Helpful Home Heating Tips

Helpful Home Heating TipsOne of the biggest sources of carbon dioxide is the fossil fuels which are burned to heat our homes and our water. Gas boilers which heated our water and our homes were the standard until fairly recently. When it comes to carbon dioxide emission gas burns cleaner than either oil or coal. You can reduce your homes carbon dioxide emissions by as much as thirty percent by installing a modern condensing boiler. While it would be nice to eliminate the burning of fossil fuels entirely, this is a nice step in the right direction.

Types of Systems

There are many different types of home heating systems available these days, from systems that heat the entire home to units that heat a single room. They also use a variety of different fuels including electricity, oil, LPG, solid fuel, and gas. There are a number of factors which go into determining which system may be right for your including fuel availability, fuel storage, operating costs, and initial equipment investment costs.

Choosing the Right Heating System

The wet central heating system is the most common type of domestic heating installation. The room is quickly warmed as water is run through copper piping between the heat generators and the heat emitters. These types of heating systems almost always use copper components. There are detailed criteria for these systems based upon the maximum water velocities and pump in heating installation. In order to have safe and effective operation of the system you will also need to consider the tube size.

Copper tubing and cylinders are the best things to use for the supply and storage of hot water, no mater what type of heating system you may have. When individual room heaters are used these are separate packages, otherwise they can be an integral part of the homes total heating system. Other inexpensive ways to heat the home are solar heating and heat pumps.
