We've explained a little of the basics of the most common heating systems below.
Warm-water radiator central heating is a fast and effective way to heat your home quickly. These systems allow you to individually control the temperature of each room in your home. Radiators heat from a lower level, meaning that the objects around them feel the warmth sooner, as opposed to convection heaters that heat the air, which immediately rises to the ceiling, then layers down until the heat reaches your level. In addition, a natural convection effect occurs with heating radiators. This means that you’ll not only enjoy the benefits of radiant heat, but you’ll also get a double shot of heat from naturally occurring convection heat.
If you are looking for the ultimate in home comfort, a warm-water in-floor central heating system is the best heating option for you. These systems consistently deliver heat throughout your whole home and warm you from the feet up. Radiant heat warms objects directly without heating the surrounding air, thus avoiding the dry air associated with other types of central heating.
