fully pumped central heating system

fully pumped central heating system
A central heating system that is similar to the traditional gravity hot water system but with both the domestic hot water and central heating both controlled on the same single pumped circuit from the boiler (hence the term "fully pumped system"). Such a system provides increased control over domestic hot water heating and quicker heating times which in turn leads to better system performance and increased efficiency.
