Main types of heating used
Description

The main types of heating used measures the types of heating that are usually used to heat an occupied private dwelling. It indicates the appliances used and – in most cases – the fuels used (for example, a heat pump, fixed gas heater, or wood burner). Any types of heating that are only used very rarely or are available but not used are excluded. Insulation is not a heating type.
