How you heat your home is extremely important. Not only will the best heating system keep you cosy in winter, it will also have a big impact on your carbon footprint and your energy bills.
Choosing a heating system is an important decision to make, as it locks in your heating costs for over a decade.
A system’s energy performance depends on the fuel available to you and how much space you need to heat. If you are replacing an existing heating system, you should consider if replacing like for like is the best option.
Below we list the positives for each type of heating, but the choice is... up to you!
• They provide substantial heat by removing moisture from the air.
• The release of heat takes place both from the hearth of the stove and from the hot air that runs through the buri. So, the longer its length, the greater the heat output in the space. In fact, special components can increase this performance.
• It requires less wood than the fireplace, it is more efficient than the fireplace, it is easily installed and can be removed from the room during the months when it is not in use.
• Depending on its type (cast iron or steel), it heats up immediately or maintains temperature for a long time after the fire goes out, and offers the householder autonomy as, in the event of a power cut, it can be used for cooking or to heat water.
• They are self-powered, which means that - depending on consumption, you may not have to worry about filling them for two or even three days.
• They are four times more efficient than ordinary wood stoves
• They are ideal for use in domestic spaces where there is no fireplace, as they expel the smoke, with a small bur, through a small hole in the wall. Thus, practically, there is no escape of exhaust gases into the interior.
• The oil filled radiator is an individual-local heating unit – heater. The oil body is very popular due to its ease of use and low purchase cost.
Oil radiators are filled with diathermic oil, which is heated through an electrical resistance.
The space, where the body is installed, is heated effectively- the room where the body is installed. Radiators have large slices which they emit heat into the room.
• Gas heaters have a low purchase price and this is perhaps their most important advantage.
• Modern gas heaters offer impressive design, great energy savings, less air pollution and autonomy.
• All that is needed to operate a gas stove is to place and connect a cylinder to the back of it.
• They are light and small in volume so you can easily carry them from one room to another.
• They are completely silent and will not affect your peace of mind.
• Most have a safety that disables them if they fall.
