Extracted by deep drilling and after being processed the natural gas begins the journey to your home traversing long distances through gas highways made from steel and reliable polyethylene. In Bulgaria the natural gas is imported from Russia, which stores 70 % of natural gas supplies in the world. The natural gas isn't anything like the propane - butane. It contains 90 % methane, it has no colour, no smell and it is lighter than air. Its caloricity is 8 000 kCal and the gas appliances efficiency coefficient goes up to 96 %. The transportation and the use of the natural gas are under constant surveillance. At certain sections along the route of the natural gas there are automatic controllers and gates, which in case of emergency automatically cut off the gas supply chain. Even the gas appliances are equipped with the same safety devices. Before reaching the households the natural gas is odorized with a special substance. This is the way you will certainly smell it. This is the reason why the natural gas is called a modern fuel. It is clean, does not pollute the environment, does not emit noxious gases and even ozonize the atmosphere.

The heating is performed in two ways . One of them is performed through gas convectors which are separate heating bodies. The gas convectors are of two types - cast iron and aluminum, of which the first mentioned are preferred. The convector can be installed everywhere, but more often it is installed on the cold external walls or on cooler places in the house.

The gas convector has a separate feeding with natural gas and a separate programmer for adjustment. You choose on your own the temperature and the rest of the measurements which the appliance can maintain; it can start and stop automatically.
