Electric resistance heating is 100% energy efficient and converts all electrical energy to heat. And on the other hand, electricity generated from coal, gas, or petroleum generators convert only around 30% of the fuel energy in electricity. But bear in mind that due to electricity generation and transmission losses, electrical heat is frequently less affordable than heat generated in houses or businesses which use combustion appliances, like natural gas, gas, and oil stoves. Electrical resistance heat can be provided by centralized forced air furnaces or by drains in each area. Resistant heaters include electric baseboard heaters, electric wall heaters, radiant electric heat, or space heaters.
Types of electrical resistance heaters
It’s also possible to use electrical, thermal storage systems to prevent heating during periods of peak power demand. Electrical resistance heat can be provided by centralized forced air furnaces or by drains in each area. Heaters consist of electric furnaces, electric baseboard heaters, and wall heaters.
Electric Furnaces: Electric furnaces are a choice that is more expensive than other electrical resistance systems because of their duct heat losses and the necessity of additional energy to distribute the heated air through your home. Air is delivered through the house through distribution channels and returned to the furnace via return ducts.
Blowers in furnaces move air in a group of three to seven resistance coils elements, each of which is generally rated at five kilowatts. The furnace’s heating components activate in phases to prevent overloading the home’s electric system. An integrated thermostat prevents overheating.
Electric Baseboard Heaters: Electric baseboard heaters are zonal heaters controlled by thermostats found within every room. Baseboard heaters contain electrical heating elements, enclosed in metal pipes. The pipes, encompassed by aluminum fins to aid heat transfer, run the duration of the baseboard heater housing, or cupboard. As atmosphere inside the heater is heated, rises in the room, and the cooler air is pushed to the bottom of the heater.
Electric wall heaters: Electric wall heaters consist of an element with a reflector behind it to reflect the heat in the room and usually a fan to move the air throughout the heater. They’re generally installed on the interior walls as install them within an outside wall makes that wall hard to insulate.
