The Best Column Radiators | Part 3

The Best Column Radiators | Part 3

Orientation

Again, when getting someone to conjure up thoughts of a radiator in their mind, it is almost inevitable that they will think about a horizontal radiator. For a very long time, horizontal rads were the only type available and it remains very common for these to be fitted in the space under a window or centrally on a wall.

It's sensible to remove an old radiator and replace it with a radiator of exactly the same dimensions so that no additional work is needed to adjust hot water pipes. This helps to keep costs down and disruption to a minimum and, because horizontal radiators were the only option for such a long time, doing a like-for-like replacement makes complete sense. Of course, we offer a massive range of horizontal column radiators and they continue to be our top-sellers.

However, it's important to point out again, that there is an alternative to the traditional radiator option. Just as design and colour are a way to differentiate your radiators from those of the past, going for a vertical orientation is another way of doing it. Vertical column radiators are also available in a variety of dimensions, column rows and colours so you should in no way feel your are missing out of choice or heat output by going for a vertical rather than a horizontal radiator.

While the column design lends itself well to vertical orientation, many make this choice for practical rather than aesthetic reasons. For small rooms that are short of wall space, installing a vertical column radiator is a great way of utilising upward space and ensuring you can still heat the room to a comfortable temperature. Behind doors or either side of windows are popular positions for installing vertical radiators and they also allow for greater choice in furniture placement.
