Hot Water Plumbing Service – Your Reliable Plumbing and Electrical Experts
Understanding your current hot water heating system is one of the most important things to do. Most of the homes use the central heating system or the electric storage heaters. A number of homes have also been using the individual heaters. Individual heaters are normally not part of the central heating system. Consider understanding the following:
What is electric heating?
In most homes, we do not have heaters. Instead, the radiators possess the electric heaters. These heaters heat up during the night taking advantage of the cheap off-peak electricity charges. The absorbed heat is then given out during the day.
In case you own storage heaters, then you will have the hot water cylinder heated by either of two immersion heaters. This electric storage heating system is made common in flats, areas with no gas connections, and with the rented properties.
The system is considered to be the most expensive compared to other options. It is also known to emit more carbon dioxide. Controlling electric storage heaters is considered to be harder than radiator control. This is especially the case with older systems.
In case you have installed such a hot water plumbing service in your home, you may consider employing the following power saving tips.
• Replace the old storage heater with more controllable new storage heaters.
• Consider fitting thermostats and better control methods to ensure that your system runs more efficiently.
• It is good to make improvements to the insulation and draught-proofing system.
• You can also replace your current system with a more efficient hot water system
What is the secondary heating?
Secondary heating refers to individual heaters such as portable fixed gas fires and electric heaters. They are used in addition to the central heating system. The modern central heating is considered to be more efficient in comparison to individual heaters.
However, using individual heaters to heat specific spaces for a limited time can be helpful. It aids to avoid overheating some spaces that may not need to be heated, or those that are not infrequent use. Secondary heating is usually produced by:
• The portable electric heaters examples oil filled, pane, fan, and convection heaters.
• The portable halogen heaters
• Open fires
• It can as well be produced by burning wood or solid fuel stoves.
• The gas heaters usually run on bottled gas or paraffin.
• The traditional gas fire has been used for secondary heating.
• Well-mounted gas heaters.
• Range cookers
Fan and halogen heaters are smaller secondary heaters and can only be used in rooms that need heating for a very short time. In case there is no central heating in a room, electric convention panel heaters or the oil based heaters can be used. Electric heating is the considered to be the efficient heating system, but most costly, producing a lot of carbon dioxide as well.
In case you use electric storage heaters, ensure that they are always turned off when not in use. Wood and other solid fuel burning are considered to be more efficient than open fires and are fewer carbon emitters. They can be used to provide enough heat for one room.
