Central heating system is the preferred method today for heating a home. There are seven types of central heating systems: water circulation, steam boilers, heat pumps, forced air furnace, solar heating, electric resistance and the biomass system. Central heating systems bring advantages over other type of heating systems.
All the other methods of home heating are less efficient than the central heating system. Using fireplaces or baseboard heaters to heat the air isn’t as good as using a water-fed system. The energy given by water is four times bigger than the air’s. Plus transferring heat from water to the air in the building will lead to a more even temperature around the building.
The central heating system creates heat in one room and then transfers it through a set of ducts throughout the building. This way the risk of damage in the house is smaller. The entire building will heat fasters because the rooms are all getting heat simultaneously. When something is wrong it is a lot easier to locate the problem as the production unit is in one room.
The central heating system uses a thermostat that allows you to control the temperature. you can turn off the heating inside one room and the thermostat will stop the heating when the desired temperature is reached.
You will pay a lot of money at the installation of the central heating system, but in time the savings you make will recover your money fast. Using water is also more economic because being stored in small pipes it will maintain its temperature for a longer period and also heat up again very fast.
