The heater or the channel heater represents part of vent system which function consists in heating or cooling of air during its passing on ventilating ducts. The efficiency of ventilation of the room will depend on right choice of heater in many respects and also that, will be how rational to be used the energy used for heating.


1. Define for what purpose you need heater. In general such devices are conditionally subdivided into heaters and coolers of air. By operation principle the heaters of air are divided into electric, steam or water. Air coolers usually use the cooled freon or water.

2. When choosing heater for heating of industrial premises find out whether there is at the enterprise device generating steam. If such system is available, stop the choice on the steam heater. Industrial premises at the enterprises, as a rule, is initially equipped with the steam lines capable to continuously give steam to heater.

The water heater in certain cases can be connected directly to heating services.

6. Quite often also devices, function which is not heating, but cooling of indoor air are required. There are two main types of such devices: one uses the cooled freon, another works as the water cooler of air. For regions with hot climate choose the cooler on freon, capable to lower air temperature by 20 and more degrees. For temperate climate will be to get water heater quite enough.
