What is Central Heating?

Central heating is a method of whole-home heating in which warm water circulates through a closed network of pipes, carrying heat around the home. The heat source warms the water circulated through the pipes that lead to radiators or to the pipes laid in the floor for underfloor heating. The diagram below shows some of the main components of a central heating system.
