Indications regarding various »church heating systems«

The term »church heating« encompasses most different systems, which are at times all but impossible to compare. Before considering which kind of system should be employed, it is wise to clarify what the future task of the system will be. The right church heating can only be found when the requirements are clear.

Every church heating is as individual as a tailor-made suit.

From our point of view a church heating must meet the following basic requirements:

  1. The inside temperature of the church must be increased reliably and punctually to the level demanded. This requires a heating power which can be calculated with the help of the building´s geometry, building physic and the demands of the user.

  2. The building and its equipment must be protected. Therefore the system should be able to maintain a certain basic temperature and to carry out a gradual increase of the temperature when higher temperatures are demanded.

  3. A heating system has to work economically. Due to the usually lower temperatures and the limited times of use church heating systems differ considerably from a heating used in residential buildings.

  4. The impact on the building´s structure must be limited to a minimum.


Not every system is apt to fulfill the various requirements of a church heating.
