With central heating still baffling many homeowners, some still don’t know the very basics of their central heating system. It is fair to say that some do take it for granted that they have heat on demand. The thing is, there is actually a lot more to central heating than you know about. I could tell you everything there is to know about central heating in this article, but that may take some time, so for now we’ll go back to basics.

Boilers

If you have central heating in your home then you will also have a boiler. Some homeowners are used to the old style boilers which are basic in comparison to the combi boilers of today, which heat the home as well as the water. Combi boilers are great because they are the modern alternative to the old and slow boilers of yesteryear. Many homes these days have combi boilers, largely because they are safer, more cost-effective and last longer.

Radiators

You will find that the radiators play an integral part in keeping your home warm. You don’t appreciate the warmth of entering a room, but you would certainly know about it if you didn’t have radiators. They can also be used as a good guide for when a fault has occurred within the central heating system. Just check if the radiator heats up properly when the heating is turned on – if it doesn’t then you know something could be wrong. It could be with the boiler or it could be that particular radiator.

Central Heating System

Remember that the term ‘central heating system’ applies to the boiler and radiators. In addition to this though, someone can refer to the central heating system when they are talking about putting the thermostat on.

Now you’re a pro on all things central heating related, why not do some research and find out more intricate details? You will feel enlightened.
