In this small article I will introduce you to the heat flow rate, also called heat performance, as another basic and important quantity of heating technology. The heat flow rate is given as (Q point).[Read more…] about Heat Flow Rate – Performance in Heating Technology
Today I would like to introduce the specific heat capacity to you in a slightly smaller article. The specific heat capacity indicates the quantity of heat that a substance can release or absorb in relation to its mass when the temperature changes. The temperature change is given as temperature difference in Kelvin .[Read more…] about What is Specific Heat Capacity?
In this article I would like to show you the connection between energy, work and quantity of heat. This basic is relatively easy to understand and important for understanding more complex facts.[Read more…] about Energy and Work in Heating Technology
In this short article I will explain what a heat pump system is, how it works and what are its advantages and disadvantages. The most important feature of a heat pump system is the use of a pump to transport water in the heating system. An alternative heating system is gravity heating.
Heat Pump System
In a heat pump system, the heating water is forced to circulate in a heating circuit with the help of a circulation pump. The circulation pump can be installed in the flow pipe (FP) or in the return pipe (RP). However, it has become generally accepted to install the pump in the flow pipe. If you can’t imagine a circulating pump, you will find a modern circulation pump in Fig. 1.[Read more…] about What is a heat pump system and how does it work?
In this article I’ll explain to you what a Direct Vent System is. A Direct Vent System is a chimney or an exhaust pipe with two parallel flow channels (double-pipe flue). The hot exhaust gas of the fireplace is discharged over the inner channel and fresh air supplies the heater simultaneously with combustion air over the outside channel.[Read more…] about What is a Direct Vent System?
