Direct heat and central heat
Some 22 million American homes have a direct- heating sustems a throwback to the era of fire places and potbellied stoves. The heating apparatus exudes warmth directly to the space where heating system is located. Electricity provides a particularly comfortable source of direct heating. Resistance wires, similar in principle to the elements in a toaster, run through baseboard heating units or may be strung inside walls, ceilings or floors; individual heating thermostats control the temperature in each room.
The great majority of homes, however, have central- heating systems. These heating systems are popular largely because they are more efficient and can be located in an out-of-the-way place, yet can heat the entire house. Central heating systems are made up of several distinct units:
HEAT PRODUCER. This may be an oil, gas or wood burner, an electric heater or a heat pump, alone or in combination.
HEAT EXCHANGER. This unit is called a furnace if it heats air, a boiler if it heats water or makes steam. The air, water or steam goes through passageways inside the exchanger that keep it separated from the combustion gases of the burner; the gases are expelled through a flue. Any of these heat exchangers can be hooked up to any of the several kinds of heat producers.
HEAT DISTRIBUTOR. There are three types, one for each type of exchanger. In a warm-air system, the air is drawn into the exchanger by a large fan (a blower) and sent through ducts to warm-air registers. In a hot-water system, water is forced through the exchanger by a pump (a circulator) and sent through pipes to convectors, a type of radiator. Steam rises under its own pressure from the exchanger, going through pipes to radiators.
CONTROLS. Most homes have one thermostat in, the living area to turn the heating plant on and off. But some achieve closer control with several, and a few installations sense out side temperature in order to respond more to weather changes.
The most common problem with central sustains is uneven heat: rooms nearest the heat producer get too hot, those farther away never get warm enough. Since tinkering with one part of a system may affect other parts, adjustments may take days or weeks; so this is primarily a job for the homeowner.
Steam systems are least amenable to adjustment, but the heat of individual radiators can be regulated by turning the dial on each air vent (page 323). If your vents are not adjustable, change them; they are not expensive.
