Comfort in the home is determined by many factors, among which heat is of great importance. The type of heating depends mainly on the category of housing. High-rise buildings have centralized heating, which cannot be controlled independently. Such heating of houses needs to be constantly paid great attention. But in a country house or a country house, you can install such heating, which can be adjusted at your discretion. This heating of a house or country house can be turned on or off as needed. The use of such heating allows you to set a certain temperature and provide the house with hot water.
Heating of private houses is divided into types:
• furnace heating, which people have been using for centuries. With this type of heating, the house is heated using a stove, consisting of a furnace and a chimney. Brick is most often used as a building material for the construction of the furnace. A brick oven is being plastered. Heat enters the house from the walls of the stove heated to a high temperature;
• water heating, which is provided by the circulation of water heated in the boiler through radiators and pipes;
• air heating, in which the heat in the house is provided by the circulation of hot air through the air ducts, heated by an air heater;
• electric heating, where heat is provided by hot water heated by electricity in a specially installed water boiler. At the same time, the process of mixing water in radiators and pipes occurs naturally.
Electric heating is environmentally friendly and safe for residents. Such heating is characterized by hygiene and the absence of bulky appliances for heating, as well as the ease of temperature control.
Heating systems for houses:
Heating boilers (look here)
In the presence of gas supplied to the house, it is more expedient to use a gas boiler. And in the absence of gas, you can use electric columns to heat water. In the conditions of using solid fuels, steel or cast-iron water-heating boilers are installed.
Heating radiators are usually made of two types of metal. Cast iron, steel, aluminum or bimetal are used for their production. These radiators can have different sizes and different power. Most often, heating radiators are installed under the windows of rooms in niches, since this arrangement is most practical. This place should not be blocked by upholstered furniture, which may interfere with the flow of heat into the room.
Pipes for heating
Heating pipes are made of iron, plastic and copper. But plastic pipes for heating have a short service life, since the passage of hot water through such pipes leads to their deformation. Iron pipes also do not differ in durability, corrosion appears on them, their appearance deteriorates and then the pipes generally become unusable. The most durable and practical are copper pipes.
