Central Heating in COILX Company
Your central heating system plays an important role in your home - keeping you supplied with the heat and hot water that make life so much more comfortable. But what systems are available and how do they work?
Advantages of owning a gas system
EFFECTIVE : Warm water central heating systems heat your whole house .
EFFICIENT : Water transfers energy at four times the rate of air making warm water central heating systems so much more efficient than warm air systems.
ECONOMICAL : The initial set up costs are paid back by the long-term cost benefits.
QUIET : The systems are virtually silent.
QUICK : The house can be warm within minutes of the system being turned on regardless of how cold it is outside.
SAFE : A safe option for children and the elderly because there are no naked flames or elements, and for people with respiratory or allergy problems because there is no forced air flow.
CONTROLLABLE : Systems are fully programmable and they can be thermostatically controlled or turned off in rooms that are not being used.
CUSTOMISED : We work out the specific heating requirements of your house to achieve the best heating solution for your home.
FLEXIBILITY : Choose from a range of different heat source and heat distribution combinations to get the best performance and cost benefits for your lifestyle.
A gas fuelled central heating system will more than likely be cheaper in the long run. Electric boilers are 100% efficient whereas a good modern gas boiler will see about 95% efficiency. As you might expect, some energy from gas boilers is lost through heat.
Central heating is a way of providing warmth in your home from, as the name suggests, one central source. Central heating systems broadly fall into one of the following types:
With a 'wet system' hot water circulates through a system of pipes that connect to the radiators throughout a house. At the centre of the system, a boiler burns a fuel - or sometimes there is a 'heat exchanger' and this heats the water that feeds the network of pipes. 'Wet systems' are the most popular form of heating system in Egypt .
The pipework may also be connected to a hot water cylinder (tank), which will provide a supply of hot water for bathing and washing.
The same water circulates around your home every single day. Here's how it works:
Despite their name, do not just give off radiant heat, in fact they deliver most of their heat through convection ; air warmed by the radiator naturally rises, and cool air falls relative to it, as a result the warmed air circulates and the 'space' in a room is warmed.
Underfloor heating system warms the whole room and stops the need for footwear around the house during those cold winter months! Underfloor heating uses less energy too resulting in lower energy bills. It works via a series of pipes laid under the floor and as they cover the whole room, it means that heat can be distributed more evenly than a radiator attached to one wall.
