“How can we heat spaces using gas?”
With space heating, we can keep our buildings at a warm temperature no matter the weather outside. However, what is one way that we can implement this? Well, let’s use our engineering mindset to find out. We know that processes in nature can raise their temperature using convection. So why don’t we just imitate this and use convection heating? To do this, let’s take some air, and channel it across a heating element to warm it up, and then mix it into a local space. This method is widely used across buildings worldwide.
