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 explain what a heating system with circulating pump is, how it works and what its advantages and disadvantages are. The most important feature of a heating system with circulating pump is the use of a pump to transport water in the heating system. An alternative heating system is gravity heating.
Heating system with circulating pump
In a heating system with circulating pump, 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 How does a heating system with circulating pump 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?
