When you first hear the word energy, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Some force that binds all the objects in the universe with each other! Yes energy can be defined as the capacity to do work. We need energy for doing all the activities. As human beings we get energy through the nutritious food that we eat. Similarly, non- living appliances around us such as electrical instruments, cars, vehicles and other objects also require energy for their day to day functioning. So from so these objects derive their energy? These objects need different forms of energy such as electrical, fuel or mechanical energy for their normal functioning.
Traditionally there are two forms of energy- renewable sources of energy and non- renewable sources of energy. Renewable sources of energy are those which do not extinguish and can be used again and again for many years. On the contrary, non- renewable energy is that which takes millions of years to form and comes with an expiry date, i.e. over a period of time due to continuous usage they tend to get exhausted. Today although we have progressed by leaps and bounds there is an urgent need to conserve energy in order to prevent it for the generations to come. Man has now started to look for alternate forms of energy with the help of renewable sources. One of the major necessities of mankind is electricity and there are various non- conventional methods of generating electricity rather than being dependent on conventional source of energy. Electricity can be generated using various forms of energy such as wind, water and solar.
Solar energy is the most widely used forms of energy. And that’s where energy efficient heaters come into play. These heaters utilize solar energy which is converted into heat and electricity by photovoltaic cells that can be used to fulfil all the electrical needs of a domestic household. For getting the maximum output, the device should be installed on a terrace or open area that receives maximum sunlight. The electricity hence obtained can be evenly distributed using heatstrip heaters that are suitable for tough indoor as well as outdoor heating application. It has a special quality of penetrating through the air to provide comfortable and even temperature. The method through which the even distribution of heat takes place is known as heating system distributor which ensures that no area gets too cold or too warm.
Heating system distributors use a special component known as thermofilm which is also responsible for saving maximum electricity as it evenly distributes over the entire surface. Thermofilm is independent of temperature element and does not get corroded with repeated usage. Hence all these factors together ensure a balanced floor heating in the form of central heating for maintaining the desired levels of indoor climate for thermal comfort. Energy efficient heaters are a great way to utilize optimum energy and it also reduces electricity bills thereby making it a favourable source of energy.
