Top Tips to find your perfect radiator!

We’re now in the new world of radiator design, with so many inventive designer radiators with unique style, colour, material, shape and sizes. The perfect designer radiator will create a huge impact on the design of your room and bring a touch of style. We offer a large range of beautiful styles and designs to choose from, which can make it difficult deciding which radiator to choose as there’s so much choice!

While the appearance of radiators has changed, their purpose remains the same; to heat your home. Therefore, you must take into consideration a few other factors before choosing the perfect radiator for your home.


Things to consider:

The heat output – It is vital to make sure you calculate the heat output required for each room before choosing the radiator. You will need to calculate how high the heat output needs to be to make sure the radiator is going to heat the room sufficiently. This is dependent on the size and volume of your room. You can work this out by simply using this online BTU Calculator. Please use this as a guideline before consulting with a plumber or heating engineer, as they would be the best person to decide this for you.


The location – Deciding on the location of a radiator was once an easy decision, it would usually be placed in the coldest part of the room which was generally on an external wall under a window. However nowadays, homes are usually very well insulated and have double glazed windows, meaning that this cold spot no longer exists. With all the different size and heat output options contemporary designer radiators give you, you now have many locations that you could consider. We even have space saving options to fit into those small spaces you would never usually consider putting a radiator in, such as the 300mm Excel and the 300mm Champagne.
