Designer radiators are becoming increasingly popular with Londoners

Designer radiators that provide a very good level of heat, as well as a striking appearance, are becoming increasingly popular with Londoners, experts in the field have been able to suggest.

The designs can boost heat output with clever ways of arranging tubes or sections. Some use as little as 10 per cent of hot water, compared to a conventional model.

“The priority is to have enough heat – your room type, size and insulation will all affect the style, size and finish of a radiator,” said Nick Duggan, director of The Radiator Centre.

Expert Marcus Orchard, MD of The Radiator Company, added: “You need to look at materials used, heat controls, and consider renewable energy sources. Some radiators have less water in them, so need less energy to heat up, and are cheaper to run. The best material for you depends on what style you want, traditional or modern; and on your heat source, whether traditional fuels or renewable energy.”

The HeatSave wireless programmable thermostatic radiator valves work with the majority of radiators available on the market (either directly or via a dedicated adapter) and allow users to attain even higher savings in terms of energy and bills, of up to an impressive 30 percent. They are extremely easy to set-up and install, since one will only have to unscrew the existing TRV by hand and replace with the HeatSave wireless radiator valve.

Furthermore, the user friendly, web-based HeatingSave software lets you wirelessly check and control individual radiators from any smartphone, tablet or laptop.

This feature will allow you to turn down the heating in rooms that you’re not using and one can also easily plan up to four years in advance for times when the heating will not be in use with the heating holiday diary, while the ‘hands on’ override button on the valve means quick changes are easy from within the room.
