Often the answer is that ‘It is quite old. But runs ok. But we have been told that we need to change it by our plumber/builder’. Here at The Radiator Centre we are not fans off getting rid of perfectly good equipment and incurring un-necessary costs, if it can helped.

They tend to have thick cast-iron heat exchangers, minimal electronics and few moving parts, save from an external… Read more

How To Match Your Radiator With Your Kitchen

How To Match Your Radiator With Your Kitchen As kitchen designers we can be a bit precious about anything that interferes with the sleek lines of a beautifully installed kitchen! Radiators in particular can look incongruous in the midst of a minimalistic kitchen.  We also tend to try and use all the available wall space to maximise storage, leaving little room for heaters.

What is Trench Heating?

Trench heating is a heating system that takes away the need to have standard radiators on the wall. Trenches are dug within the floor and a simple ‘convector unit’ is connected up to the heating system and finished with the one key design feature – the grille. As the system uses natural convection to heat the entire room from floor to ceiling it can be designed to provide heat wherever it is needed in the room. How does trench heating work? The size of the trench determines the amount of heat likely to be generated from this form of heating system. The trench’s width and depth determines the size of the heating element that it contains, but also the amount of cooler… Read more
