How would you best describe the benifits of hydronic heating over forced air heating to someone without a heating background?

    The definition of comfort...

    is not being aware of your surroundings. You are neither too hot, nor too cold. You are "comfortable".

    Hot water heating is the epitomy of comfort, with hot water base board being near the lower end of the scale, and radiant on the upper end of the scale.

    Pure silent comfort.

    That said, you still need to move air to provide total comfort. Just not as fast and furious nor continuously.

    Don't forget the ability

    to zone that you get with hydronics. You only heat the spaces that are in use, and can have different setpoints for different zones. More efficient, more comfortable, espcially in larger homes. The flexibility is also a great feature. I used to have a 100 MBH furnace, a 50 MBH water heater, and a 80 MBH garage unit heater. I now have a 100 MBH boiler (and no chimneys) handling all the same loads.
