Can Trench Heaters be used with a boiler?
Yes, trench heaters can be used with a boiler as a source of heat. In fact, most trench heating systems are designed to be connected to a boiler or other heating source, such as a heat pump or district heating system.
The boiler heats up water, which is then circulated through the trench heaters via a network of pipes. The hot water flows through the coils or fins of the trench heater, transferring heat to the surrounding air. This heated air is then circulated around the room by natural convection or a fan, providing a comfortable and efficient heating solution.
Trench heating systems can also be designed to work with other heating sources, such as electric heating elements or air-source heat pumps. The choice of heating source will depend on a variety of factors, including the specific heating needs of the building, the local climate, and the available energy sources.
