Before undertaking the study of our heating we must consider several aspects of the project. Among them are what we call passive measures and, on the other hand, active measures.
Passive measures in a new house project: the thermos
What do we mean by passive measures? They correspond to the particular characteristics of the dwelling under study. Among them we can indicate the correct orientation of the house, its design, the isolation, etc. That is, those measures that do not require direct energy consumption.
Active measures: the coffee maker
And which ones do you activate? When passive measures are not enough, the house needs to "generate heat". That is, they are the measures related to the necessary energy consumption. And this section includes, among others, heating.
A clear way to understand the above is to think about the easiest way to keep a coffee hot: by a thermos or through a coffee maker.
A thermos keeps the coffee hot (our home) preventing it from getting cold, that is, isolating it from the outside, but without consuming energy. It is then a passive system.
A coffee maker, however, does not have insulation, but it does, through a minimum consumption of electricity (electric radiant foil) is able to maintain the temperature of the coffee by heating it stably at the same temperature. In this case the system is active.
It seems logical to think that the ideal system is somewhere between the two, that is, one that prevents the coffee from cooling by isolating it from the outside but that can use a heating system when the outside temperature is so low that insulating is not enough. .
This is the basic approach to which we opted. Consume only what we really need through a radiant heating system, clean and energy efficient, controlled as efficiently as possible by chronothermostats Room regulation WiFi.
