In this paper a critical analysis on the areas of improving the heating systems in the UK homes is presented to the reader.
This chapter provides an insight on the heating systems used in the domestic heating along with the analysis of energy consumption by the equipments. The chapter also investigates the effects of the heating systems on the atmospheric pollution and the depletion of non-renewable sources of energy.
This chapter investigates the design constructs of the buildings and the heating systems that influence the efficiency of the heating systems. The investigation is focused upon the comfort requirements of the residents of a building as the end-user (i.e.) the person living in the houses are the judge for the optimum level of temperature in their place.
This chapter presents an overview of the objectives set out in this report followed by the conclusion to the report. The analysis on the objectives will justify the consistency of the research to achieve the aim of this report.
A heat-generating device, which generates the heat energy mostly in the form of a boiler, is the first element of a heating system. The heat so generate is distributed through a network of conduction devices, ductwork and pumps, through which the heating medium (i.e.) the element that is used for transferring the neat from the source to the sink (air or water or any other suitable conductor of heat), is circulated throughout the building through radiators. Controls like thermostats allow the residents to control the heat levels to accommodate their requirements in terms of comfort through temperature control. (Heating systems, climate solutions - 2006)
A critical analysis on the central heating system is presented in the next section.
