Central heating for the whole house

On this site we use the term central heating to mean a heating system designed for heating the whole house. That being clear, you can still choose from:

Combustion heating:  wood, oil or gas? These types of heating systems are renowned for their reliability and efficiency, although installation can involve a lot of work. The choice of wood as fuel is more environmentally friendly.

Electric heating: simply connect each heating unit to the mains electricity supply.

Renewable heating (ENR): there are two major types of ENR - heat pumps and solar. With solar, it is normally supplemented by an additional heater.

Mixed dual energy: Bi-energy is a combination of heating methods (conventional + renewable energy). Different combinations are available: wood + gas heating, heat pump + solar + conventional heating, etc.

Central heating may also be provided by heating systems which are often ignored:

boiler stove offers the combined advantages of a wood stove and a boiler which is connected to your water heating system.

fireplace can be fitted with a heat disperser or heat recovery apparatus and also serve as central heating throughout your home.
