Below, we have outlined three questions that you should ask before deciding on a designer radiator. We will explain why the answer to each question is relevant.
- How much heat do you need?
While modern radiators UK will often be very efficient (i.e. be cost effective to run), the designer radiators might not be. Sometimes, because of the design, they take a lot of energy to run. Before you choose your designer radiator, make sure that you calculate the estimated costs of running it.
It could be that you need to buy a much bigger radiator in the designer model in order to produce the correct heat output. This will both cost you more money and might well look out of place if it’s too big.
- Where are you going to hang the radiator?
The main reason that people buy designer radiators is because they look cool. They act as a focal point for the room. However, if you’re radiator is going to be hung somewhere out of the way (e.g. behind a sofa or TV), then choosing a designer version is simply a waste of money. You will need either to rearrange the room, change where the pipes come out, or forgo the designer radiator.
- Are you going to buy thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs)?
