Radiator FAQs
What size radiator do I need for my room?

Determining the right radiator size for your room involves assessing factors like room type, dimensions, window size, and insulation. Typically, you calculate the room's heat loss in BTUs per hour and choose a radiator with sufficient heat output to compensate. Our online heating calculator simplifies this process by generating BTU values based on your inputs and presenting suitable radiator options, which you can further refine to match your preferences.

Which type of radiator is the most energy-efficient?

Radiator efficiency is determined by design and material. 

Aluminium radiators heat up very quickly, providing rapid warmth.

Convector radiators have convection fins for improved heat distribution.

Double-panel radiators have extra surface area for better heat distribution. 

Cast iron radiators retain heat and provide consistent warmth over extended periods.

Column radiators with multiple vertical columns maximise surface area for heat transfer.

How do I bleed a radiator, and why is it necessary?

Our guide, 'How to Bleed a Radiator', offers simple steps and essential tools for this task. By removing trapped air from the heating system, you enhance efficiency. Symptoms of trapped air include cold spots and delayed heating. Regular bleeding optimises heat distribution, maintaining an efficient heating system.

Can I paint my radiator, and if so, what type of paint should I use?

We recommend that if you want to paint your radiator to match your decor or refresh its appearance, check out our custom colour range. If you do paint it yourself, it might void the manufacturer's warranty. Our 'How to Paint a Radiator' guide provides step-by-step instructions, including prep and using heat-resistant paint for durability. This guide includes instructions on painting behind or removing paint from the radiator too.

What is the average lifespan of a radiator?

Radiators can last for decades with proper care. Our products are built to last, but longevity depends on overall system maintenance. Regular checks and prompt repairs can extend the lifespan of your radiators and heating system. As a rough guide, cast iron radiators, with regular maintenance, can last 50+ years, while stainless steel ones can last 30–40 years. Aluminium models have a 25-year lifespan, and steel-panel radiators last 15–25 years. 

Do I need to balance my radiators, and how is it done?

Balancing your radiators every two years ensures efficient heating. It involves adjusting water flow to each radiator for even heating. An unbalanced system can cause uneven temperatures and strain on the boiler. Our guide, 'How to Balance a Radiator,' offers step-by-step instructions, video tutorials, and tool lists to easy work of balancing your system.

Are there eco-friendly radiator options available?

We have many eco-friendly radiator options on offer. These prioritise energy efficiency, sustainability, and environmentally conscious practices. They can feature double convector fins for efficient heat conversion, have programmable thermostats for remote temperature control, or have zoning capabilities to avoid unnecessary heating. Are made from sustainable materials like recycled aluminium or incorporate innovative technologies like infrared heating. All our ranges have long lifespans, and their compatibility with low-temperature systems means significant energy savings and reduced environmental impact.

 

Can I install a radiator myself, or do I need a professional?

Installing a radiator involves working with heating systems and pipes, and it's crucial to ensure the installation is safe and complies with building codes. We have lots of information available in our advice centre to help guide you; however, we would always recommend consulting with a professional initially. They can provide guidance, ensure your plans align with local regulations, and offer tips to make the process smoother.

What should I do if my radiator is not heating up properly?

If your radiator isn't heating up properly, troubleshoot by bleeding air from the radiator, checking the Thermostatic Radiator Valve (TRV), verifying the room thermostat settings, and adjusting the central heating system pressure. Inspect for cold spots, balance the radiator system, and consider a power flush if needed. Ensure the boiler is functioning correctly, and seek professional help if unsure. Always turn off the heating system before maintenance.
