In a nutshell, radiators are devices used to increase the temperature of enclosed spaces such as homes and offices. They emit heat and are either powered by electricity or are connected to the central heating system. More advanced models come with several safety features and offer more control to their users when it comes to their temperature settings through thermostats and valves.
Some models might have extra steps in bleeding them but generally, all you need to do is first, turn the radiator off to make bleeding safer and more comfortable. Next, place a rag or towel underneath your radiator. This will catch all the water that might come out when you open your bleeding valve.
Once done, slowly open your radiator’s bleeding valve. It’s usually located at the top. This step will help make the air that has been trapped in your radiator escape. Once you notice that the water is no longer bubbling, this means no more air is escaping. Close the bleeding valve and you’re good to go
Bleeding is done to radiators because there is air trapped inside the system. This can cause your radiator to malfunction and not produce enough heat to warm your place up. One of the signs that your radiator needs bleeding is that they have uneven heat throughout its surface. Usually, the top part isn’t as hot as compared to the rest of the radiator.
Frequent wiping of the exterior of a radiator is more than enough to keep them clean. Just remember that you need to turn the radiator off first before you can start cleaning them. Their surface might be a little bit uncomfortable for you if you don’t cut the heat off. Some radiators are also powered by electricity and it would be a whole lot safer if you cut the electricity off first before cleaning your radiator.
If you have an electric radiator, then all you need to do is push the power button which is usually located in its thermostat or turn down the thermostat. However, if you have a radiator that’s connected to the central heating system, the process would be a little bit different.
In essence, you need to cut off the heat that comes from the central heating system to turn your radiator off. You can do this by turning its valves clockwise which closes the passageway through which heat from the system flows through to your radiator. Another option would be to turn off your central heating system entirely.
As the name suggests, designer radiators are heating appliances that don’t just prioritise their heating performance, but also their style, design, and overall general look. They can be slightly different from normal radiators and might have better materials used in manufacturing them.
They typically have modern designs that are sleek and subtle which makes them blend perfectly in a room without sticking out and be easily recognised as a radiator. As expected, designer radiators might come at a higher price. To compensate, brands fill them with advanced heating technology and safety features most radiators don’t have.
There can be minute differences when it comes to the heat output of vertical and horizontal radiators. In some cases, vertical radiators can’t draw cold air upwards for convection as good as horizontal ones. But in most cases, the difference is negligible.
What you should consider is the interior design and space that you have. Some homes might have a layout where a vertical radiator would fit better. Others could be better off with a horizontal one.
Since radiators are designed to dissipate heat, they’re typically made from material that conducts heat quickly and can spread it to your room without getting damaged. Examples of these materials would be stainless steel and aluminium. They, however, could come in different colours and finishes such as white, black, and chrome.
Radiators’ prices come in a wide range. Since radiators have different sizes, features, brands, and styles, you will find yourself with tons of choices if you’re in the market for one. Here in QBIC, the prices are within the range of £16 to £990. While the price difference is huge, you also get more heat output and features as you go up the price range.
The more affordable ones are typically compact radiators which are the perfect combination of durability, simplicity, and value. On the top end of the range lies your designer radiators which boast function, style, and sophistication.
First, you’ll notice that they have smaller form factors and are thinner than most radiators. Because of this, they might have lower heat output compared to their bigger brothers. But since they’ll most likely be installed inside smaller rooms and apartments, they have more than enough power to heat up a whole room.
More often than not, compact radiators connect to the central heating system and will therefore be less expensive to run compared to electric radiators.
You have an array of choices for the size of the radiator you want to install in your home. The good thing is that radiators’ sizes are directly proportional to their heat output. This means that the bigger the heat output, the bigger their size, generally speaking. If you have a small house, you will only need a small radiator, too. Some models only have dimensions of 300 mm. X 400 mm.
