The third step in the “Hydronic Balancing DIY” series involves data recording for further calculations. To do this, we will record the radiators in the building and then determine the system temperatures. These are necessary for the subsequent calculation of the radiator output. However, before we start data recording, it is necessary to know which radiator types are installed in our building. I recommend the following document from DeltaQ – Heating surface types (Recknagel Sprenger). The document is unfortunately only available in german.[Read more…] about Hydronic Balancing DIY – Step 3: Data Recording
In this article I will introduce you to gravity hot water heating. Gravity hot water heating is a heating system based on the physical principle of gravity and works due to the change in density of water. Thus, gravity heating does not require electrical energy for a circulating pump (as in a heating system with circulating pump) and works solely based on the physical properties of water.[Read more…] about How does a gravity hot water heating system work?
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?
