Sample text

Eventually, a point is reached where the water starts to boil, and some of it changes to the gaseous state. The liquid water temperature, and the water vapor that comes immediately off of it, is at 100ºC. As energy flows into the water, more and more of it evaporates. If energy continues to flow into the water once it has all become vapor, its temperature begins to increase again. Ultimately, the only limit to how hot the water vapor can become depends on how much energy the heating elements can deliver into it.

This optimizes the transfer of heat energy from the water or steam to the surrounding environment. If the structures are directly exposed to the air, they are called radiators. If they are embedded in the floor and/or walls, they are called coils. In a steam system, after heat energy has been lost to the air by means of the radiators, the vapor condenses and returns to the boiler as hot water. The boiler reboils the water and sends it on its way through the house again as steam. In a hotwater system, the water returns to the water heater at a lower temperature than that at which it left, and emerges from the heater ready for another round.

Is an ideal arrangement because it makes CO buildup impossible, no matter what else may happen in the system. d. should never be used, because it defeats the purpose of the system by drawing cold air into the house. CHAPTER 2 Heating with Oil and Gas 35 9. Hydrogen gas may eventually be used in place of methane for gas heating systems, provided that a. the helium-to-hydrogen conversion process can be perfected. b. hydrogen can be obtained in abundance at reasonable cost. c. a way can be found to burn hydrogen without producing CO gas.
