The article offers information on the several competitors of hydronic heating. It is said that furnace is the main competitor since most of Americans heat with furnaces, and because of its low cost. Another one is the warm glass used by engineers to heat airplane windows. Other competitors include electric radiant, electric space heaters and super insulation.
