When building or renovating your home with an electricity-heating system, it is inevitable to ask yourself several questions: "Which heating system works best to suit my needs? Among the available options, which one will weigh less on the bill? And how can I get a good level of thermal comfort? "
First of all, you need to understand the differences between the various electric heating appliances, in order to understand what advantages each of them can offer and which is the most suitable for your needs.
Let's start with a simple question: what is heat?
Heat is an energy transfer and its modes of diffusion are basically three:
1 - Heat conduction: the heat is transmitted through the contact between two bodies (eg heat that is transmitted from the tip of a turned on poker to its handle).
2 - Thermal convection: it is the natural phenomenon whereby a hot fluid tends to rise and a cold fluid to go down, so the air heated by the radiator rises while the cold air comes down to the ground (eg the water in a kettle is heated evenly, even if it is in contact with the stove only inferiorly).
3 - Irradiation: contactless propagation of thermal energy in the form of electromagnetic waves (eg the warmth emitted by a stove that spreads throughout the environment).
