Wikipedia facts - about central heating
A central heating system provides warmth to the whole interior of a building (or portion of a building) from one point to multiple rooms. When combined with other systems in order to control the building climate, the whole system may be an HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system.
Central heating differs from space heating in that the heat generation occurs in one place, such as a furnace room in a house or a mechanical room in a large building (though not necessarily at the "central" geometric point). The heat is distributed throughout the building, typically by forced-air through ductwork, by water circulating through pipes, or by steam fed through pipes.
The most common method of heat generation involves the combustion of fossil fuel in a furnace or boiler. Increasingly, buildings utilize solar-powered heat sources, in which case the distribution system normally uses water circulation.
In much of the temperate climate zone, most new housing has come with central heating installed since the Second World War, at least. Such areas normally use gas heaters, district heating, or a oil-fired system, often using forced-air systems. Steam-heating systems, fired by coal, oil or gas, are also used, primarily for larger buildings. Electrical heating systems occur less commonly and are practical only with low-cost electricity or when ground source heat pumps are used. Considering the combined system of central generating plant and electric resistance heating, the overall efficiency will be less than for direct use of fossil fuel for space heating.
Hydraulic works carried out in a domestic boiler are mainly related to the installation of the boiler and the foundation and checking correct operation of the water meter. Counter water must be installed by an authorized plumber who will also make his sealing. In case of any doubt, will also check a meter on the water especially when he suddenly began to show much higher water consumption than before. Usually installed in the boiler room is also a boiler, water heater. After its installation, the current home plumber, could also make his first start and check thanks to proper operation. Household members will be happy with such a solution, especially if the first use of the gas boiler.
Reasons for the increase cost of the work hydraulic
After completing the plumbing major plumbing work, for example, when building a house, it organized the reception of work, during which an assessment is made of the works. It was only after their positive assessment of the property owner will be issued an invoice for the work done so far. Sometimes you may find that the final valuation of the work performed will be higher than the initial estimate. If such an increase in fees for services is justified, then the property owner will be obliged to pay them in full. The increase in fees can be, for example, to provide wholesalers defective materials that had to be exchanged for others. Accordingly, the need to be able to repair the water system already formed, which generated extra costs.
