It is surprising that a hydronic heating system can be installed in a DIY (Do it Yourself) manner. But it is the design concept of hydronics that is tricky, not the installation procedure.  If the supplier and installer are clear on what a particular building requite, then the system can be designed accordingly.

DIY Hydronic heating kits include all the components necessary for installing a fully operational heating system. Systems are designed to efficiently meet the client’s heating requirements. Full instructions and schematics are included.

  • Operation manual
  • Installation instructions
  • Plumbing schematic
  • Electrical schematic
  • Heat Piping
  • Pipe fittings
  • Pumps and filters
  • System fill kit
  • Manifold
  • Heat Source.

As many DIY hydronic systems are installed as part of a larger DIY project it may take many months, or years, to complete. As such, it may not be necessary to simultaneously purchase all of the hydronic parts. Kits can be purchased in stages, allowing other parts of a building to be purchased and installed as schedule’s permit.

DIY projects can be undertaken to save money, or for the sense of accomplishment, or because a particular end result is not commercially available. The amount of time taken for personal projects is often underestimated, so monetary saving is minimal; it can be more economical to earn extra money and hire a professional builder. However, personal satisfaction is a legitimate factor. If you enjoy both the process and the end result a DIY hydronic heating project can be a worthwhile undertaking.
