That old flat panel radiator on your sitting room wall that you never even notice until it starts rattling or failing to give off heat should perhaps be replaced. It can be fun choosing different styles of radiator for every room in the house with shapes that look like modern works of wall art.
There are even mirror finished radiators that provide heat whilst you stand in front adjusting make-up or brushing your hair. This type is particularly good in a bedroom or anywhere in a room you are trying to give the illusion of being bigger than it really is.
Visit an online radiator company like Designer Radiators Direct and you’ll quickly discover the reason the word designer is in the name.
Not too many years ago radiators were all very much the same and could only be described as functional and certainly not interesting. But it seems that some smart people have discovered the simple truth about radiators and as long as there is adequate surface area of metal for the room in mind then it can be any sort of shape.
The output heat from a radiator is dictated by the surface area and this is why some radiators can be found with two or three panels back to back. It also explains the reason some have those fins between the panels as this also increases the total surface area.
Good radiator companies are usually a lot more than merely suppliers of the product and are often as is the case here of initially being a plumbing company. Along with plumbing comes central heating and in order to be good at that the firm must also have some Gas Safe engineers.
It is dangerous if not illegal to fit or interfere with modern gas boilers and the term Gas Safe applies to workers legally certificated to do the job professionally.
