European Commission regulation regarding the use of radiators with heat pumps gets overturned
A proposal by the European Commission to label radiators as unsuitable for use with heat pumps has been overturned, a news report reveals.
According to this proposal, labels on heat pump packaging would have featured a radiator with a cross through it, potentially leading to unclear messaging on the benefits of modern steel panel radiators and low water temperature technology.
The UK Manufacturers’ Association of Radiators and Convectors described the decision as “a major victory for the industry”.
“Around 23.6m of the UK’s 26.3m homes have hydronic heating systems and there are around 190m radiators installed. With 70 per cent of the UK’s housing stock of 2050 already in place, if people are to upgrade their systems to incorporate heat pumps it makes sense to use them with radiators,” said chairman John Colling.
While installing heat pumps is certainly a very good method of bolstering any household’s energy efficiency, the truth of the matter is that one can achieve even further cuts on their energy bills with the help of the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valve.
The HeatSave wireless TRVs are extremely easy to set-up and install, since users will only have to unscrew the existing TRV by hand and replace with the HeatSave wireless radiator valve. Plus, they will enable users to slash up to 30 percent off their heating bills.

Furthermore, the user friendly software and USB stick lets anyone wirelessly check and control individual radiators from any Windows™ laptop or PC.
So, one can turn down the heating in rooms that they’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.
