To help you select the most appropriate heating system, we propose the following classification of country houses and cottages: Type A – one-story house with a basement and without a steep roof; Type B – single-storey houses with flat roof to the basement or no basement; type B – two or more storied houses with a flat or a steep roof and a cellar.

Heating systems with horizontal can not be heated attic space with a steeply dipping roof. Hot-water heating system such homes with a basement or without desirable to perform two-pipe with a natural circulation from the top or bottom wiring. When installing the boiler in the basement of the chimney height must be at least 10 meters in houses without a basement boiler is installed on the first floor, and the system should only be wired from the top.
For Type B homes with a basement should be applied hot water heating system with horizontal. The boiler is preferably set in the basement.
