Common components of a plumbing or using water-circulation include:

  • Gas supply lines (sometimes including a propane tank), oil tank and supply lines or district heating supply lines.
  • Boiler (or a heat exchanger for district heating) — heats water in a closed-water system.
  • Pump — circulates the water in the closed system.
  • Radiators — wall-mounted panels through which the heated water passes in order to release heat into rooms.

Engineers in the United Kingdom and in other parts of Europe commonly combine the needs of room heating with hot-water heating and storage. These systems occur less commonly in the USA. In this case, the heated water in a sealed system flows through a heat exchanger in a hot-water tank or hot-water cylinder where it heats water from the normal water supply before that water gets fed to hot-water outlets in the house. These outlets may service hot-water taps or appliances such as washing machines or dishwashers.
