient?

Efficiency and Reliability Hydro-air systems are as efficient or more efficient than conventional forced-air furnaces. If your home uses an older forced-air furnace and water heater, upgrading to a hydro-air system will let you replace both appliances with a single, high-efficiency system.

How does Hydro heat work?

The hydronic system simply heats water and moves it through sealed pipes to radiators throughout the home. The sealed system can also be used to heat towel rails, floor slabs, even swimming pools, anywhere where it is needed. Hydronic Heating heats water at its source via super energy efficient Gas Boilers.

How old is my Apollo hot water tank?

Apollo Water Heater by serial number The age of your Apollo water heater can not be determined by the manufactured date located on the data plate. The age of your Apollo water heater can be determined by the serial number located on the data plate.

Is Hydro air forced air?

A hydro-air system is part hydronic and part forced air. In this type of system, either a gas- or oil-fired boiler heats water that is pumped through a heat exchanger. Air blown through the heat exchanger is consequently warmed and distributed through ducts.

How does a hydronic forced air heating system work?

How does a Combined Hydronic Air Handler system work? It uses two appliances in conjunction: a high efficiency water heater (ideally with a tank) and the hydronic air handler itself. When you turn on the heat, a small pump brings hot water from the water heater to coils inside the air handler.

How long do hydronic heating systems last?

about 20 years
Age – hydronic systems have an average lifespan of about 20 years. If yours is older than this, you may want to consider replacement, even if the system is still working ok. Waiting for a leak or other problem to occur before replacing the system may cost you more down the road.

Is hydronic heating cheaper to run?

Hydronic heating systems are less expensive to run than some other types of heaters. By some calculations, hydronic heating systems are 35 percent more cost effective than running a ducted system.
