Looking for a viable alternative to the dusty, noisy ducted central heating systems so prevalent in Australian homes? Introducing hydronic heating!


Hydronic home heating systems are considered to be the most efficient, comfortable, flexible and innovative style of heating on the market. It has been one of the main heating systems of choice throughout Europe for decades, and this same popularity is starting to take roots here in Australia.

The boilers that we use in our systems here at Cambro have been manufactured in Europe, the home of hydronic heaters. They are coupled with high quality floor coils and panel radiators to ensure that your home is provided with a luxurious level of warmth.

We have found that the use of hydronic heating supplies in Melbourne can offer our homes a variety of advantages over other systems. It is draught free, it is recommended for asthma and allergy sufferers, it is extremely quiet in operation, it has lower running costs, it doesn’t have any exposed hot components, it doesn’t circulate dust, and it can be an extremely energy efficient choice for the home.

Panel Radiators
Mounted to the Wall

The radiators are mounted to the wall in each of the rooms that you wish to heat. This is done quite unobtrusively and the panels will fit quite flush to the wall.

One is Enough

For most rooms a single radiator will provide ample warmth. Larger rooms, however, may require two panels to ensure that the space heats up with the rest of the house.

Fed by Pipes

The radiators are fed hot water from pipes that run beneath a timber floor or through the roof space (subject to availability). We will help you to determine the best option.

Floor Coils

Laid under the Floor

The coils are laid beneath the floors of your home, directly into the concrete slab (when it is being poured). The installation can be handled by your plumber or our team.

Heat Transfer

The pipes are designed to warm up the concrete slab, which will then radiate heat into the room above. Most floor coverings are suitable for use with hydro heating.

Even Level of Warmth

The heat will spread throughout every inch of the floor beneath your home, leaving no corner untouched. It will also evenly disperse from the floor to the ceiling.

slab heating

Slab heating is installed when your house is being constructed; pipes are laid into the concrete slab as it’s being poured. Heat will radiate up through the floor and into the room beyond.

hydronic radiators

Panel radiators are mounted to the walls of your home, making them a perfect choice for pre-existing properties. Hot water is passed through the panel, allowing heat to radiate out into the room.

slab & Radiators Combined

Sometimes, neither a slab or radiator system is the best fit. This is when our combination slab and radiator systems can come to the rescue – they’re ideal for extensions, multiple storey and split level homes.


All of the boilers in our range have been manufactured in Europe, the world leader in hydronic heating. They can be connected to a variety of power sources, ensuring they will match your home.

trench heating

Trench heating is an ideal solution when floor to ceiling windows or even large sliding doors make traditional radiator systems impossible. Attractive grilles hide the unit from sight and allow heat to pass through.

towel rails

Who doesn’t want toasty, warm towels during the winter? Our range of standard and designer towel rails also double as room heaters, ensuring that your bathroom is kept comfortable all year round.


At Cambro Boilers, we have two slightly different hydronic heating systems to choose from – floor coils are the most popular and are embedded in the concrete slab, whereas panel radiators are mounted to the wall. Both types of system are quite effective at keeping away the winter chill.

If you would prefer your plumber to handle the installation for you, we can provide you with the hydronic heating supplies he will need. This includes your choice of boiler (manufactured in Europe, the home of hydronics), thermostat and all of the components relevant to your system.

There are plenty of reasons why you should choose a hydronic heating service over other methods of keeping your home warm; check out some of the best ones here!

No Drafts

With no air movement whatsoever, drafts and cold spots will be completely eliminated from your home. This results in an even level of warmth, from floor to ceiling.

Low Maintenance

The heating equipment requires very little maintenance – simply have it professionally serviced every couple of years to ensure its optimal working condition.

Thermostatically Controlled

All of our systems come equipped with a thermostat, which allows you to control the temperature of your home. Multiple thermostats can be used if you would like zones.

Energy Efficient

Hydronic heating is both energy efficient and cost effective, making it incredibly affordable to run. These systems are also highly environmentally friendly.
