Radiators: How to Choose the Best Ones for your Home

If you're planning on installing or upgrading a central heating system, perhaps beautifying your home is the last thing on your mind. But when you visit our Radiator Showroom you're in for a big and pleasant surprise. For designer radiators of today are a thing of beauty as well as a device to warm up your home. Here are some tips on choosing the best designer radiators for your central heating system and for your home.

The first thing to consider is the existing decor of your home and how your new designer radiators will fit in terms of space and colour. Beauty depends on harmony so you'll need to find radiators that fit in with your current decor. You have to consider such matters as colour and the contours and space of your rooms. Fortunately with designer radiators, you have infinite choice of style and colour so you'll always find what you want.

Then there's the matter of placement. If it's a first time installation, survey your home for optimum placement. Follow the standard guidelines for central heating installation. Heating engineers recommend that the optimum location for a radiator is in the coldest part of the room. Plus it should be installed on the external wall beneath the window. This warms up the cold air coming in through the window. If you have an existing central heating system, you should try to maximise the use of existing pipe work. This avoids the expense and disruption of installing new pipes.

The next thing to consider is the material your new designer radiators are made of. The best options is aluminium. its an extremely efficient heat conductor and has very attractive finishes. However there are some differences. Aluminium is a super conductor. This makes it extremely responsive to your control. Your house warms up quickly when you turn on your central heating. It also cools down just as quickly when you turn it off.

On the other hand, the responsiveness of aluminium radiators combined with their low water content translates into excellent cost efficiency which means lower bills for you, the consumer. What's more, aluminium radiators are very light and easy to install. This often means lower installation fees.

Ultimately, he choice of material is yours. Each material has its own benefits, but aluminium's blend of function, beauty and economy makes it the more attractive.

If you've decided to enhance the beauty and value of your home by adding or replacing designer radiators, it's time to look at some designs online. Browsing at online designer radiator showrooms makes the whole process easy and convenient. Choose some designs and colours that you feel will suit your home. Then call the showroom to discuss such practicalities as availability, pricing and delivery times and procedures. Then, get ready to transform your home in something special - a snug abode that's also the height of style. And it's all done with the wonder of designer radiators.
