Forced circulation through loop pipework only Central Heating – One pipe system Central Heating – Types of systems (Part 1) - One pipe system
Circulation through radiator is forced Central Heating – Types of systems (Part 1) - Two pipe system
No independent temp control of HW on gravity system Central Heating - Semi gravity system Open vent Cold Feed Cold Feed to Cylinder Gravity primary pipework Pumped Heating pipework Anti gravity valve (page 6)
Central Heating Building regulations Approved Document L Approved Document L covers central heating Why do we need legislation for central heating ? To help combat global warming.. but what is the cause of global warming? It is CO² being released in to the atmosphere The Government is committed to reducing the amount of CO² we release in to the atmosphere each year. Share of CO² Emissions for 2000
Central Heating Building regulations Approved Document L What does this document set out to then ? … it makes many changes to the way buildings are built but the ones that concern us as plumbers the most are : Replacement of heating systems (including boilers and hot water storage cylinders). Heating and hot water controls Commission of heating systems and the provision of instructions for users.
