Process of Installing Gas Infrared Heaters

The gas supply is from the cylinders of various sizes. The problem may consist in the fact that not every room can get permission to use gas appliances. No doubt the process of installing gas infrared heaters is much easier than creating heat networks. But we should go out and how much is available for you to delivery and storage of gas. Holmes quartz heater are already used successfully for years, but widespread in comparison with other devices, intended for heating, has not yet been received. Most use infrared heaters used in industrial premises, supermarkets, offices. But gradually they come into the niche of domestic heaters, mostly in country houses and cottages. Constrains their distribution higher price than the same oil radiators and convectors.
The energy source of infrared heaters can be either mains or LPG.Gas infrared heaters designed for heating large spaces, so they are unlikely to be useful in a normal apartment. Most likely they will appreciate the owners of cottages and country houses, because the power produced to date models of gas infrared heaters only starts from 1.5 kW. In addition to the power cost when choosing to pay attention to the type of heating (direct and indirect). In the direct type of heating the air required for the burner comes from the heated space, and the products of combustion go back into the room. Therefore, when installing gas heaters with direct heating of the room must be equipped with an efficient ventilation system. Indirect heating system is provided in the heater outlet gas, but it requires skill to install.Plus, gas infrared heaters use provides independence from the mains.
The recommended distance is largely dependent on the capacity of the heater. For power 700-800 Tues permissible location of the unit at a distance of 0.7 meters. If the boundaries of the heater power are in the range 1-1.5 kW, it is recommended to keep away from him at least a meter. The subtlety is that the distance is measured from the surface of the infrared heater to the human head. Therefore, if the radiator with a heating power of 700 W is possible to install almost anywhere in the home or office space with a ceiling height of 2.5 m, with a capacity of twice the installation must be properly thought through. This may be a point on the workplace in the office or over the bed in the bedroom.

Build a Fireplace with Hands

You have decided to build a fireplace with his hands. First, define a desired dimensions. They will depend on the ratio of surface to volume of space. Necessary to accurately determine the size of a fireplace flue openings. If it is small, the ratio of height to width should relate as 2:3. The ratio between the height and depth of the portal burner must be either 1:2 or 2:3. This ratio must be strictly observed, because the more depth, the less heat into the room, and will cause less smoke. The diameter of the chimney fire depends on the area of ​​the furnace. It should be 10 - 15 times smaller. The room in which you decide to build a Monessen fireplace must be ventilated and be equipped with a chimney to remove combustion products.

The materials can be used very different: natural stone, metal, concrete, brick, block stone. From material selection will depend on the shape and quality of the fireplace.

To do this, the clay is soaked in water beforehand, and from time to time, stirred by preventing thickening of the material. Added fine sand 1mm in diameter. Clay solution should be high fat content. Low fat does not clutch a strong and very fat gives more shrinkage. The first row of bricks spread the cement with the addition of clay to a finished solution.

Be sure to follow, so that rows were horizontal, vertical angles, and geometric dimensions of the right. Each brick before laying dipped in a bucket of water for 2 - 3 minutes. As a result, they stand out is in the air, thereby laying the fortress rise.

But the firebox and smoke box made without the use of tools, smoothing and equal to the solution at hand. The inner walls of smoke box, channels, and a fireplace firebox to be wiped to remove the solution, which was made - he can sprinkle in the furnace. The surface of the inside is not plastered. The curved surface of the roof and smoke box are laid out by gradually vent bricks. To tilt the back wall was crooked, to align it with the steel use the invoice screen, stuffy inside.

Portal to put a fireplace brick fireplace reimplemented different types of bridges: arched arched, etc. From the opening rain to close the outlet pipe. For this purpose, suitable curly smoke hole of the plate, although the best fit brick and a flat cap made of corrugated iron.
