Can hydronic heating work off-grid?
Yes, hydronic heating can be powered by a solid-fuelled boiler using wood and pellet or an electric heat pump in combination with wind turbines and solar panels and battery storage. SNUG Hydronic Heating together with market leaders in sustainability and energy efficiency can provide and supply a battery storage solution for your home.
Solid fuelled boilers are ideally suited for rural locations which have a surplus supply of wood or other type of solid fuel and want an economical and efficient system of generating hot water for heating.
Electric heat pumps would require a properly-sized battery pack for domestic power demand to ensure continuous and uninterrupted power supply. As Victorians can experience longer periods of overcast weather, resulting in insufficient battery recharge from solar panels, we highly recommend using grid connection or power generator as back up to recharge your battery system when necessary.
