Attic Radiators

It’s a very common now to see the wasted space of attics turned into a workspace or extra bedroom. When doing so one of the most important things to keep in mind is how you’re going to heat it.

Trade Radiators have a selection of radiators that are ideal for attic and loft conversions.

The Right Type of Radiator for Attic Rooms

Trade Radiators have a selection of radiators that are ideal for attic and loft conversions. Knowing what type of radiator to get means you’ll need to think about:

  • The size of the attic
  • The shape of the attic
  • The ideal location of your radiator
  • The height of the walls
  • The existing piping in lower floors

Why is the Size of the Attic Important?

If your attic is small, then you’ll need a compact and efficient radiator to keep the temperature just right. We always suggest using the heating calculator on our site to know what the BTU rate of your attic will be so that you can pick an appropriate radiator.

Why is the Height of the Walls Important?

With the way many houses in the UK have been built, attic conversions typically have a small wall and then a gable wall taking up much of the space. If that’s the case in your attic, you’ll want to consider a compact convector or flat panel radiator that can easily hang on the wall.

If you have a Mansard or Dormer style conversion, you’ll easily be able to choose from almost any of the radiators we have on site.

What Radiators Work Best in a Large Attic?

If you’ve got a long and tall attic, you will want to invest in a good amount of insulation in the space to help keep it warm with minimal fuss.

We recommend longer flat panel radiators if you want a better chance or heat circulating in a larger loft space.

What If I Can’t Pipe Into My Attic?

If getting plumbing piped in is going to cause major issues, you’ll want to save money by getting an electrical radiator. These radiators are automatically filled and only need to be plugged in to work. 

In attic spaces, we recommend getting a rail radiator and installing it horizontally.

What Radiator Brands are Known for Attic Radiators?

Apollo has a diverse range of radiator types that would look great in an attic. In particular, their 300mm by 1400mm Flat Malpensa Aluminium Radiators is a trendy designer radiator to have in a converted space.
