Domestic Water Heating

Electric storage water heaters – is simple to use and reliable units, consisting of a tank and a heating element – petn. Tank capacity typically in the range 10-200 liters, the power of petn – 1,2-2,5 kW. For more information see Mitchel Resnick. Power Tan proportional to the volume of the tank. 10-15 liters in the tank is heated to 75? C for 30-40 minutes, a 200-liter – for 5-8 hours. The heating rate also depends on the temperature of incoming water. Water heater is equipped with a magnesium anode, counteracting rust in the inner tank, insulation between the inner tank and outer casing, necessary to save the achieved temperature, a thermostat, set the desired temperature, safety valve to remove excess water, formed during heating. Modifications – vertical and horizontal. Connection – via a simple socket ordinary apartment wiring.

Big win in the payment of the consumed electricity – when using storage water heaters during the grace of the night tariff. Electric instantaneous water heaters heat water passing through his body, which is heater – petn. Ten high power, so the heating of water takes place almost instantly. petn for single-phase power network – up to 12 kW for three phase – up to 27 kW. Can be considered a drawback by some, that such heaters, high efficiency, require special and separate wiring (preferably to the electrical panel, rather than, for example, electric stove in the kitchen) with a good ground. Another one of the requirements – high and stable pressure water system, because when there is insufficient cooling of petn can burn. Advantages – compact, switch at the beginning of the water pumping and instant supply of hot (50 C) water.

Leaving water temperature depends the degree of heating the water supplied. Gas storage water heaters differ from electric only energy use, and some of my features in the design. Common installation and configuration should be dealt with exclusively for Gas Service. Most likely have to drill the outer wall to install a coaxial flue. The advantages include the lack of electrical connections, economical, and the shortcomings – obligatory presence of a centralized gas supply to the place of operating the heater. Gas instantaneous water heaters (geysers) are fairly simple in design and operation – gas burner heats the copper exchanger, which passes through the water. They may be incorporated by hand – using a piezoelectric device ignition pilot burner, or automatically when the ignition occurs when opening draw-off tap. Are often provided two modes of operation of the gas column – an economical and forced. When choosing a gas "" definitely need to take into account its capacity. If hot water use simultaneously in several places (for example, in the bathroom and kitchen), we need a powerful unit (24 kW). At one point is enough water pumping unit average power (18-19 kW). Convenient alternative to ordinary gas burner – modulating burner automatically change because of the flame when the water flow. It retains the desired temperature of water output at any pressure surges and pressure in the water. Models of gas columns with burners, a few more expensive.

Built-In Appliances

In modern kitchens have long been popular with built-in appliances. Also growing in popularity are appliances that perform different functions. For example, split washer and dryer for two stand-alone unit or a refrigerator and freezer: Similarly, you can buy a separate fridge, separately – freezer with lots of shelves and boxes for freezing and storage products. The same trend touched and plates for cooking. As a rule, in a plate combine the two devices: the panel for cooking with gas or electric hobs and oven pancakes. At the moment, can be purchased separately hob and separate the same oven. Hobs divided into gas and electric. And also on the dependent and independent.

If the cooking surface can only be installed over an oven and shares with him the controls, it is called dependent. If the surface has autonomous control and can be embedded in any place – it is called independent. For example, consider an independent hob Bosch pkn 645 E. This electrical panel with four "pancakes" heating and a touch control type. Two of the four heating zones – Advanced, which is very convenient for heating the container with a wide surface. The working surface of the panel Bosch pkn 645 E is made of glass-ceramic, and the type of heating elements – the corrugated ribbon.

Ceramic Glass looks good on a modern kitchen and easy to clean than other materials. However, its cost higher. Glass ceramic hobs can be of different colors and even have drawings, application of which can be ordered separately. The disadvantages of glass-ceramics can be attributed a certain fragility – it can crack when hit cold water on a heated surface. As for dishes that can be used for cooking on an electric hob, then it should not be made of aluminum and, of course, unacceptable use of the dish with a convex bottom. If you're worried about the safety of young children who like to push different buttons and may inadvertently include plate, the hob Bosch pkn 645 E has built-in "Child Protection", which will block the inclusion of the panel in your absence. In Hob An indicator of residual heat and you can always see whether more heated "pancakes" or not. Dimensions are as follows: (WxD): 58h52, see Dimensions niches (WxD): 56h50 cm

Smart Homes

First, they provide protection from intrusion by surveillance cameras, automated doors, gates, roller shutters, security alarm. Secondly, the forgetful owners have virtually no chance of a fire – left by the iron, pliers, or oven, will be time off, and in case of any fire or smoke alarm works. -Leakage of water or gas system immediately notifies the owner and, and appropriate services. When the idea of 'smart' homes in its infancy, for most developers it was important to implement with the new system function of economic use of resources. And the current system with the brilliance of this task of coping. They control the flow of water, electricity and heat. This is achieved through maximum sustainable use.

For example, the system can be programmed so that the light will turn on when the room someone enters, and turns off again when it is empty. In the absence of hosts heating system can be switched off completely, and night work in the economy mode. Talking about the merits of automation systems, it is impossible not mention the new technical capabilities that are implemented to achieve a variety of purposes. We have already mentioned the system of 'Multiroom', which is responsible for distribution of audio and video signals from various sources several distinct zones. All the equipment, which is a source of audio and video (TV-tuner, radio, computer, IPod, dvd, etc.) is concentrated in one place, and through a special receiver signal output in any area. Such a system opens great opportunities for viewing movies, photos, listen to your favorite music or games.

Dialogue between 'smart' home and his master helps the Internet. From any computer connected to the Internet from anywhere in the world can learn about the condition of the house, watch cctv footage. If necessary, the video surveillance system can regularly send e-mail report on the condition of the house. 'Smart' homes in Russia yet a little, the market in our country is still emerging. However, experts are confident in the prospects of this direction. While this is mainly near Moscow cottages or luxury apartments in Moscow and St. Petersburg. However, there are low-budget projects that allow you to create certain types of systems with minimal funds. Having determined that the most important to you – comfort, entertainment, safety, or savings can be set in the house only the stuffing, which is necessary for this purpose. For example, perhaps the introduction of energy-efficient systems, or, if priority is entertainment system 'Multiroom'. So perhaps it's time acquainted with 'intelligent' technologies, and to us. Agree that 'little crazy' our homes just can not hurt.
