Christmas is the festival of gifts and laughter. It is the day to celebrate and rejoice. It falls in December which indicates that we have many long stays in days with hailstones and snow splattering our window panes. With a cup of hot chocolate and a good novel, our day turns magical. The only thing that could possibly go wrong is the heating system. With the snow covering every surface, there is a possibility of electrical wires breaking or disconnecting. The heater in our homes stops working. Our once magical night turns bleak and we huddle together for warmth under a mountain of blankets. So, installation of a good electric heating system helps us through our hard times.
The basics of electric heating
Electric heating is the phenomenon of production of heat through electricity. Energy is converted from one form to another. It is used for many applications like cooking, room heating, cloth pressing, bread toasting, and water heaters. Since the electric heating does not produce any exhaust gases, it is mostly eco-friendly and is the safest form of energy conversion. In industrial applications, it is used for insulator baking, melting metals, purification of metals, moulding glasses and the cost of conversion to heat energy is comparatively lower.
The advantages and types
There are many methods of electric heating such as high-frequency heating, direct induction heating, dielectric heating, radiant heating, arc heating, etc. This type of energy conversion is mostly controlled and the cost of furnace required to do the conversion is also relatively cheaper compared to others. The electric switchgear system can overlook the current input without giving the system excess current.
Electric heating is one of the most common ways of energy we use in our homes.
