Localized heating systems

The development of localized, or isolated home warming systems has been available for a long time. Despite these systems being primarily used to warm the houses they also have an aesthetic appeal and add the dcor to the home. The construction of localized fire places require a lot of attention to detail due to the fact that poor construction can lead to the emission of fumes to the interior of the house which would make the house stuffy and congested. Fire places in the home serve as a great compliment to the home and mostly a welcome addition to the living room. Localised heating systems come in all different forms, from ones that require a heating oil tank to those that use coal and need coal bunkers instead.

Development of central heating systems

The development of the heating systems started after the second world war where new buildings were constructed with heating systems in place. These involved installation of a heating system such as a boiler that was powered by either coal or petroleum fuel such as diesel or gas. These systems heat and circulate hot water through pipes thus warming the internal atmosphere. Other systems operated by pumping hot air into the rooms. Both require varius amounts of pipes being installed within the home, many of these pipes where installed on the outsides of the walls, which led to many people burning them selfs. As power drills & drill accessories became more advanced drilling through walls become an easyer task and now these pipes run inside of the walls. These systems come in a wide range of applications with the current ones using a diesel boiler to boil water which is circulated throughout the building. Other areas use district heating systems whereby ultra heated stem generated by a central body is circulated to the residential houses. Another form of heating systems have been the solar powered heating systems utilizing the sun energy to heat water which is then circulated throughout the house and thereby warming the house.

Cooling systems

Apart from the need to warm the house, cooling and air conditioning of the home is also very important in order to maintain a comfortable internal environment. Various cooling and air conditioning systems have been developed which operate by a moderate refrigeration process whereby air from the room is passed through a cold surface which absorbs the heat from the air thus cooling it down. These cooling systems have advanced with time with the current systems being designed to cool the homes naturally without using air conditioner.

Localized home warming solutions
