Components of Heating Systems

The central heating boiler is arguably the most important part of a traditional central heating system. They come in several sizes and will provide different levels of energy, fuel sources, and heat output. The level of heat energy (also measured in kW or k BTU) that a boiler is needed to provide through your home depends on a number of mathematical calculations made by one of your Central Heating Specialists. However, it’s important to know exactly what these calculations are before you make any decisions regarding your system.

Furnace’s efficiency rating

In order to begin the calculation, your heating system’s annual efficiency rating will be required. Furnaces that have a lower efficiency rating than your furnace will be less effective at warming up your home. You should also take into account the year-round average temperatures in your area as well as whether or not your furnace is a gas or electric-powered furnace. Once the factors have been established, the equation can begin to be used to determine your central furnace’s efficiency rating.

Fuel utilized

In addition to your annual efficiency rating, your furnace’s fuel type will also be taken into account when determining your heating system’s efficiency rating. Two of the most common types of fuel utilized in central heating systems are electricity and gas. If your heating system uses steam for its fuels, your system’s efficiency rating will also be determined by the amount of time it takes for heated air to travel through your system. Furnaces that take longer to heat the air that it needs to enter your home will use more fuel and therefore need to use more electricity to operate efficiently.

Efficiency level

Next, we’ll discuss how your annual efficiency rating and your furnace’s efficiency level affect your total cost of ownership for your household heating system. One of the biggest factors affecting your annual cost of ownership is the fuel type that your furnace burns. A good rule of thumb is to look at your furnace’s efficiency rating before considering any other elements such as the size of your household or the age of your home. A more efficient furnace will cost more to operate and as a result, will add to your annual heating costs. For example, an older house may only need one or two heating systems to adequately heat and cool the household.

Energy required

The next key component to consider is how much energy your furnace uses to provide the heat or cool air that it requires. If your furnace uses more energy than it takes to heat or cool the air, then it will be costing you more to run. Older furnaces often require more energy to operate than newer ones. One reason for this is because the mechanisms that allow the furnace to burn the fuel has been around longer than most people would think. Many older furnaces use gas, which has a relatively high-efficiency rating. This is because newer furnaces burn fuel at higher efficiency rates using cleaner-burning fuels.

Number of ducts

You should also consider the number of ducts that you will need to insulate your home. Ducts are used to take the heated air from outside the house and bring it back into the house where it is heated. It is important to make sure that you have enough ducts to allow for all of the air movement within your home. If you have a larger home, you may want to consult with an expert who can give you the best advice in regards to insulating your house properly.
