HEATING ALPHABET

Distinguish alleged savings of heat energy from highest possibile savings
connected unique heat comfort!

Optimizing heating process.
 
Heating comes In three phases: heat generation, (possibly) heat storage and heat distribution. The goal is heating comfort, which is desired room temperature. It needs to be noted, that mantaining constant temperature does not mean heat comfort and proper saving of generated energy.  
 
Let’s look  closely at each phase,  because you can optimally generate heat, but inefficiently store it, and distribute it. At each stage, unnecessary loses might occur, sometimes very significant.
Most users and plumbers, concentrate on optimizing heat source (boiler, heat pump), neglecting it’s optimal distribution. As a result, this efficiently produced heat in the next step of heating , is wasted in great manner. Optimal heat generation is not about boiler working long and without control, but about working with maximum efficiency. Generated heat might go straight to radiators or some of it might be stored. Heat storage is required especially when heat generation happens when its not needed and when its in surplus. 
 
Cardinal rules of optimal heat installation functioning:
  1. Maximal ammount of generated heat should be used for heating In the right time. (Too little heat is bad, but too much or in the wrong time is also bad.) 
  2. Heat shouldn’t be produced if it is produced in excess, unless the surplus is storaged in buffer unit. (You usually don’t produce goods directly to store, by analogy this applies to heat generation – heat distribution)
  3. Heat should be distributed when its needed with the amount that’s needed. (This condition will not be met by having solely floor heating) 
  4. Radiators are not for buffering excess heat, and protect it from overheating, but are for providing as much heat as we currently need.
  5. With today’s technology of building energy-saving and smaller house, nothing stands In the way of combining radiators with floor heating in one circulation with the same temperature  (look for: hybrid heat distribution).
  6. Optimal central heating installation should be configured in a way, that after reaching desired temperature in the room or with appearance of significant heat gains or with no heating needs, heat generation could be completely stopped, or significantly reduced. 

Efficient and comfortable, whole year, elastic house heating is not possible without radiators – heat distributors with minimal thermal inertia.
