Modern radiators have a much greater ability to give out heat than older ones.
The new designs and differences in manufacturing process mean that a much smaller radiator will give out much more heat than before.
Radiators heat in two ways, firstly by sending heat out horizontally, which we call radiating, and secondly by convection, the heat which naturally rises away from something hot.
Did you know that 90% of heat coming from a radiator is actually convecting and not radiating!
Thermostatic Radiator Valves or ‘TRV’s have a temperature sensor in them that allow the valve to close automatically when they sense the air nearby has reached the desired temperature.
They can normally be set to five or six different levels, giving the consumer far greater control of the temperatures within every room in the house, AND saving fuel and money!
An older system can make substantial savings by exploring this route.
As a requirement of Part L of the Building Regulations, they are required in all new builds and almost all heating upgrades. They are a proven form of energy efficiency and fuel saving, which is great news!
