HEATING, VENTILATION & SERVICES


majority of them are partnered with radiators, in some cases shared with underfloor heating. Radiators are a key component of most heating systems in the UK – around 90 per cent of all heating systems are partnered with radiators. In recent years radiators have improved in efficiency and design with better designed water channels, and new ways of reducing the water content required to flow through radiators while increasing the amount of metal that comes into contact with that heated water to share more heat more efficiently around the home.


With the advent of renewable heating systems, we are seeing the need for larger radiators and for higher capacity radiators – such as a rise in sales of K3 radiators. These have three panels and three sets of fins, allowing for 50 per cent more metal surface area to warm the air than a standard K2 double panel radiator, without increasing the wall footprint. We are also seeing the sales of larger radiators which is not surprising, as radiators today are increasingly seen as part of the decor – not simply an appliance. A huge range of different styles and designs are available – such as designer radiators and premium panel radiators – to blend in perfectly with decor. You can get up to 36 different colours to match or contrast your colour schemes – no longer ‘any colour so long as it’s white’!


KEEPING UP WITH HEATING TRENDS Over the past couple of decades the race for more efficient heating systems has been paramount in the heating industry, with the arrival first of combi boilers and then of condensing, modulating boilers, followed by the development of far better heating controls, energy efficient pumps and a wider range of more effective radiators. The development of lower temperature heating systems,


utilising renewable heating has given us another challenge, but it’s one the industry has risen to and are able to respond to effectively. Radiators are all compatible with all heating systems – traditional and renewable – when sized correctly. In the area of renewable heating systems, radiators have developed to offer the compatible solutions that people will feel comfortable with. In terms of styles, there are a much wider range of vertical radiators available, adding to the huge number of new designs and sizes, and helping to provide the larger radiators needed by the renewable heating options. Vertical radiators, with a much reduced horizontal footprint, can slot into smaller wall areas in a room, to provide the levels of heat required without taking up large wall areas that can cause confrontation with furniture in the rooms.


Much thought has gone into the latest radiator developments and it’s all to ensure that the radiators available are ‘fit for the future’ – able to continue providing the levels of heat required in homes in the UK to keep everyone comfortable.
