Heating Systems
Local Heating Systems
 Local systems provide
heat energy for only one
room or a small part of
a building
Central Heating Systems
 Central systems provide
heat energy from a
single location and is
transferred through the
building by pipes or
ducts
How is heat transferred
here?
How do we control our
heat?
 In our homes we
usually use a
thermostat to
control the
temperature
 Most thermostats
contain a
bimetallic strip
Bimetallic strip
This is a strip of metal
that contains 2 different
types of metal
One side will contract
and expand at a
different rate than the
other

explain to you where the heat comes from, how its
made, and how it is spread around the house.
Heat Project
 Individually you will choose a method of heating
homes from the list below ( if you know of one not
listed please check with me first)
 You will become an expert on this method and teach it
to the class.
 This means you must understand it! If you are
confused so will your classmates
 You may use powerpoint, poster, handouts ect. To
help you teach the class
Project Criteria
 You must

Explain where the heat comes from ( electricity, burning,
boiling etc.)

How it heats the home ( radiation from the floor, convection
from vents etc.)

What is needed in your home for it to work ( tanks, vents,
boilers, etc.)

Average cost in Saskatchewan ( make sure you are finding
local data, you can also ask family members if they use this
method) if not used locally explain why.

Provide pictures and diagrams to show how heat travels in
the house

Create a handout for the class with at least 5 question they
must answer
