Technically speaking radiators actually work by convection, rather than ‘radiating’ heat, but ignoring the science – most homes around our nation wouldn’t be warm without them.
How do Radiators work?
Radiators work by by having a flow and return pipe. Water flows in one end and returns to the heating source at the other end. As the hot water passes through the radiator the heat is emitted from the large panel surface.
The radiator can be controlled by either a on off valve or a thermostatic valve which opens and closes depending on the room temperature it is set to.
What are the benefits of using Radiators to heat your home?
- They come in all shapes and sizes – meaning we can find the correct radiator for a room size, or to fit a tight space.
- Easy to install in older properties
- Work with any heat source
- Can be electric or water filled
For a heating system to work efficiently it must be clean and treated with inhibitor. It makes no sense to have a highly efficient boiler, but a clogged up heating system. The boiler will struggle to pump the heat round and could reduce the life of the boiler dramatically as well as making the warranty void on your boiler.
Power Flush Included
When we install your new boiler we also will give your existing heating system a power flush. Clean, dirt free radiators and pipe work are essential for your new boiler to be able to work efficiently using the smallest amount of fuel possible.
If you don’t need a new boiler but want to improve the efficiency of your system we can offer you a full power flush and inhibitor treatment for your system. Contact us now for your free no obligation quote 01604 587456.
