What is the most economical radiator?

What is the most economical radiator?

Aluminium Radiators – The Kings of Efficiency Aluminium is an excellent conductor of heat which means, when used as a radiator material, it’s heats up to the desired room temperature very quickly. This means that less energy is used in bringing the material up to temperature when compared with other radiator metals.

What is the thinnest radiator you can get?

With a single grooved front panel, this 300(H)mm x 400(W)mm radiator is the smallest in the range. It provides a very useful size for fitting into tight spaces, like an ensuite or downstairs toilet.

Which are better vertical or horizontal radiators?

Are vertical designer radiators better than horizontal ones? Although horizontal designer radiators might have the overall edge when it comes to efficiency, in the design stakes, vertical radiators win hands down.

Are aluminium radiators cheaper to run?

In summary, aluminium radiators will cost you more to buy and the choice of colours and design can be seen as limited. Despite the drawbacks, they are a more environmentally friendly radiator and are less expensive to run saving you money in the long run.

Can you put a radiator anywhere?

If you go for a plug-in electric wall radiator you can hang it wherever you have a plug socket. This should be easy enough to do yourself.

Are tall radiators less efficient?

Upright radiators are in fact just as efficient as horizontal radiators and their tall, narrow design allows them to be placed in areas which would otherwise be unused.

Is it OK for curtains to touch radiator?

Curtains can catch fire from electric radiators if the radiator is close to a curtain made of flammable material. Water radiators usually don’t get hot enough to cause curtains to catch fire, but the radiator could still burn any fragile materials nearby.

Is radiator foil effective?

Putting kitchen foil behind the radiator is a false economy, as its effectiveness will be severely limited by these effects over time. Homemade foil radiator reflectors crinkle easily and oxidise, losing their reflective qualities.

Should radiators be hot to the touch?

Are hot radiators unsafe? There’s radiators that get hot enough to adequately heat the room and then there’s radiators that are too hot to touch and pumping out far too much heat. If your radiators are too hot to the touch then this is of concern, especially if you have young children.

What does P+ mean in radiators?

P+ also known as Type 21, is a type of radiator with 2 radiator panels and 1 set of convection fins. K2 also known as Type 22, is a type of radiator with 2 radiator panels and 2 sets of convection fins. K3 also known as Type 33, is a type of radiator with 3 radiator panels and 3 sets of convection fins.

Are column radiators better than panel radiators?

In summary, column radiators are an energy efficient way of heating your home. Although panel radiators remain a popular option in many homes, steel column radiators are far more efficient because they have a larger surface area and can heat the air around them much more effectively than a panel radiator can.
