warm plinth - a completely new technology of domestic heating, which is based on the principle of convection.Europeans more than 20 years heat their homes this way, but in Russia this type of heaters come recently.What is so good warm plinth?How does it work?How much does this miracle and whether only one small unit to replace the entire heating system?Answers to these and other questions in this article.
warm plinth design ↑
Outside warm plinth is a metal box height of 14 cm and a width of 3 cm. It is installed directly on the wall instead of the usual plastic or wooden plinth.Inside the heater on special brackets attached heat exchanger heating unit, which consists of two copper pipes and impaled them on the brass lamellae.The inner diame
heating modules are interconnected by means of screws or by crimping copper soldering.In the corners of the heat exchangers are connected by special rotating tubes of polyethylene or copper.The coolant (water or electricity) is supplied to the warm plinth of the manifold via underwater pipes.
Manifold advisable to complete flowmeter, drain and shut-off valves, automatic air vent.It is also possible to provide a pressure gauge and a thermometer that would maintain control over the entire system and regulate its parameters.
classification state "warm plinth» ↑By way
Plinth heating system is divided into two types:
Water heating circuit ↑
From the name itself is already possible to conclude that the contours of the circulating fluid volume is 0.34 liters.per meter system.This can be both water and antifreeze.The liquid temperature can vary from 50 to 85 ° C.
adjust the temperature in the room can manually on the manifold or it occurs automatically.
Plinth, "eat" electricity ↑
warm plinth This option works on the electric heating element 200W per meter.All heating elements are connected together in parallel, and their mode of operation is controlled by the wall of the electromechanical or electronic thermostat with a built-in temperature sensor in the room.
The principle of warm plinth ↑
principle of operation of the heating system is based on special effects, when warm air rises slowly along the walls, giving them their heat.Outside (on the windows and walls) creates a "screen" that prevents the outflow of heat from the room, and the walls themselves emit energy that is transmitted to all objects in the room - furniture, fabrics, carpets, etc.
Thus, the room is heated twice - first from the plinth and the second - on items.As a result of such heat exposure is a uniform distribution of heat around the perimeter of the room and its height.None of the heater can not produce such an effect.
Pros devices and operating ↑
- This type heaters care about human health, because in addition to being warm plinthcreates a barrier to the cold air, warming the walls inside and out, it also frees them from excess moisture.In addition, the dust in the room, equipped with a heating system, there is little, or rather it is, but behaves "quieter water below the grass", because air circulation is very slow.
- Warm plinth can be used as the main heating system and, if necessary, for example, on the balcony, balcony or terrace, it can be supplemented by other heating devices.
- system is suitable for all types of boilers operating on different fuels.
- The special design of the heating module and connected via manifold temperature difference between flow and return line does not exceed 5 ° C, which is 4 times less than in conventional systems.It is due to this, and there is a substantial savings in fuel and energy costs.
- heat is distributed evenly around the apartment.
- Warm plinth not only saves your money, but also the space of your apartment, because he, unlike the radiator panels, takes up very little space.
- behind furniture and curtains, even those related to housing plinth, can not be afraid, because the system is completely safe.
- This type of heating equipment ideal for any room, because the color of the case may have a variety of shades, it is possible even imitation wood, marble and other textures.
- system is indispensable in rooms with high ceilings and lots of windows.No condensation on the glass, you will not notice.
Specifics mounting ↑
Installing the heating system "warm plinth" is divided into two stages.
The first step is the preparation of all findings to connect the plinth, made the layout of lead pipes from the collectors is supplied power cord.
second phase of work on the installation of warm plinth begins after a complete decoration.If the water system, the wizard makes installation of all elements of the plinth, a plug-in to the prepared terminals, conducting molding system, balancing circuits configures the automation system.The electric version first assembled all housing, then a specialist connects to the contours of the conclusions, makes all the necessary measurements isolation.Upon completion of these works, electricity supply is made and the thermostat setting.
Assortment and issue price ↑
Buy warm plinth - the price it may be quite different in different stores and salons - today is not difficult, much more difficult to understand the principle of calculating the cost of the system itself, and for its installation.
This heating system is a set consisting of a large number of components: aluminum profiles, heating elements, plastic caps, holders, brackets, connecting fittings, manifolds, underwater tubes, etc.At amounts of these components and hence the cost of the whole system, is affected by many factors: the size of the room and its geometry, heat loss, a desired color, the need for reservoirs, supply tube and other additional materials.All of these elements have their price, so to talk about a common value system "warm plinth" is not possible.
Perform all calculations, choose the required number of items and do it efficiently, professionally and without error, can only specialist, held a training course.
heating system "warm plinth" is definitely worth attention to the person, because such an innovative, stylish and ingenious inventions in the field of power system was not yet.
