heart of any autonomous heating system is a heating boiler.The main difference, according to which the boilers are classified in separate groups, is the type of fuel used.

Domestic gas heating boilers

Domestic gas heating boilers

The principle of operation of the boilers of different groups remains the same regardless of the model of the equipment and features of the fuel used.

The combustion of the loaded fuel boiler heats the water or other heat transfer fluid used in a particular autonomous heating system.Pipes also transfer heat to the batteries and the surrounding area.

The type of fuel used depends on the basic operational and technical characteristics of the heating boiler.They have a direct impact on durability, reliability and performance of the device.These same properties as determined by the ease of management of the heating system and the convenience of its use.

complexity of the installation of individual heating system is also largely depends on the characteristics of the boiler.You need to study the characteristics of the existing equipment and to choose a system that works best for your particular case.

Electric heating

Independent heating by electrical heating boiler has a number of advantages, among which it is imperative to note the following points:

  • reliability of the equipment;
  • relatively affordable cost of the boiler;
  • quiet and harmless work;
  • ability to mount and connect the equipment on their own.

    Electric heating

    Electric heating

Modern heating elements to be included in the design of heating boilers are more than 15-20 years.In addition, a modern heating equipment has a programmable operating mode and the main parameters of the system.

For example, the owner can program the boiler on and off at a certain time, which is very convenient.To implement this feature, apply air temperature sensors.

As a result, heating system, designed and equipped by electric heating boiler, will be able to operate without interference from the owner for weeks or even for months.It is this moment and defines the meaning of autonomy.

Full autonomous system must be capable of maintaining the temperature conditions at a certain level regardless of the weather outside.

However, electric heating has two major drawbacks, namely:

  • system requires a stable power supply, and it is not present in all settlements.electricity jumps and sudden shutdown can cause damage to the heating boiler out of action;
  • relatively high electricity tariffs.This moment often stops owners configured for arrangement of electrical heating, on the implementation of their ideas.

Gas heating

Gas heating

Gas heating

One of the most popular options.It provides the most efficient heating due to relatively low gas prices.Other significant advantages of such heating does not.

disadvantage of a lot more.

  • danger of equipment: the following points Among them deserve special attention
  • high cost of heating boilers;
  • need regular maintenance professionals.

In addition, with the installation of a gas boiler and arrangement on this basis a full independent heating can be overcome only with special skills.For the installation of the boiler is necessary to invite specialists, having obtained a number of approvals by the relevant authorities.

Gas heating

Gas heating

Yes, and gas lines is not conducted in all settlements.If there is no connectivity to the backbone of the independent heating by gas boiler and can not think.

Zhidkotoplivnyy heating

Condensation liquid fuel heating boiler

condensing liquid fuel

heating boiler Fuel oil boilers are categorically not suitable for permanent resettlement of independent heating.Restrictions imposed as a particularly direct heating equipment and fuel used.

Fuel oil boilers

Fuel oil boilers

also a number of significant drawbacks of these systems it is necessary to take them elektrozavisimost and fire.Therefore, liquid fuel heating system can be regarded exclusively as a backup source and temporary heat.

solid fuel heating

Solid fuel heating

solid fuel heating

One of the oldest and most common heating options.On the market today is a wide range of solid fuel boilers, suitable for arranging auxiliary heating.

The main advantage of this equipment is an economical operation due to the relatively low cost of energy.

Solid fuel heating

solid fuel heating

Among the shortcomings - the need for places for the storage of fuel and the need for constant monitoring and maintenance.

order of arrangement of the auxiliary heating

Regardless of the type of energy source arrangement order of the system remains the same.The differences are present only during the installation of the boiler itself.This point is clarified and addressed in a separate order.

beginners is best to give preference to electric boilers - such equipment is the most simple to connect and easy to use as possible.

In general, the following procedure as a stand-alone heating connection.

first step. Make or make circuit heating system for your particular home.

At this stage, calculate the optimal number of sections of heating radiators.To add the calculated margin of 15-20%.This reserve will ensure the highest possible efficiency of the radiators, which during its operation will inevitably become clogged, resulting in degradation of heat transfer.Additional sections of all rational place in the corner room of the house.

Standard calculation of radiators

much more accurately calculate the number of radiators will calculate a special calculator:

second step. Drill holes in the walls, in accordance with the plan.Hole dimensions must correspond to the diameter of the pipe to be passed through them.

third step. do the finishing of walls in places of fastening of the future batteries if necessary.Doing it after the installation of radiators will be uncomfortable.

also recommended to glue on the wall behind the radiator foil material.Thanks to him the heat is reflected into the room, and not to leave the room through the wall.

fourth step. ready to install elements of an autonomous heating system.Start with the boiler installation.Installing from the requirements that are relevant for your particular heating equipment.

From boiler lay the pipe in accordance with the scheme drawn up before heating and to the pipes connect radiators.Installation of radiators can be carried out in accordance with the serial or parallel circuit.A particular embodiment selected in accordance with the terms of your situation.

fifth step. Test collected independent heating system.Be sure to check the system for leaks.To perform such a check is necessary to piped water or other coolant is used.Problematic places will be noticeable almost immediately.Any defects found must be removed urgently.

If you can not cope with the solution of the problems detected by yourself, a qualified specialist - can not joke with heating.It is better from the start to do everything efficiently and correctly than to face serious problems in the further use of the system.

Remember drain outlet must be placed at the lowest point of the heating system, ie,at the bottom of the return.Only subject to this rule, the heating will work effectively and efficiently.

After the installation and removal of identified errors, if they were discovered, can be considered independent heating almost ready.At the end you will only further sealed the joints and various cracks.

System Maintenance Guidelines

Servicing boilers


boilers Provided competent arrangement, especially in the case of the installation of modern electric boiler, independent heating system will not require to him almost no attention.Lender will require only 1-2 times in half a year to top up the coolant system.

can be eliminated if desired and the said event, combining expenditure and expansion tanks into a single system.However, this can only be done with proper arrangement of heating.

Maintenance of gas boilers

service gas boilers

In addition, each year, before the heating season and after its completion it is necessary to check the system.Regular inspections allow time to identify all sorts of faults and errors made in the process of mounting the main elements of the heating system.

Follow the receipt of the recommendation, and a stand-alone heating your home is properly serve for many years.

Successful work!
