Local Central Heating Services
A central heating system heats a building from a single source and is a component of the wider air conditioning (short: HVAC) systems that also cool buildings. It usually involves a furnace that converts fossil fuel or electricity to heat which is distributed either through fans forcing heated air through ductwork, a circulating system of water heating radiators in each room, or through low-pressure steam being fed through pipes. The heat generation and distribution system must be flexible in response to the ever-changing heating demand of a building.
The main sources of energy for a central heating system include liquid fuels like oil and kerosene, solid biomass fuels like wood or coal, and gas-fired power stations using natural gas, nuclear, wind, solar or hydroelectric power. However, a significant proportion of the generated heat is lost in combustion and distribution systems (up to 60% for oil), or via transmission losses and electricity use itself.
This is why it’s vital to choose a fully qualified, experienced and reliable heating engineer for your installation.
