Household Heaters

Scrappy’s buys all household heaters.

Most households depend on a central furnace to provide heat. A furnace works by blowing heated air through ducts that deliver the warm air to rooms throughout the house via air registers or grills. This type of heating system is called a ducted warm-air or forced warm-air distribution system. Electricity, natural gas, or fuel oil can power household space heating. Other types of heating include:

  • Gas-Fired Space Heaters
  • Electric Space Heaters
  • Wood-Burning and Pellet Stoves
  • Fireplaces
  • Radiators

Household heaters are fully recyclable. It requires extreme heat to warm the air in a large space, and metal is used in construction because of its resistance to heat. Recyclable metals and alloys are found in frames, fans, engines, panels and duct construction.

Hot water heating

A hot-water radiator comprises a sealed hollow metal container filled with hot water by gravity feed, a pressure pump, or convection. As it gives out heat, the hot water cools and sinks to the bottom of the radiator and is forced out of a pipe at the other end. Anti-hammer devices are often installed to prevent or minimize knocking in hot water radiator pipes.

Traditional cast iron radiators with hot-water baseboards are no longer common in new construction, replaced mostly with forced hot water baseboard style radiators. They comprise copper pipes which have aluminium fins to increase their surface area. These conduction boiler systems use conduction to transfer heat from the water into the metal radiators or convectors. All these parts can be recycled at Scrappy’s.
