designer radiators that look the part. “For those who want form as well as function, the latest generation of lightweight aluminium radiators are perfectly suited to low temperature systems like heat pumps,” says Dean Chughtai at MHS Radiators. “The unique properties of aluminium allow an extremely efficient heat transfer rate to the room – plus it can be moulded into complex and beautiful shapes to create radiators with large surface areas. “Consequently they have high outputs comparable to the equivalent steel panels and are therefore available in striking designs without sacrificing any performance. This allows homeowners to demand radiators that are not just functional but also make a design statement in the room.” However the ideal partner to a heat pump is actually underfloor heating, says Adrian Troop, sales and marketing director at Nu-Heat Underfloor & Renewables. “Underfloor heating is the most efficient partner due to the low flow temperatures of heat pump systems,” he explains. “It also offers greater design freedom as it frees up the space taken up by radiators.” But the biggest advantage to underfloor heating may just be the one that can’t actually be seen. The human body is most comfortable when the head is a couple of degrees cooler than the feet. Or, to put it another way, if the feet are cold then this will give a general feeling of being cold. Underfloor heating satisfies this condition in a way that no other heating medium can. So it appears that installing underfloor heating with a renewable heat source is a decision made with your feet as well as your head. It also seems that this low carbon heating combination ticks all of the boxes of aesthetics, optimum comfort and cost savings – resulting in a very sustainable solution indeed.
