For housing, located in domestic climatic conditions, the quality of the heating system of houses is particularly important. Therefore, in the process of designing a housing, the solution of this problem needs to pay special attention. Organize home heating can be in several ways. The most common is the technology of creating an autonomous heating system.
Maintain a comfortable temperature in residential premises in most today allows heating and a warm floor of water or electric type. The use of electricity for these purposes is a slightly more costly, albeit effective way. In this case, electric type heaters are installed in the premises, which have certain advantages. Their installation does not require much time, but all work should include the presence of specially developed technical conditions, the laying of separate cables and the installation of a special meter.
Electric heaters quickly heat the air in the room, but contribute to a decrease in the level of oxygen in it (in the case of convectors and appliances with open heating elements). More practical are heating systems made in the form of electric underfloor heating. They are made using film infrared elements, heating mats or a special cable.
The traditional heating system in homes is a water heating system. It uses water as a heat carrier. The coolant is heated in a gas or electric boiler, after which, by forced circulation. It is supplied to the radiators placed in the premises. Such a heating system can also be mounted on the principle of «warm floors».
For these purposes, pipelines are placed under the floor covering, through which heated water passes, giving off heat to the room. It is also possible to make water-type warm floors in an apartment, but this is associated with certain technical difficulties and the need for coordination with the housing maintenance organization.
Choosing a heating system for a country house should be based on the specific conditions of its operation, the possibility of installation work and financial capabilities.
