HeatSave – the perfect companion for your energy-efficient designer radiator
“Designer radiators” are becoming increasingly the norm in homes with a high quality finish and, as a result, the market for more stylish heating products has grown rapidly to include a wealth of flat fronted radiators but with significant variations in quality and price. Architects, especially, are looking for radiators that optimise the space they are developing, so want high quality, slimline minimalist radiators, which take up as little living space as possible but provide a great heat output.
The majority of radiators fitting in the “designer” category are specifically designed flat-fronted radiators catering to the architects market, offering clean lines and a high quality finish. They consist of a neat, simple design that sits close to the wall and often have a plain flat top rather than a grille top.
A well designed flat panel radiator will have fins or “convectors” hidden behind the front panel to maximise the heat output. These types of radiators come with either “side connections”, like standard pressed steel radiators, where the valves are installed at the bottom of the radiator on either side, or “underside connections”, where the valves are situated underneath the radiator, either centrally or at either end.
Underside connections are a popular choice especially on vertical radiators as they mean that the valves sit directly underneath the radiator meaning you don’t need to allow any more space to fit the valves in. There may also be other valve connection options available should you require them.
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.
