Various design finds, the use of new architectural developments in the construction of buildings and the repair of premises impose special requirements on heating devices.
Significant glazing of residential and commercial facilities allows more light to enter the room, but together with it also receives cold air through the windows “to the floor”. Kermi convectors are designed to correct this shortcoming.
Water heating convectors: functions
- quickly heat the room to the required temperature;
- are a kind of "thermal curtains" , preventing the inflow of cold air from windows and doorways: entrance, balcony, terrace, etc.
Due to their compact size, water heating convectors are a good alternative to radiators in cases where the installation of the latter is impossible or does not fit into the design concept of the room.
Kermi heating convector for an ideal microclimate
Absolutely any room can be equipped with high-tech heating appliances if you purchase Kermi convectors.
A wide range of products includes products of various designs:
- steel floor and built-in copper-aluminum floor convectors;
- with side and bottom connection;
- equipped with customized valve fittings at the factory;
- working on the basis of natural convection, with an air supply or with an integrated turbocharger;
- equipped with a heat shield that prevents heat loss through the rear wall. < /ul>
Kermi convectors have a wide choice of sizes and colors, are equipped with decorative grilles and closing panels.
If you need a compact, reliable and efficient convection device, then a water heating convector will be the best choice.
WHAT IS CONVECTION And a CONVECTOR?
Since even experts do not always clearly understand the difference between radiators and convectors, since both are heating devices, it is worth devoting a few lines of theory and recalling a school physics course. Convection and radiation are types of heat transfer, with the help of which heating devices give off heat to the room, heat it.
If we put our hand to a cup of hot tea, we will feel heat without even touching it. This is thermal radiation, through which heated bodies give off heat to the surrounding space.
However, if we look closely at a cup of tea, we can notice that light steam rises above the cup. Steam is carried away by a stream of warm air, which heats up from contact with hot tea and rises. This is the convective method of heat transfer, or convection. Of course, most devices, especially radiators, give off heat both by convection and radiation, but depending on the predominance of one or another type of radiation, a heating device is called either a radiator or a convector. Convectors also have certain structural differences from radiators.
The surface of radiators is always hot, regardless of their design. In a convector, heating takes place inside the casing, which creates traction, while the surface of the casing itself does not heat up.
WHERE IS THE CONVECTOR USED?
Although convectors perform the same function as radiators, however, there are In situations where their use is more appropriate, they can provide more efficient space heating and provide significant energy and money savings. One of the advantages of the convector is the ability to quickly warm up the room. Due to the intensive heat exchange, the convector copes with this task much faster than the radiator. Therefore, in rooms where people are not permanently located, for example, in offices, living rooms, guest rooms, the convector will save energy if the temperature in the room is reduced to 15 degrees at night, while practically without loss of comfort, since in the morning the convector is very fast, for minutes, it will warm the room to the desired comfortable temperature.
But convectors have proven themselves most effectively in modern buildings, the architecture of which involves high windows, low window sills, or a complete absence of window sills, a large glazing area. Here, there is almost no alternative to the convector, since low window sills imply a small height of the device, and radiators with a height of less than 300 mm are practically not made, since they become ineffective. But convectors, the minimum height of which lies within 70 mm, are ideal for such premises, and, in addition to purely aesthetic, perform very important technical functions. The fact is that high windows should be intensively blown and warmed up in cold weather, otherwise condensation will fall on them, and freezing is possible at lower temperatures. A good example is the window of a car, which, without warm blowing in cold weather, instantly fogs up and & nbsp; freezes. Radiators, due to the fact that their main method of heat transfer is radiation, do not cope with this task or cope incompletely. Although it can be warm in a room with tall windows heated by radiators, the windows can fog up and even freeze at the same time. The convector, by forming an intense flow of warm air upwards, creates a kind of thermal curtain that shields the flow of warm air from the window and ensures proper glass heating, preventing the formation of condensate and freezing of ice.
