Heating of a house, a summer residence, a country house

Each owner of a summer residence, a country house, wants so that in his place of rest from the city bustle there is effective and economical heating. There are many heating systems on the Ukrainian market, from furnaces to super-technological electric boilers. However, our opinion is that all these systems have certain disadvantages.

For example, what to do if you are rarely in the country?

1. to heat a country house or a country house in the absence of owners by boilers is unprofitable, and to put it mildly unsafe! No one is safe from the possibility of leakage of water from pipes and batteries. If, for some reason, the boiler shuts down, then upon arrival the owners will not only have a cold resting place, but also a complete overhaul from frozen and broken pipes.

2. Ovens? Perhaps this is a worthwhile option, but, in this case, you should always take care of the availability of fuel and monitor its constant presence in the furnace. In addition, lovers of sound sleep will clearly not like this option due to the fact that in the middle of the night you will have to disturb your sleep in order to maintain burning. It is also necessary to clean the pipelines annually and make sure that they do not burn out. In addition, if children will run around in your house, you will always have to make sure that they do not get close to the stove, or enclose it.

  • IR heaters do not emit combustion products and unpleasant odors;
  • Devices do not dry air and do not burn oxygen. Accordingly, such heating will be more pleasant compared to convection;
  •  For installation of ceiling infrared heaters does not require floor and wall area. Heaters are mounted on the ceiling;
  • IR heaters have an efficiency above 90%. Provided that a temperature regulator is connected to it, the system turns into fully automatic and turns on only when the temperature drops below the necessary;
  • Infrared heaters can be used not only for heating enclosed spaces, but also for local heating of open areas, such as arbors, verandas, etc.
