Central Heating Systems
In the simplest sense, a central heating system is a central unit that produces heat which is then dispersed around a building to control its temperature. One of the earliest central heating systems was called a ‘hypocaust’ and was built by the Romans who used large furnaces to produce heat and conducted that heat under floors and through pipes in the wall. Although technology has come along way since the hypocaust, the principle of how the system works is very similar.
The heat in a central heating system is normally generated through the combustion of fuels in a furnace or a boiler. Boilers come in all shapes and sizes and also use many different types of fuel, see what type suits you best. There are also solar powered heat generation as well as heat pumps which convert cold air from outside into hot air. The heat that is generated is then transported around a property through pipes often known as ‘ductwork’. The heat can be transported in different forms; air, water or steam. The system normally then pumps the heat through to heaters or radiators in rooms to boost the temperature, although there are also special underfloor heating systems where the heat comes from pipes under a floor rather than through radiators.
If you choose for a energy efficient way of heating your home or with renewable energy you might be eligible for grants or cheap loans.
