In this article I present the heat flow rate as a further basic of heating technology. The heat flow rate is the heat performance and an important parameter in building services engineering. [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 article I explain what a heat pump system is and how it works. In a heat pump system, the heating water is forced to circulate in a heating circuit with a circulating 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?
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.
