  • Without the use of multi-tariff meters and other devices, saves energy, the system will cost you much more expensive than the alternatives.

As we have said, at the time of connectionelectric heating in the wooden house must adhere to several important requirements, namely:

  2. If you choose to use radiators, installing them in a wooden house also features.Over time, the wood shrinkage occurs.If you do not provide in house design special joints in the pipework during shrinkage heating pipe can be broken and damaged.
  3. power cable, which will be powered by an electric boiler (or boiler) with a stock must withstand the current loads.Otherwise, the inflammation can occur by self-ignition wiring.To avoid this, make a cable cross-section calculation power.
  4. When using UFO, place them in such a way as to prevent the direct (or very close) contact of the heating element with other objects.

Options heating systems

We can not say what heaters can be used for central heating in the wooden house with his own hands.Let us consider in detail the most effective and familiar options for all.

  1. use of water heating, where heating is electric boiler.Option is the most popular, but not the best performance.The disadvantage is that still have to be mounted pipe tubes, especially as you have seen in the diagram, the battery heated room is not very effective (warm air rises).Water heaters
  2. use boiler for heating.You'd be surprised, but such a system is also popular and has proven itself very well, judging by the reviews its owners.The main demand - the heating system should be simple, and a small area of ​​the room.Incidentally, in this case, the storage-type boiler, rather than flow.Boiler
  3. Connecting infrared heaters wall and ceiling types.This option is electrical heating of the wooden house more efficient confirmation of this was a picture, which clearly shows that the warm air is directed from the top down, thus warming the entire room completely.In addition, in this case, the installation work is minimized, because all kinds of pipes and radiators will be absent.Using infrared heaters
  4. installation of "warm floor".This system is an innovation in the world of electric heating.Underfloor heating is quite effective, economical, and most importantly - safe in operation.The only drawback - the complexity of the work to install, but still end justifies the means.Warm floor
  5. use oil radiators.It can be used as a fallback or auxiliary.The use of oil radiators as the main heating too hard hit to your wallet, becausefor the whole of the wooden house will require not less than 1 pc. / room, and the price for electricity is quite high today.Oil radiator

First correctly calculate the capacity of the equipment.It is believed that for 1 m3 insulated premises sufficient heating power of 30 watts (non-heated to 41 W).This calculation is simplified for better calculation is recommended to use special formulas and programs that can be easily found on the Internet.

Next, make sure that all heaters have temperature control.This device allows to set optimum temperature in the room.As a result, electric heating wooden house is not so expensive.

Another important piece of advice - buy a two-tariff electricity meter, its advantages we talked about in the article, which referred to.

And finally, it would be desirable to note - make sure that the house was insulated with high quality.All cracks under windows, and gaps in the doorway should be repaired.The tree itself is the heat capacity of the material, so the quality insulated building will allow at least 2 times to reduce power consumption.
