Local heating refers to heat generation in a single place from a source of energy. Central heating involves heat generation to the whole interiors, be a building, a house or a commercial complex. This type of indoor heating system became well known after the World War II and has rapidly become a necessity in places where winters are chill and uncomfortable.
Heat, generated by a variety of energy sources, is routed through a common ductwork which opens into a room any indoors. In some heating systems, steam is channeled through pipes to spread the heat indoors. Some building use electricity for heat generation, while some use solar-powered heat sources. Heating systems, especially steam generation, can be fired by electricity, solar energy, natural resources such as gas, coal, or oil, or fossil fuels. Whatever be the source, there is a robust distribution system that spreads the heat to keep the room warm.
The recent trend is one of portable heaters, where the heating system can be moved from one place to another. Such a system is also useful in protected outdoors, where you can enjoy winter evenings minus the chill.
