What is Central Heating?

Central heating is a cost effective method to warming up the entire interior of a home or commercial building from a local heat generating unit. These units run on various types of fuels depending on your energy needs. The heat is then typically distributed using air ducts, or by feeding hot water or steam through pipes. Solar powered heaters are also a possibility depending on the climate where you live.

Various Systems

There are a variety of central heating systems. Each uses specific boiler technology in various ways. Combination, condensing and systems boilers are the most common types of heating systems and can run on a variety of fuels.

  • Gas – condensing boilers typically use a gas such as propane to heat water, which is then pumped through a network of pipes throughout the building. This type of system is ideal for underfloor heating and be used in very large buildings.
  • Electric – these systems tend to be more expensive as electric energy is automatically converted to heat and distributed using air duct networks. This system is best suited to homes or buildings where all rooms need to be constantly heated.
  • Hydronic – hydronic systems typically use hot water or steam through a closed loop system for heating or alternatively, for cooling. These systems are ideal for heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.
