Various branded and unbranded designer radiators in various finishes and styles.
Todayís designer radiator is a thing of beauty as well as a device to warm up your home. Here are some tips on choosing the best designer radiator for your home.
The first thing to consider is the existing decor of your home and how your new designer radiators will fit in terms of space and colour. Beauty depends on harmony so you'll need to find designer radiators that fit. You have to consider such matters as colour and the contours and space of your rooms. Fortunately with designer radiators, you have infinite choice of style and colour.
Then there's the matter of placement. If it's a first time installation, survey your home for optimum placement. Follow the standard guidelines for central heating installation. Heating engineers recommend that the optimum location for a designer radiator is in the coldest part of the room. Plus it should be installed on the external wall beneath the window. This warms up the cold air coming in. If you have an existing central heating system, you should try to maximise the use of existing pipe work. This avoids the expense and disruption of installing new pipes.
The next thing to consider is the material your new designer radiators are made of. Some options are stainless steel and aluminium. Both are extremely efficient heat conductors and both have very attractive finishes. However there are some differences. Aluminium is a super conductor. This makes it extremely responsive to your control. Your house warms up quickly when you turn on your central heating. It also cools down just as quickly when you turn it off. Stainless steel radiators retain heat a little longer. Both materials are easy to clean, you just need to wipe them down with warm water and detergent a few times a year.
However, the responsiveness of aluminium radiators combined with their low water content translates into excellent cost efficiency which means lower bills for you. What's more, aluminium radiators are very light and easy to install. This often means lower installation fees. Ultimately, the choice of material is yours. Each has its own benefits, but aluminium wins out for its blend of function, beauty and economy.
